If you have waswasa regarding passing of wind: You shouldn't presume based on sensation, but should only redo wudu when you have clearly heard it or smelt it: Narrated `Abbad bin Tamim: My uncle asked Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the prayer. Allah' Apostle replied: "He should not leave his prayers unless ...

As a general rule, you are not punished for something that is out of your control. And thoughts are notoriously undisciplined. There are several hadiths about it, for example Al-Bukhaari (5269) and Muslim (127) also narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah, ...

To answer this question, we really first of all need to go through the terms you are using and define them. Also, we must go through the verses you are quoting. Then we might come to a conclusion. So as you say, doubt and waswas might not be the same thing, they might be related, but that again depends of your definition of the word waswas. What does ...

No one can really answer your question except Allah, then you. This is a test, but here is how you can try to figure out the cause. It is a test to all, believers and non-believers alike. Tests and tribulations are what distinguishes between one who is sincere and one who is lying. The Prophet said in this long hadith (only partially quoted): تعرض الفتن على ...

Not sure what I write will be fully on-topic but just wanted to help. There's no way to differentiate these unless one displays the severe symptoms associated with an all-out demonic possession which is obviously not your case. But to combat these thoughts, you don't have to try chasing them out of your mind or feeling guilt or getting overly stressed. ...

I keep saying that tahara and najasa have only a tangential connection to cleanness, hygiene, dirtiness and impurity. They primarily are ritual necessities! Usually the dogs at airports don't sniff or come too close to any bag unless it has either some food they may like in it (and if they are well trained they wouldn't even do this) or it contains drugs (...

Don't overcomplicate wudu. In Quran it is said, "O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles". So it should not be too hard to make sure that you washed your face and other parts at least once. With Salah, Prophet gave us the best ...

Performing some of the acts of wudu' three times actually is recommended in order to solve such cases. This is based on the practice of the prophet () see for example in al-Muwatta' and Sahih al-Bukhari. Washing your face during wudu' is a fard (ordered) act, as Allah says: O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your ...

This is definitely shaytaan messing with your mind, you must fight and ignore them. And those who strive for Us - We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good. [29:69] Keep on seeking refuge in Allah (أعوذ بالله مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ) each time these thoughts come up and remind yourself that the evil could never ...

I'm not a scholar, so take what I say with a grain of salt. In general, according to Islam, actions are judged according to the intentions. On the authority of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen (the Commander of the Faithful), Abu Hafs `Umar ibn al-Khattab radiAllahu anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam say: “Actions are but by ...

First of all, as you said that you didn't even know that what you did was kufr/sin and now when you have realised that so it means you are now a changed person and won't do that again. Just ask for forgives from Allah that's it. Allah is the (Rehman) Most Merciful of all. He likes the people who turn to Him in repentance. Following are some quotes related to ...

First of all, Quran is a book of knowledge. There is no doubt in it. That is a firm belief of a true Muslim. How does one acquire knowledge? Through reasoning. Using God given mental faculties. Now let's apply reasoning to the world and universe around us. Cause and effect is everywhere. Without a physical cause affecting someone or something is not how ...

Ive suffered from mental illness for the past 15 years. I am 32 years old now. A lot of my illness had to do with religious ocd. Take it from me, don't worry at all about God not accepting your prayers or about going to Hell or any of this stuff.

Wasak wr wb Simak, May Allah ease you of your OCD. Bad or distracting thoughts in salaat are from the shaitan. Uthman b. Abu al-'As reported that he came to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) and said: Allah's Messenger, the Satan intervenes between me and my prayer and my reciting of the Qur'an and he confounds me. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said:, ...

Asak! I'll try to answer your question but it will be in an indirect way. Below is a famous Hadith: " Hanzala Usayyidi, who was amongst the scribes of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ). reported: I met Abu Bakr. He said: Who are you? He (Hanzala) said: Hanzala has turned to be a hypocrite. He (Abu Bakr) said: Hallowed be Allah, what are you saying? Thereupon he said: ...

The essentials include at the very least that Allah is the only god there has ever been, that Muhammad is his messenger and everything he said is true (note: this does not mean that one has to have conviction into all ahadith being true to be Muslim because ...
