Forgetting in Salaah

Q: I am having difficulty in praying salah. I have some memory problem, sometimes I don’t remember how many sajdah or rakats I do, I don’t remember what I recite during salah, it takes me upto 3 times more time to pray a salah than a normal person and I am also very slow the way I do things, I have poor time management skill, each salah I have to do wudu and change my clothes because after urinating I get drop of urine comes out. So you can see I have to make alot effort and do many things to pray salah, would I be punish if I don’t pray?


A: Definitely. Don’t pay attention to your doubts. Go on performing your salaah based on your dominant thought.

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