Shortened Question:

Seeing the number 333 or 111.


Asalamu alaykum. Hello, I am very confused, worried and losing faith. Everytime I look at the clock or at a receipt or something I keep seeing the number 333. Like 3.33pm for example. Or 111. Is this something to do with the Trinity or something? I keep seeing these numbers everyday. Please tell me why this is happening and how can I get my faith back please. Please reply.

Jazzak Allah khairan.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The fact that you fear losing your faith by thinking of the trinity is a sign of your Iman. You believe in the Oneness of Allah and the sight of 3’s and 1’s is of concern to you. Nevertheless, the sight of 3’s and 1’s are not a matter of concern.

Ignore such thoughts and recite:

ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله  


“La hawla wala quwata illa billah”


There is no might and no power except with Allah.

We advise you to focus on your religion. Make Tilawat of your Quran regularly. Read Surah Yasiin in the mornings and also after the Maghrib Salat. Try as much as possible to perform Salat with Jamaat. Make a lot of Zikr. Insha Allah, this will help to restore your self-confidence, and strengthen your Īman.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
