Benefit: No Attention Is Paid to Doubts in Worship in Three Scenarios

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (رحمه الله) stated:

Doubt [by definition] is: going back and forth between two things whichever of them occurred, and no attention is paid to doubt in worship in three scenarios:

  1. If it [stemmed] purely from delusion, which has no reality to it such as the whispers [of Shayṭān].
  2. If it occurs frequently with an individual so much so that he does not perform an act of worship except that [he has present with him doubts] in it.
  3. If it occurred after he completed an [act of] worship.
Hence, no attention ought to be paid to it so long as he was not certain of the affair. Consequently, he should act upon his certainty.
