Doubts in salaah


1. If I make intention of namaaz aloud then I feel that it is not right so I make the intention aloud again. This causes uneasiness. What should I do?

2. In every namaaz I get a doubts of what rakaat it is. I just begin salaah and I start getting doubts. So should I sit for tashahud in all the rakaats and make sajda sahw?

3. Often I get doubts of whether it is 1st sajdah or 2nd sajdah. What must I do?

4. I have doubts whether I said the takbeer tahreema, takbeer, tashahud, durood Ebrahim etc. properly or maybe missed it out.


1. Once in the mind is sufficient.

2 - 4. Employ your discretion and base your decision on your dominant thought.

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