Assalamualikum brothers and sisters.
I am a 16 year old teenager, a muslim. My name is Ikqaf.
I wanted to post a few questions that has been playing on my mind all this while.
1) I always feel an internal voice in me that always encourages me do bad stuffs and it will make me think badly of others. I always tried to ignore it but it is always there!!!
So is it my nafs or is it syaitan?? How do i get rid of it!!
2) I always listen to music. Is it haram?
3) How do i concentrate on my prayers because everytime when i perform prayers, i am physically doing it but my mind wanders off elsewhere!! Help!
4) I am interested in learning about islam but where do i start? Start the Al-Quran, Hadith or other kitabs first? Is there like a structured way to learn islam?
This is all the questions that i wanted to ask for now. So please help me and guide me. Thank you for your time and sorry if i have caused inconvenience.
