Dua for protection from bad thoughts

Q: Is there any surah/dua that can be recited for protection from all haraam deeds, words and thoughts? I feel like I am insane since I get bad thoughts which I am not supposed to think about.

A: The actual way to get your correction is determination and consulting regularly with some person who is acquainted with these types of problems. However, as a support you should recite the mu`awwizatain. Just as how a person doing business will make the effort of opening his shop etc. and as a support he will engage in dua etc.

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