  • This is not shirk because you didn't associate Allah with anoyone nor you worhsipped anyone except Him so don't be sad and forget about it Jul 23 at 0:08

Salam, please never act upon these thoughts. They are from shayatiin and/or jinn and wiswas. “There is no sin for you in that which ye proclaim or hide in your minds.”

(Q, 2:235) Just because you get these thoughts, it doesn’t hold you against the sin. Try to brush them or ignore them. I deal with these too and it’s hard. It’ll be easy if you keep your deen in mind and miracles of the Quran.

    But l think l get these thoughts purposely and Jul 23 at 5:09

I get these sometimes too. I have two hadith to share with you that really helped me.

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) observed: Verily Allah forgave my people the evil promptings which arise within their hearts as long as they did not speak about them or did not act upon them.


It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that some people from amongst the Companions of the Apostle (ﷺ) came to him and said: Verily we perceive in our minds that which every one of us considers it too grave to express. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Do you really perceive it? They said: Yes. Upon this he remarked: That is the faith manifest.


Realizing these are bad thoughts and therefore not acting upon them or speaking them is a sign of a person's faith. Verily Allah has already forgiven the ummah of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) for these thoughts.
