Saalams Everyone,

 

Sorry this a odd question. I have a question had this happend to anyone else and is this normal. So it's day 6 of going to the mosque for attending Muharram lectures. Everytime I go I can't t focus as I'm flooded in thoughts from being a teenager up until now as a adult at age 24. I tend to zone out and all of sudden I start listening to the lecture.

By the end of the lecture/when it's time to go home my head is fried as I'm thinking about a lot and this happens at home too.

Has this had happened to anyone else if so how can I overcome such issue 

 

Thank You!

Take a pen and a writing block with you so you can take some notes during the lecture. This will keep you focused and help you to remember what was discussed inshaAllah. 

Thank you the issue is I don't understand what is being said so I can't take notes

Salaam. As your thoughts wander, eventually they will wander over to Imam Hussain (عليه السلام), his message and what it means to you, etc.

Keep attending the lectures brother.

If you can’t understand what’s being said, listen to a lecture online in a language you can understand. There is no point sitting thru a majlis for 1-2 hours if you don’t get anything out of it and are spacing out. On the other hand many of us space out even if it’s a language we understand, esp if the speaker doesn’t deliver a focused lecture.

Why is it a language issue or the lectures are very complex ?

I think this may be why your thoughts drift. If I listened to a podcast in Russian or to a calculus 3 lecture of course my thoughts will drift and I wouldn't blame myself.

I would try to get to a majlis that you can understand. If you can't, then good on you for showing up. You're better than the people who do understand but still don't come, and I hope Allah rewards you for your efforts.

As guest running water said.

When you don't understand something it's only natural to "zone out" into your own thoughts.
