1.What is islaams view on ocd? 2.Is the earnings one receives from a pyramid scheme allowed ?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamualaikum For some years now i have been suffering from what psychologists call obsessive compulsive disorder. It causes me to wash my hands/clothing/objects numerous as i feel they are napaak.Is this real or is it just the whisperings of the shaytaan? Pyramid schemes – one has to give a certain amount of money to become a part of this organistion .You than try to get as many people interested in the concept as possible . As these people buy from selected stores they than get a discount and you get a percentage of what they paid.Is this permissible in islaam.

Answer

Undoubtedly, when Shaytaan was banished from paradise, he swore an oath to
lead the progeny of Aadam (Alayhis salaam) astray. Allah Ta’ala said that he
would be able to do so but he would fail with pious people.

Shaytaan is very intelligent and misleads every person differently. He
misleads some by trying to keep them away from the worship of Allah Ta’ala.
for other, he will distract their worship. Shaytaan is trying to keep you
away from Ibaadat (i.e. to be Paak) by instilling doubts in the heart. He
would keep trying till he succeeds. Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has
warned us of the Shaytaan’s misleading whisperings and has told us about his
strength and how to overcome him. When you wash, be cautious and careful,
taking care in your washings, yet be swift. Thereafter, disregard all doubts
and recite, ‘A’oodhu billaah’ when a doubt occrs. Insha Allah, Shaytaan will
given up his effort of troubling you.

Concerning the pyramid sale, please forward more detail of the scheme and
its operation.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
