Q: I have been having a problem for very long now, like a year. Its the  problem of waswasa. I get these thoughts of kufr and I can’t stop it. I know we are supposed to ignore it but the shaytaan overtakes me. I know there is no god but Allah and this deen truly is the haq but shaytaan gives me waswasa.I have had enough now. I am always depressed. Is there any way to stop this?


A: Don’t worry about these waswasahs. It is not a sin to have a waswasah. Hence, there is no need to worry about it and look for any cure. Don’t take the trouble to answer them. Just ask for Allah’s protection and leave areas that could influence you.

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