doubt about having urine


Assalamu alaikum

I always have doubt about having urine on my clothes anytime I remember solah that I now have to use the toilet and spend a lot of time before praying. Anytime I come out of the toilet I always feel like there is urine on my body. The school I am our lectures is mostly during solah so if I go out of class to pray I always waste time by urinating and then cleaning my self before solah this makes me miss a lot of class lectures

In a case I wore socks inside the toilet to perform urinate and perform ablution. While performing the ablution I felt like there is urine on the socks so I removed it when about to wash my feet, when I am done I took the socks from the toilet and left it on the table and I used that same hand to hold the clothe I want to use to pray after my solah I had doubts so I removed the entire clothe I wore and rinse them in water including the sajadah I used to pray and repray the solah. 

In another case my finger grazed a sock which I think there is urine on I use the same finger to hold another socks which I want to use for solah and I prayed like that now I’m having doubt about my purity so I once rinse all the places I think would be affected

My question is do I have to repray this solah

And if I don’t repray due to me thinking I’m pure and I’m not am my sining

How can I overcome this waswas its getting too much for me that I have to be rinsing my clothes all the time 


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

It seems that the Shaytan attempts to drive you away from prayers and being committed with your other religious duties. It needs resolute resistance from you and better understanding of how to deal with it. First, whatever you have mentioned does not justify for you to quit completing your wudu or your prayers. Narrated Abu Hurairah:

Allah’s Messenger said: “If one of you feels disturbance in his stomach and doubts whether he has released some wind or not, then he should not leave the mosque unless he hears its sound or smells (its) odor”. [Muslim]

 Scholars elicited a very significant legal maxim basing themselves on this hadith. It says, “Certainty is not Overruled by Doubt”

For example, the case explained by this hadith, i.e. when one doubts about breaking of his ablution after certainly of performing it, scholars maintained that doubt has to be overridden and one may offer prayer without renewing his ablution.

Ibn Daqiq maintains that the manifest meaning of this hadith is, however, to continue the validity of ablution and overlooking doubt (Ibn Dqiq 122).

Similarly, if one has doubts during the course of the ablution that one has washed a particular limb or the head, then it is obligatory to wash it again and everything that follows it in the ablution since it is presumed that one has not washed that limb until it changes by it being washed for certain.

On the other hand, if these doubts arise after one has finished ablution, one need not repeat anything, because it is presumed that he already made ablution perfectly and doubts would not have any effect.

So, in conclusion, the most effective way of treating this wiswas is to ignore it completely. When such doubt enters your mind, block it out and ignore it. Engage yourself with adhkar and recite ruqya regularly by reciting the last three surahs of the Quran in your palms and wipe them to the whole of your body. Also try to recite Surat Al-Baraqh regularly. Abu Umamah said he heard Allah’s Messenger say: Recite the Quran, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, al-Baqara and Surah Al ‘Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqarah, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Muawiyah said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.) (Muslim)

Almighty Allah Knows best.
