Thank you for answering my previous question, but sadly I am still confused despite you referring me to other fatwas, may you answer this question without reference to other fatwas? QuestionI know that Allah has the power to answer my dua but sometimes when I'm making dua i feel as though I doubt this and I don't really believe it, which I believe is form the Shaytaan, so I have to go into deep thought about how it's easy for Allah to answer my dua which takes some time and makes dua harder for me. I'm not sure if this is from the shaytaan to make me stop making dua or not. I'd like to ask you should I go into deep thought or should I just try to dispel it and make dua.To make my question clearer what should I do? Should I go into deep though while making my dua trying to convince myself that Allah can answer my dua, even though I already know He can but I feel the Shaytan is trying to make me go into this deep thinking because it is very tiring and time consuming so I will stop make dua altogether. Or should I dispel these thoughts and make dua despite having a feel of doubtfulness? Or how am I to deal with such doubtfulness?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

All these are nothing but whispers that the devil casts into your heart to prevent you from doing good.

There is no remedy for these whispers except to neglect them, ignore them and not pay any attention to them.

As long as you believe that Allah is capable of everything and that He answers the supplication of the person who supplicates Him, then repel those whispers and do not get carried away with them or think about them.

Rather, supplicate Allah while being certain that He will answer your supplication.

Whenever the devil whispers to you these thoughts, then ignore them and do not think about them. Being carried away with them and thinking about them will lead you to a great evil.

Allah knows best.
