when i do acts of worship i get this feeling of riya.especially when i do wudu and salah. Does riya invalidate the whole act of worship or just nullifies the reward? pls answer also its very hard to repeat wudu and salah non stop


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

This feeling is nothing but mere whispers. You have to ignore this feeling and not care about it or pay attention to it.

Perform ablution and then pray only once, and do not redo any of your acts of worship no matter how much whispers you had. Be confident and certain that your acts of worship are valid and accepted, as these thoughts and illusions do not affect their validity.

Allah knows best.
