I have recently been diagnosed with having OCD by a qualified psychiatrist. For 12+ years, my obsessions used to health related where I used to worry about contracting cancer and going to Drs and having tests. Now in addition to this, especially after being more practicing and reading many fatwas regarding disbelief, annulment of nikah & divorce, I have almost constant unintentional thoughts about kufr & divorce. I keep remembering sins from the past which I had completely forgotten about & worry whether they constitute disbelieve & the state of nikah.
1. If I say some words to my wife (a metaphor or not) & immediately as an afterthought, I get an unintentional thought that pops up saying “what I said just now, meant as a divorce”, will that count as a divorce?
2. Do explicit or implicit divorces of people with OCD count if they are not totally in control of thoughts?
3. I have read that to avoid giving divorce because of waswasa, I can state to 2 witnesses that I do not intend divorce and if I do its because of illness. Is this a sharia acceptable process?
4. How to differentiate between intention and waswasa?
I follow hanafi fiqh.
