Stray thoughts

Q: I’m trying to reform and i’m sinning to the point where I get out of the fold of Islam due to the whispers of Shaitaan and his mind warping ability. When I redo the Shahada, I start seeing things within my mind and start focusing on them due my psychosis and Shaitaan. Does my Shahada still become come valid. It’s very difficult to have the meaning in my mind properly while I read it. What should I do?


A: Do not pay attention to all these wasaawis and stray thoughts. It will not effect your Imaan in any way. You are still a Muslim.

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