Bismilla Hirrahma Nirraheem, wassalato wassalaamo ala sayyidil mursaleen
I have been suffering from WASWAAS (it could be Obsessive compulsive disorder). I never behaved like this before in my life. I do crazy things at times e.g again and again reminding myself that i cleaned myself in the washroom. take like 30 minutes for a bath to assure i am purified. and once something bad passes by my mind i start analyzing it for almost hundred times to ensure myself as nothing has gone wrong. Please help me out, as this problem has seriously put me in a depressed state. Please pray for me, May ALLAH give long and healthy life to our Master Moulana Shaikh Nazim AL Haqqani and bless you all, bihaqqay Sayyidina Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihi wasallam. -Wassalaam
wa `alaykum salam,
Insha-Allah we pray for you and recite 3 Quls 100 x per day. I saw many cases of people like you that take 1 hour for wudu and alhamdulillah now in 2 minutes they finish. You have to tell yourself, “I only allow 2 minutes to finish” and you have to count the time and finish in that time, and if you don’t finish in that time pray without renewing wudu as this is shaytan playing with you. So after one day, 2 days you find that you are keeping the time. Then make up the prayers you missed due to shaytan and Allah will accept but don’t let this waswas into your life. Don’t analyze too much, What are you analyzing? Analyze your craziness first.
