A sufficient protection, with the permission of Allah, the Most High, for those afflicted with Wiswās and distress

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم


I’m someone who suffers from wiswās which is making me in despair of my life. I’m pessimistic, I feel depressed, and I can’t concentrate. I fear for the future, I fear getting married, and my chest always feels constricted. I feel anxiety and have sleepless nights.Wallahul-Must’ān.
Advise me, may Allaah reward you with good.


You should seek refuge with Allaah from the accursed shaytān, and strive to increase in the remembrance of Allah such as seeking forgiveness, as well as striving to be in the sittings of knowledge.

You should educate yourself concerning the religion of Allaah, and abide by (to the best of your ability) that which Allaah has obligated for you.

Furthermore, you should also free yourself from oppression and what it entails (i.e if you stole something or damaged someone’s property etc).

For this is a cure for the heart, the body, and is a remedy.
