aslam o alikum I suffer from these intrusive thoughts and I’m always getting this feeling that something comes out whenever I take a shower and the water is being poured forth and it’s a strong feeling and I’m not sure what to do. Also I feel that I’m still impure or my private part is impure after taking a shower and that the water on my private part is impure if it touches any part and falls on my legs or feet . Is it considered to be impure after taking shower?I also always get this feeling 24/7 non stop and every few minutes and that something comes out.

In addition what should one person do if poop splashes come onto them. Is it excused if I try my best to clean whatever area it hit.

where can I find practicing Muslim physiatrist in Brooklyn , New York I need one urgently

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala grant you the strength to overcome your difficulty. May He grant you peace and comfort.

It is obvious from your question that you are suffering from waswasah. Such intrusive thoughts and doubts are from the shaytaan. Ignore them completely. The more you entertain them, the more you will fall into it and thereby make the shaytaan happy.

  1. The default is purity. After you shower, the water on your private parts is definitely pure. The feeling that something is coming out is nothing but the water flowing down. Ignore it. Shower once to the best of your abilities and leave it at that. Do not repeat any part.
  2. Clean that part once only. Do not do anything else.

When such thoughts and doubts come to you, recite أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم and لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم.

We advise you to read and study “Combating the whisperings of Shaytaan” by Shaykh Yunus Patel (R). If necessary, consult a therapist.

I am not familiar with any practicing Muslim psychiatrist in Brooklyn. Refer to your local scholars. They might have a better idea.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
