Thinking About the Salah in Hajj Whether I Prayed It Correctly or Not

CategoriesSalaah [790]

Answered by: Maulana Abdul Muktader




I have a habit of overthinking and feeling stressed. During the Hajj days in our tent, there was a discussion regarding which Salah to read. We stayed in Makkah for 14 days (this was also the intention that I had) and praying Qasar when alone. However, most people from my group were saying no we should read full salah only. This caused me to overthink and blame myself if I did anything wrong. Later it was clarified that reading qasar was correct


My question is as I was confused and constantly overthinking about salah during 10-12 Zil Haj…

1.Will this effect any arkans of Hajj such as Tawaf-e-ziyarah and stoning of the devil?

2. Will any wrong Salah or confusion effect Hajj?

No, there will be no effect on any of your worship as these were merely thoughts.

إن الله تعالى تجاوز عن أمتي ما وسوست به صدورها ما لم تعمل به أو تتكلم

Indeed Allah forgives my nation of that which the hearts whisper as long as they don’t act upon or utter it.
