What is doubt and obsession?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Abdullah ibn Sinan who said: I talked with Imam Sadeq (AS) about a man who was affected with obsession in performing Wudhu and Salaat and said: He is a wise man. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: What kind of wisdom is this whilst he is following Satan? I said: How does he follow Satan? Imam Sadeq (AS) replied: Ask him what is the cause of his doubt and obsession? Then, he will say: It is due to Satan [1]. Doubt and obsession, instability, polytheism (Shirk) and things like them are satanic dangers and Iblis’s inspirations in people’s hearts. On the other hand tranquillity, certainty, stability, sincerity and thing like these are Divine Blessings and inspirations.
