Assalam o Alikum. I suffer from different problems regarding the waswas. Last night i was reciting Holy Quran. Suddenly a shirk thought came in my head. I just closed my eyes. But then I again got a thought that people usually close their eyes to show agreement or permission to something. So now i feel that I've intentionally committed shirk. I am not sure whether i have committed shirk or Shaytan is whispering. In my heart i know that Allah is the only God amd Islam is the true religion. I'm very anxious right now. I'm fearful of doing shirk.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

You have not committed Shirk. These are involuntary thoughts.

You must Ignore and discards these thoughts, don’t isolate and withdraw yourself, keep social contact with family and friends, keep yourself busy and active, make a routine in your life.

Keep away from sins.

Recite Ruqya verses such as Surah Ikhlas, Falaq and Naas, Ayatul Kursi (2:255). Recite a page or two daily with intention of completing the Quran, make the habit of listening to Quran daily.

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

“And We send down of the Qur'an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.“(17:82)

Learn your Deen. Be in the company of the pious. Keep in contact with your local imam or an upright Muslim counsellor.

If this has become clinical get help and support from GP services.

Always make Du’a of Shifa. May Allah grant you Shifa, Ameen.

And Allah knows best
