Negative thoughts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am trying to feel close to Allah by not committing sins like avoiding porn and not mastrubating and not listening to music but the thing which is disturbing me is Shaytan. Shaytan is putting anxiety in me by making me think that I became pious. I will die soon. My health anxiety is disturbing me and I keepthinking that I may suffer from a heart attack, cancer, etc.

I am trying and I know it’s Shaytan but over time it becomes miserable for me to bear that negative thoughts are circulating in my whole body. Please make dua for me and suggest a short wazifa to get rid of the waswasas and other thoughts from Shaytan that are overpowering me.


A: These thoughts are from Shaitaan. Ignore all these thoughts and turn to Allah Ta’ala in repentance. After salaah make dua to Allah Ta’ala to keep you firm on deen and safeguard you from falling into sins.

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