السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
I wanted to ask a couple of questions on behalf of someone i know.
A bit of background- the sister says she has a ruqya issue, for about it for 3 years or so now. She has been told its sihr and hasad. Perhaps the sihr has now gone, but something still remains. الله اعلم
she is concerned about her salah, as sometimes it becomes apparent whilst she is praying.
– there are times where she laughs out loud in salah. she don’t lose consciousness, she is totally aware and yet she cannot control it. she is not laughing at a joke or anything.
– Sometimes she get an intense pain and she cries out
– Sometimes she loses control of limbs momentarily. So she may fall over. Its usually just a moment and then she can get up, or she prays sitting down.
– it doesn’t happen so much now but she has had occasions where she is following the Imam, she is awake but she is not totally there.
My question is whether those salah are valid. Should she be making wudu again if she laughs etc.
And if its not valid, should she be making up all the salah this may have affected? she hasn’t kept a record, so she would have to guess.

Sanity is defined as the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner; sound mental health.
In the case where she was sane and happened to do such an act which invalidates Ṣalāh, then those Ṣalāhs will have to be repeated.
If at any point she was not sane for an entire Ṣalāh time, then such Ṣalāhs would not be binding on her; hence, she will not have to make up for them.
