If a person praying experiences
insinuating thoughts from Shaitan
(Satan) in his salaat, causing him
problems in reciting Quran, and
resulting in bad or evil thoughts,
and making him doubt the number
of completed rakaat (iterations),
what should he do?


This happened to one of the
companions of the prophet
(sahabah) whose name is Uthman
Bin Abi Al-Aas, (may Allah be
pleased with him), so he came
complaining to the Prophet (peace
be upon him), and he said: "The
Shaitan comes between me and my
salat and causes me problems with
my recitation." So the Messenger of
Allah, (peace be upon him), said:
"That is a shaitan called Khanzab,
so if you feel his presence, seek
refuge in Allah and blow a mist to
your left three times." He said: "I
applied this advice and Allah has rid
me off him." 1 This hadith includes
two ways to get rid off the shaitan
of salat. The first is asking refuge in
Allah from the shaitan's evil by
pronouncing the words of seeking
refuge and this is OK in this case.
And the second: blowing with mist
to the left three times. This is
basically blowing air in a similar
manner to spitting, but with a
minute mist of saliva, on the
condition that this does not disturb
or bother the person next to him,
nor make the masjid dirty.
From the book What Should You Do
in the Following Situations... ?
1 Sahih Muslim 2203.
