Question ID: 24983

Assalamualykum Respected Mufti,

I am worried that I may have committed shirk unknowingly. I was praying and during the prayer when I made sujood my head was against the wall a little bit. I got strange thoughts that said I should pray as if the wall i am touching is Allah (Naoodhoobillah). So then I accepted those thoughts for the sajda and my focus was on the wall whilst in sujood. After the sujood to the sitting position I realized that I may have committed shirk. I cannot remember however if I discarded the thoughts about the wall during the sajda. I said shahada after and did ghusl because I was worried. Please respected mufti tell me what I should do now because I am worried that I may be out of Islam.

Jazak Allah

You must be more careful.

However you are not out of the fold of Islaam.

We are fortunate, in Shariat, one is not accountable for stray, horrible, weird or bad thoughts.
