How can I identify if a thought that I'm having is a Westwater

00:00:08--> 00:00:50

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about what was that is a sound that refers to a word or a concept. And the concept of what's what's that is the clickety clack of gold on top of each other. It's that allure. It's certain things that make us want to be competitive and habitual in certain things. A modern understanding also of what's worse, is that it's a natural compulsion. Usually people have that natural component of saving and wanting and hoarding and making extra wealth and wanting to be prosperous. Nowadays, we find that there's also compulsions in certain behaviors. And a part of it that is referred to by the prophet SAW, Selim, is

00:00:50--> 00:01:33

in things that relate to will do, that's something the Prophet clearly speaks about. He says, Don't let the shape on metal with you, in terms of your flatulence in your window, have I broken my will do or not. And he actually says to us, I don't know how to sell them. Don't leave your prayer, suspecting in your mind that your will do is broken, unless you actually smell the scent of flatulence, or you've heard a definite audible sound that others are privy to OCD is a recognized mental health issue. And that word mental health is not and should not contain a stigma within our assignment communities. Although sadly, it does. There are processes that can heal you from them

00:01:33--> 00:02:14

from some of the compulsive disorders. So panela, there are some brothers who say I've make we'll do 40 times just to be make just to be sure, sometimes I'm in the shower for up to an hour just to be me to make sure I'm clean. You know, those are things that go beyond the limit. So how do we deal with that? It's a very simple thing, learn the widow of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And what you will see is, as you see me cupping my hands, to full hands of this, two of these, the water that is filling my two cupped hands, is the entire amount of water the Prophet made is we'll do it with it's an amazing statement, the profits, I sell them in one of the ways that he says that don't

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

waste water even if you're in the middle of a running River. So as a part of countering that West WESA is that you learn that we do have the profit haven't demonstrated to you the small amount of water that trickles down your forearm that is rubbed into it, that is the essence of will do not what we believe is an aspect of cleanliness. So limit yourself to the student of the province, I sell them. And finally I say to you, there are at times necessary clinical interventions that need to be made to allow you a process to come out of OCD symptoms and what's what's a related symptoms that manifest from a religious origin. I do recommend to you to speak to a clinician, begin with a

00:02:56--> 00:03:09

doctor and see how you proceed with that child. Thank you for watching. Please subscribe to the channel and like the videos so that you can get notified of the new releases and consider donating to this worthy cause.
