Question ID: #5589
Question: 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.

You have not committed Shirk. These are involuntary thoughts.

You must Ignore and discards these thoughts.

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)

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

And Allah knows best
