Stray thoughts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a problem, a big problem. Inside my head/heart I always have a whisper that is very wrong if said using my mouth. The whisper is like it is easier if we don’t need to do ghusl like others, whisper like ghusl is a burden. It happens in my head. Afterwards, I quickly do istighfar and say Lailaha ilallah muhammadur Rasulullah. I am afraid. I know its very wrong if I said that with my mouth and can be kufr.


A: Do not pay attention to these stray thoughts. These stray thoughts are whispers of Shaitaan.

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