Fatwaa ID: 1393
Please help me, i experienced many kufr thoughts even in salah, like for example when someone walks past me when I prostrate I have like this whisper saying ‘i’m prostrating to that person’ but then I reject it and say in my head I only prostrate to Allah and then I worry about myself whether I held it intentionally in my mind, and now I strat to get worried and depressed because of this and occurs many times, even when watching things like ‘is this person god?’ or ‘he is’ but I don’t utter them but idk whether i still held these willfully and I’m scared and i always oppose it and reject by saying in my mind only Allah is god. please help me, please answer. i even read my adhkaar etc.. still happens
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
May Allaah Ta’aala make it easy for you. It is clear from your query that you are suffering from waswasah. These thoughts are from the shaytaan. Ignore them. Do not entertain them. You are not accountable for such thoughts. The more you entertain them and let them affect you, the more the shaytaan gets the upper hand. When such thoughts come to your mind, say a’udhu billaah. When performing salaah, keep your gaze focused at the prescribed places, such as the place of sujood. This will assist in increasing your khushoo’ and focus in salaah. As you perform salaah, ponder and reflect over what you are reciting.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
