Suffering from severe Waswasa (shaytaani whispers)

I am suffering from severe Waswasa. I try to ignore them but I am afraid that what if I ignore something as Wasawasa but in fact its not Waswasa and in fact impurity is there. What should I do? I think not a single of my Salaah is accepted.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Sister in Islam,

We understand your predicament, may Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) alleviate you from your predicament. Aameen.

There are many ways to deal with Wasawis (evil whisperings):

1. Whenever any doubt/waswasa arises, tell yourself that your Salaah, Wudhu, Ghusl and everything else is correct and valid no matter what Shaytani whisperings enter the mind. As a remedy, tell yourself that every action of mines is valid irrespective of the evil whisperings. This may difficult for the first few times, it will become much easier after effort and hard work.

2. Remind yourself constantly that these thoughts are from Shaytaaan, how can I listen to them and give them credence? How can they be correct and authentic?

3. Implore Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) in Du’aa to alleviate you from your predicament. Du’aa is the most powerful weapon of the believer.

4. All that is needed is resolute courage and firm determination to extricate oneself from such a problem. Never give up hope. Always tell yourself that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
