Question:If after performing my namaz maghrib , I saw that we can see me through the window glass.

But the glass, was not in front of me but on the side.

My namaz magrib still valid? I just covered the glass and continue with Isha

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Your prayer is valid
Question:I have one big problem. When I pray, I always doubt if I passed gas or no. Sometimes its doubts and sometimes its true. Or just I don’t know if its really gas or no.
So, everyday for each namaz, I repeat lt about 5 times. Because my conscience is not clear. I am always thinking that and If its really gas, and I just not try to repeat my namaz before its kaza, what I will say to Allah(swt).

I have been through this for few years already.
This problem affect my imaan seriously , I feel more and more depressed. Because of this, I am scared to lose hope in Allah (swt)

I still making duas everyday, I seek help from the Ahlul Bayt (as), I do isteghfar.
But I dont know what happen to me.
I do so many duas like yastashir, zyarat e ashura, duas e makaremlul aklaqh, to change my self and to become a pious person with a pure heart.

But I am just thinking that, How I can be religious if I can’t pray salat properly? Because, after my prayers , I am never satisfied. So can you imagine how I feel everyday? I Just leave my mussalo with a heart broken. Most of the time I cry after namaz.

And its not normal, because namaz is here to relax us, and for me when I am in my mussalo I just start to stress..
I already did a treatment with doctors but still the same.

Is it the fact that Allah(swt) don’t Want to Hear my voice, because I have so many gunnah?
Do you have something that can help me? Please

What is the fiqh law for this kind of situation please? For example, if its an illness ? Am I kacirul shank, so I have to ignore doubts


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes you have many doubts about this issue so you should ignore your doubts regarding this issue.
Question:Some things happened to me and I really dont know if it makes my namaz baatil or no.

1) If I am about to do my massa of feet, and then my wet hands touched one part of my foot(below toes), and after that I made massa from my toes.
Its still okay?

2) When I am performing sajda during prayer, and my hands slides, its still valid?

3) Also, If during sajda, my both feet are not aligned makes my sajda batil? Like one is behind another
And do I have the right to move to do it correctly?

4) If I move intentionally my hands or my feets while performing sajda makes my namaz baatil?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1. Its fine
2. Yes its fine but stay motionless while reciting the dhikr
3. Same as number 2
4. Its fine but stay motionless while reciting the dhikr
Question:Is it ok if I recite the namaz whispering loudly to be more concentrated?
Like if someone is next me he can hear me but he can't hear the grain of my voice
the sound of my voice does not come out but I whisper loudly

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Whispering loudly would not be whispering.
Whispering is low
