Uncertain of shirk and kufr

Question ID: 27726

I have constant thoughts that i have become a kafir or have committed shirk. Please tell me if this is shirk. After namaz i was making dua to Allah (subhana wa ta’la) and some light was coming through the window so when i closed my eyes i could see a little brightness. For a moment i had strange thoughts come into my mind like the light or from Allah (subhana wa ta’la). Now i think i committed shirk.

My second question is that if i committed shirk before or kufr, I have to take the shahada again. Is it neccessary to do ghusl as well or will sayaing the shahada suffice. Jazak Allah.

These are whispers of the open enemy Satan. Keep reading 'La Hawla wa la Quwata.....'  in abundance.
Increase Quraan Tilaawat and Durood recitation.
You have not left the fold of Islaam.
