Bad thoughts of Allah Ta’ala

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a serious problem of blasphemous abusive words that comes frequently for Allah. Now I am just ignoring it but before I didnt know how to deal with them. A few years back, I used to correct those thoughts and repeat within my mind, by saying that Allah is great. And then I used to say blasphemy words to shaitan that you are this….. (bad and vulgar words). Sometime ago I was talking to my relative, and all of a sudden when I was correcting her I spoke those bad words for Allah. Since then I am very upset and have feeling remorse. Sometimes this thought comes that I am actually thinking these words on purpose.


A: Recite the kalima in abundance and don’t pay attention to these thoughts. Refrain from all types of anti islamic literature, doubtful company and wrong places. Frequent the company of some pious and righteous Aalim. Daily reserve some tome for the recitation of Qur’an and making taleem of Fazaail-e-Aamaal and Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat with your family.

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