Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

Respected brother/sister,

The fact that you feel disgusted by such thoughts is a proof of your Iman. It is mentioned in a narration of Sahih al-Muslim,

عن أبي هريرة، قال: جاء ناس من أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، فسألوه: إنا نجد في أنفسنا ما يتعاظم أحدنا أن يتكلم به، قال: «وقد وجدتموه؟» قالوا: نعم، قال: «ذاك صريح الإيمان، )أإخرجه مسلم في صحيحه (1/ 119(

Abu Hurairah mentions, "A few companions came to the prophet and said, "O Rasūlullah صلى الله عليه و سلم , we perceive in our hearts certain things (thoughts) which we deem to be too grave to discuss. We would not even love to have the entire world in exchange of discussing it.” Rasūlullah صلى الله عليه و سلم responded, “Do you really perceive that?” They replied, “Yes.” Rasūlullah صلى الله عليه و سلم then said, “That is evident Imān.” (Sahih Muslim, 1/119)

The devil will try his level best to make a servant despondent. However, we should ignore such thoughts, and continue with carrying out good deeds.

And Allah knows best
