Help Me Deal with My Inappropriate Thoughts!



Reply Date

Mar 26, 2018


For the past few weeks, I've been having inappropriate thoughts about family, but it wasn't too bad until about a week ago. For a week, I've been getting sexually abusive thoughts about children, family, and the same sex. It's like I can physically feel myself forcing myself to think these thoughts. If I try to repel them away, they get worse and I get extreme anxiety. It's gotten to the point where I sit in the class and have a lot of anxiety and can't focus. I don't want professional help from medicine or therapist because I believe Islam has the cure for everything. What do you think I should do. Please help me. Thank you.
