Concentrating in Prayer (Salat)  

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

I find it difficult to concentrate in my prayer (salat). At times I forget whether I have done the simplest of things, such as one prostration or two. Sometimes, I have repeated the prayers in which this has happened, but now, it occurs so often, even in the repeated prayers, that I have stopped repeating the prayers. Is what I have done correct? Is this due to waswasa?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
