My whole house is filthy and I can’t pray or go to the bathroom?


Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

Don’t worry about it. Your house isn’t all filthy. Allah is merciful and His religion isn’t that hard.

Have a read of these articles, and if you are still stuck ask to see your school counselor.

You can tell them you are worried about everything being filthy even though you spoke to an imam and he said that you shouldn’t think like that. They should be able to help you.

I pray this helps.
