Losing concentration and composure in Salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a mental disability where I have psychosis, ocd, and split personality disorder. Sometimes in my Salaah it is not within my control to control the peace of mind and thus my ustaad ruled that for me, being in a state of peace or not does not count for me and my salaah will be fine. My question is, I sometimes do my Salaah when I am at peace but I mistakenly make the mistake of being not calm due to my illness. What should I do in this case with the Salaah that I have ruined in terms of I had already had peace in my mind and intentionally by accident got not peaceful?


A: Make a little istighfaar.

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