Suffering from Suspicions; Please Advise!

23 September, 2023
Q I suffer a great deal from suspicions. I've tried again and again to put my trust in Allah but after some time something triggers the same suspicious behavior in me. Due to this I'm spying on my sister and my peace has been destroyed. Even though I've done all I could, I'm still scared that one person will harm us. I've been assured in the past that that person will not contact us again but I can't seem to trust anyone. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm suffering at the hands of this problem on daily basis. Please help me in this regard. I will be forever grateful. Jazakallah!


Has anything triggered your suspicious behavior? Did anything harmful happen to your sister that made you feel scared and worried about her?

If yes, you may suffer from PTSD, so the best thing to do is to go to a doctor and get assessed.

If you are always anxious and can’t stop spying and thinking about other things, you need to see a therapist and find a solution.

What intensifies these triggers? Find out here.
