How Allah looks

I have faith in Allah and thanks to Allah who born me in Muslims.
I know and have faith that we cant imagine Allah because this is something beyond humans thinking and imaginary. But that's human nature that whenever human mind thinks about everything mind develope an imaginary or something related to that thing so what I have to imagine whenever I think about Allah. Please answer this question or tell me solution that how I overcome this

Swearing/shirk

I wanted to know if saying “Oh man” or “Oh dude” is considered a form of swearing or shirk. I’m hesitant because when calling upon Allah someone could say “Oh Allah”

Did I sin

is one sinning if one knows the ruling, such as knowing a certain act is a sin but then does the certain act while forgetting that it is a sin and then realises and stops.

Did I commit shirk?

I had not slept the night and only got about 30 minutes before fajr. My mind was clouded with sleepiness as I was doing dhikr,eveytime I uttered the part "None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone" I got thoughts of different things such as Shaitan, dajjal and negative thoughts ( don't know how to describe them).I read the dua Amantu-billahi wa rasulihi, read auoothubillahi, and thought of Allah's names while reading the meaning. I want to believe they are intrusive thoughts but I fear I have committed major shirk as if I was associating and it's disturbing me greatly! I have said the shahada a lot of times. Please advise.

Is this waswasah

In the past I did acts of shirk and kufr.Then this year I decided to learn more about islam and aqidah. I found out that some of my actions lead to kufr and shirk. I am so angry at myself and despaired. I made tauba but I am so scared that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala does not forgive me. I have this feeling that I never would be forgiven. is this only waswasah or am I a hopeless case?

Soul in the grave who did not receive proper message

Assalamu Alaikum,

I wanted to know what happens to a non-muslim in the grave if they are of the ones who did not receive the message of Islam properly. Are they blessed or tormented in the grave? Do they have a garden in paradise or a ditch from the hellfire?

I dont know how to repent. Everytime i try i lose the guilt soon after and i think my repentance is not sincere so i repeat it.
And i have a big problem with waswas. Can you commit shirk in your heart. And do you know how i can get rid of these evil thoughts forever?

Am I committing shirk?

Assalamu Alaikum,
I have an OCD and I get intrusive thoughts usually due to this. While browsing the net, I came across an article which said that if one commits a sexual activity with a specific intention to get something they desire and if they think about that during the activity (especially the climax), they will get what they desired. For example, if one wants wealth and has sex for that and imagines wealth at climax, he'll get wealth. They call this sex magic and it works. I know this is a sin and maybe shirk. Now I had sex and while that, my fearful thoughts came up before the sex, during it, and at climax,though I did not want them. Have I done the so-called sex magic and have I done shirk for this?

Hadith

Assalamualalykum
I am a hanfi follower and my question is about 3 similar hadiths with sperate narratives:
First one is
"Indeed there will be a Mahdi who comes in my Ummah (ruling) living for five, or seven, or nine."- Zaid was the one in doubt- He said: "We said: What is that?" He said: "Years." He said: "A man will come to him and say: O Mahdi! 'Give to me, give to me! So he will fill in his garment whatever he is able to carry.'"
Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2232
"The Mahdi will be among my nation. If he lives for a short period, it will be seven, and if he lives for a long period, it will be nine, during which my nation will enjoy a time of ease such as it has never enjoyed. The land will bring forth its yield and will not hold back anything, and wealth at that time will be piled up. A man will stand up and say: 'O Mahdi, give me!' He will say: 'Take.'"
Sunan ibn majah 4039
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The Mahdi will be of my stock, and will have a broad forehead a prominent nose. He will fill the earth will equity and justice as it was filled with oppression and tyranny, and he will rule for seven years.
Sunan Abi Dawud 4285
So i just wanted to know please what is the correct amount of years that the mahdi will rule for according to scholars since 7 years are mentioned also 9 and 5.

Watching Na mehram by mistake

If we see a women by mistake it,s sin or not ? for example if wee see her & look at her. now her image will be in our mind, so thinking about her cloth or her shape like tights (not intentionally) is sin or not ?

Evil thoughts

Assalaamu alaykum.
I am in dire need of advice, I am trying to keep my question brief but I ask of you please do advise me as much as possible as the problem which I go on to discuss has really been affecting me considerably, to the point where it is even affecting my 'ibadah.

I have been getting terrible thoughts in my mind. Thoughts which I have no control over and they are causing me such grief and upset and I fear Allah is very displeased with me. The more good I try to do in my deen, the more severe the thougts become.. I researched about this and saw many answers that these may be waswas from shaytaan but I also know that I have quite an obsessive compulsive mind so my mind will think of a topic so hard without my will! My teacher was speaking of shirk and the punishment and a lesson and it scared me so much I could not control my mind from stop thinking about it and now it is like shaytaan is forcing me to think bad shirk thougts and they are hurting and upsetting me ever so much & I fear Allah may take it that I am actually commiting shirk! La hawla wala quwatta illah billah. If the thoughts are because of my own obsessive mind, will Allah take these thoughts as they are from myself as though I have willing thought tor committed these dreadful things? I am so scared that Allah has that it has seriosuly affected my imaan and I am so anxious about this that it is making the thoughts come even more..

When I am in salah horrible shirk thoughts come to my mind which I cannot control and it is so upsetting. I believe in Allah & my deen 100% and so I am so angered over these thoughts and scared. Will Allah accept that, whether these thoughts are from shaytaan or because I have an obsessive compulsive mind, that I do not mean them and cannot control them so much? Have I commited something awful? Please help me brothers, please.

Did I do kufr?

Assalaamu alaykum.. I am in a crisis and I beg of my brothers inislam/respected brothers to please help me
I will try to keep my question as brief as possible. May Allah reward you all for your help.

I recently submitted a question regarding some terrible thoughts I had been having but I now need to speak of something so stupid which I did but by Allah I did not intend it as kufr!!

I only became a muslim last year and I have whole faith in Allah as my Lord and islam as my deen.

I did something so awful and I only realised afterwards I may have done something wrong.. I am very ashamed to write this out but please do not judge or wonder why I made the stupid joke..

I was messing around and joking with my brother and I was impersonating a male muslim character and at some point (still in character) I said ''I am a buddhist'' I immediately after thought this was a stupid joke and I am very much sorry over making it. I did not intend it as kufr from myself and did not realise at the time I was wrong ASTAGHFIRULLAH. I feel so upset as I type this as I saw your answer on another question here saying that even if somebody jokes around with statements it is regarded as kufr.. Now what can I do? I felt so content after accepting islam and now have I became a kafir again??? Am I out of Allah ta'ala's mercy?? I did not mean to do this and I am so grieved over this wallahi. It is affecting my life, I cannot focus on my deen properly and I am worried about my actions and thoughts all the time now. I love Allah so much and there I want nothing more than nearness to Him, His pleasure and a home with Him in jannah. These days I cannot feel close to Allah because I am so worried over what I did joking and because of bad thoughts entering my mind.

Please tell me what should I do now? Am I a kafir? I did not intend the joke as kufr at all and it is only after researching that I have really understood the full seriousness over my stupid words.. I did not mean them wallahi.

Please reply soon, I am so worried that I may be outside of Allah's mercy now but He is so beloved to me and now I may not even receive His mercy. I cannot cope with this.

Duas requested please

Blasphemy

Salam, there is a website namely:

[Admin edit: Links removed]

that is edited by some former Muslims (Amar Khan etc). I would like to humbly request the Ulama to review this website and at least counter argue the points he has written to save the fragile Muslim youngsters from becoming murtad. He has written articles insulting the Quran and the Beloved Messenger of Allah (Peace be Upon Him) and people are believing his articles due to the way he has written them with supposed sources etc. This website could be a means of people leaving the fold of Islam unless people have peace of mind that his arguments are baseless (which they are) and this will only happen if someone writes an article confirming the 'baselessness' of what he has written.

JazakAllah Khair.
May Allah highly reward the person taking the time out to answer this very important issue.

Disbelief

Aslamulaikum,

Does saying the following make one a kaafir?
If such and such happened I would be driven to kufr
I will become a kaafir
Honestly, I am close to becoming a kaafir
I would become a kaafir if there was another Lord to believe in
This is a rubbish life

Thank you for your time. Jazakallah.
