Home Q&A Salaah Doubts in Prayer

Q: How can one get rid of continious doubts during prayer, if it happens with almost every prayer. For example: Continious doubts when in next stage of prayer one has not done the former act. Or when reading additional surah that one has not recited fatiha, or when in ruku one has not recited the takbir when going to ruku. Or when in the sujud the doubt that one has not done a sujud before it i.e. whether one or two is done.

A: If these doubts persist then ignore it. For example if when reciting the additional surat one doubts whether one recited surah faatiha or not then ignore this doubt and consider surah faatiha recited. By doing this a few times the doubts will dissapear insha allah.
