Stray thoughts

Q: I have very bad thoughts all the time, even while making wudu and performing Salaah which I am feeling very shameful to tell. I am married but my thoughts are very bad and it is effecting my concentration on my work and it is also effecting my performance. Please advise me what to do and what to read?


A: Do not pay attention to these stray thoughts. Commence the recitation of fazaail-e-amaal, fazaail-e-sadaqaat and fazaail-e-durood morning and evening. Insha Allah these stray thoughts will go away.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : جاء ناس من أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فسألوه إنا نجد في أنفسنا ما يتعاظم أحدنا أن يتكلم به قال أو قد وجدتموه قالوا نعم قال ذاك صريح الإيمان (رواه مسلم باب بيان الوسوسة في الإيمان وما يقوله من وجدها 1/79)
