How can this person overcome these wasawas, please advise?

Q: My question is if someone is going through wasawas so much that he repeats all five salat after Isha thinking none of them is correct and his life is becoming so difficult that every salat is taken as big test.

The person suffering from waswas should make intention to complete the act of worship or it’s precursor (wudu), and then go through the actions once only, make du’a for acceptance and then move on. Acts should not be repeated, as that is from the shayatin who wishes to make life difficult for the believers. So make intention, do it once, make du’a, move on and don’t think back, and definitely don’t repeat.
