Answer

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We advise you not to entertain doubts. Doubts are from Shaitaan. Recite the following abundantly to overcome waswasah,

أعوذُ باِللهِ مِنَ الشَّيطَانِ الرَّجِيم[1]

Translation: I seek refuge in Allaah from the rejected devil.

لاحول ولا قوة إلا بالله

Translation: There is no power and no might except with Allaah.

 

You may also read the following book: Combating the Whisperings of Shaitan by Shaykh Yunus Patel (Rahimahullaah) for effective methods on dealing with waswasah.

Also, you may consider consulting a psychiatrist for further advice.

 

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.

{وَإِمَّا يَنْزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ نَزْغٌ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ}
