Stray thoughts

Q: I am struggling with OCD which creates negative thoughts and waswasa in my mind so I feel very bad. I feel sadness anxiety, stress, depression, angerness and too much fear with this. What can I do now? I am hopless. I can't find any way. Shaytaan always puts waswasa in my mind. If you do this it will happen like this, so i am confused, afraid and fearful with this thoughts. Its ruined my peace of mind please advice me.

A: Do not pay attention to these thoughts. These stray thoughts will not cause you to become sinful as it is not within your volition. Recite Durood Shareef in abundance and take out some time in the mornings and evenings to recite Fazaail-e-Aamaal and Fazaail-e-Sadaqaat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
