Stray thoughts

Q: I have waswasahs, and alhamdulillaah I am doing better now in my salah after listening to the advice, but I still have problems with wudoo and I have an issue now about dead skin which I will elaborate about in shaa Allaah. OK so I used a pummelstone on my feet and I had dead skin on my feet then I wore my slippers and performed Wudoo’ washing my feet under the tap properly and then put my slippers back on and took them off to do salah. After salah I see flakes of dead skin on my feet so I look in my slipper and still see the dead skin from before inside of them so, I have 2 questions: 1. The amount of dead skin was considerable and I am doubtful and irritated by not knowing where it came from for sure. 2. I use a tap in Wudoo’ and I used a lot of water blasting it on my feet, and I remember rubbing as well, so can I assume that this amount of water is sufficient to penetrate the dead skin and reach the surface of my foot?


A: These are stray thoughts. The wudhu is right. Don’t pay attention to it.

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