Solution for evil thoughts

Q: I get a lot of evil thoughts about people and I really dislike it (for example when I see someone who is fat then I'll think that they so fat etc), please can mufti saheb tell me how to stop these evil thoughts from coming?

A: Make yourself understand that Allah Ta`ala has not made you answerable for them, and if you are going to have evil thoughts it is not going to bring you any thawaab but definitely it can land you into serious problems in this world and the next. Keep thinking along these lines and ask Allah Ta`ala for His special help, assistance and protection. May Allah help you.

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