Why I’m talking to myself when I'm alone?


I have a question: why I'm talking to myself when I'm alone, and come up with unnecessary, unrealistic things and lead a dialogue with my thoughts. Some people say it is a habit I want to learn more about it, and what Islam tells us about such habit? What is it?



Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

 Your question is unclear and I’m not sure what thoughts you are referring to exactly. However, from your question, I gather that this is either a natural habit of yours or a psychological problem rather than a religious problem. So you should speak to a psychologist for more information on this issue.

 Nevertheless, engaging in the Zikr of Allah will help the situation and will grant you contentment. Whenever you are plagued with these thoughts, recite (أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ ) “A’oozu Billahi Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem” and (آمَنْتُ بِاللهِ وَرُسُلِهِ) “Aamantu Billahi Wa Rusulih”.

 And Allah Knows Best.


Mufti Suhail Tarmahomed
