Remedy for doubts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: There’s a thing that is troubling me a lot. I’m a person who has not much knowledge of Deen and is also stricken with waswas. My waswas were in the form of really complicated questions, about Allah’s attributes, whether something is in Quran/Hadith or not, whether this thing is attributed to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) or not etc. I used to note these down in my phone so that I’d ask someone about these, and that caused the questions to increase that I have this answer in my mind, what if I have done kufr. Then I used to say that Ya Allah if any of this is kufr, forgive me. Is that the right thing to do? Also should I delete all these questions from my phone or seek answers for them in case I have unknowingly done kufr?


A: The better thing is not to pay attention to it and to ask Allah Ta`ala’s assistance, protection and forgiveness. Thereafter don’t pay attention to it.

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