Performing shukar salaah few times a day

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Regarding Shukar Salaah, I read 2 rakaat to thank Allah for all that he has given me, I’m content with all that I have, but I tend to read it 3-4 times a day. Will reading it once a day be sufficient? It’s more like OCD, where as if I don’t read it, I might lose what I have. So will reading it once a day be fine?


A: Yes. The day you wish to do it twice you may do it and if you wish to do it thrice you may do it.

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