Missing Salaah due to doubts and waswasahs

Q: I have been missing and delaying prayers due to the time it takes me to make istinja and Wudu because I am suffering from OCD/Waswasas. I feel like a kafr because I have heard that your’re a kafr if you miss prayers without an acceptable reason. I am definitely not missing/delaying prayers on purpose so am I considered a kafr? What should I do about this situation?


A: Just read your namaaz in the state you are in and do not worry about these thoughts. Your imaan is safe.

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