OCD is medical condition. We advise you consult your physician for diagnosis and medication. We are hopeful that appropriate medication will help alleviate your disorder.


Simply ignore such thoughts and do not pay any attention to them. Do not allow the whispers of shaytan to intimidate you. When you experience such thoughts recite,

اعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم 

I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytan.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
