Whispering in Prayer
Question:

My problem is that when I enter the mosque and face the Qiblah, then make the opening Takbir, I go back (in my mind) and become unsure whether I have made the opening Takbir or not, then I repeat the Takbir and after that, I recite Al-Fatihah and I forget and repeat its recitation again, especially when I am with the Imam. Is my prayer in this situation correct? And what should I do so that I can avoid this forgetfulness? Inform me, and may Allah reward you.
Answer:

Prayer in the situation you have mentioned is correct, but you must beware of the whispering (of Satan) by approaching Allah while keeping in mind Allahıs Magnificence when you start praying, and set your heart on this, while seeking protection with Allah from the accursed Satan, and in this way you will remove the whispering, Allah willing and you will oppose Satan and please your Lord, the Most Glorified.
