Assalamu alaikum What does it mean when a true educated believer starts having doubts and negative thoughts about Allah?
such as thinking, if Allah created us, then who created a lot, or trying to imagine how Allah looks like or thinking of a very horrible situation about Allah? Do you know that some of the companions struggled with this? One of them went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, Oh prophet of Allah, I have these negative thoughts that come to me. thoughts that he feels are so bad and disrespectful to Allah, as if they are cursing Allah. And he said, I would rather die before I say and believe in what I'm thinking aloud. In one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the companions wakad Raja to move. Do you really find these thoughts as being wrong? And one
should not say or even think of something like that? about Allah? They said nom, yes, of course. Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that sorry, holy man, this experience of yours is a sign of true faith. One may wonder how is that the fact that you find these thoughts as wrong and you dislike them? is a sign that you are a true believer, and it is a sign that these thoughts are not from you, but from the shavon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in one narration Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah and Lydia Radha, Morocco, el wasa, the one who limited the influence of the devil to only whisper and nothing more than that. This comes to prove to you one
more time that you are fine and that these thoughts are from the shape on and not from yourself. However, brothers and sisters, there are three things the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do whenever the shavon whispers bad thoughts about Allah to us. Number one, failure status Billa The moment you have these thoughts say I seek Allah's refuge from the devil or Oh Billahi min ash upon and mean every word in this drop. Number two when he until he stopped thinking about it, do not give these bad thoughts any attention. Do not go on YouTube and start watching devilish videos that would put such thoughts in your head while knowing what is being said as wrong. Do not put
yourself in such a situation that she thought you know what he tries to do. He tries to make us feel that we are hypocrites. How can you do all of these acts of worship but have these negative thoughts about Allah, you apostate You are a hypocrite your prayers and acts of worship are meaningless. And then some would fall for his trap and let go some of these acts of worship. Therefore, number two, when the entity do not entertain these thoughts, and give the shaitaan a chance to affect you in any way. Lastly, number three, a person should say meant to be learned he was truly I believe in Allah and His messenger. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, doing this you will eventually kick
away these negative thoughts and protect you from the trap of shaitan. So please be rest assured these type of whispers of the shaytaan is a sign that a person has true faith. No matter how evil these thoughts sound against Allah. As long as you dislike it and hate it then no problem. You will not be held accountable. May Allah bless your faith and feel free to share this video for others to benefit Assalamu alaikum
