Answered by Shaykh Omar Subedar

Question:

Does excessive satanic whispers (waswasās) nullify the alāh (ritual prayer)?

Answer:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Jazāk Allāh Khayr/ Thank you for contacting Mathabah for your question.

Satanic whispers do not nullify the alāh as none of the jurists have considered it to be among the factors that invalidate the prayer. However one should try his or her utmost to concentrate in the prayer as much as possible.

And Allāh Knows Best
