BismilLahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Let’s note that most of our problems in life such as depression is due to our disobedience to Allah. Some of us claim to love Allah but by mouth not by action. One of the means to resolve all that is sincere Tau’bah (Repentance): The heart, brain, soul, body etc cannot find peace of mind if we don’t obey the rules of its CREATOR, ALLAH.
Depression is caused by displeasing Almighty Allah. When a person transgresses the Laws of Allah, he/she is inflicted with various types of harms such as depression. It is for this reason we are taught in Islam that Who ever makes Istighfaar in abundance and sincerely, Allah will make a way out for him from every difficulty, free him from depression and anxiety and Allah will grant him sustenance from avenues he will not imagine.
“Why should Allah punish you if you have thanked (Him) and have believed in Him. And Allah is Ever All Appreciative (of good), All Knowing.” [An-Nisa 147].
Therefore, the depressed person should repent for the past and present sins and turn his/her attention to Allah. Focus on pleasing Allah by fulfilling all His commands and Allah will grant you ease, peace and satisfaction of the heart, mind and soul. In the Zikr of Allah we will acquire complete tranquility and peace. Allah is the controller of all situations. If a person is in any difficulty, Allah is the only power that would assist him in coming out of that difficulty. Therefore, turn to Allah and He will take care of all your problems and misfortunes. Don’t go to pastors, fortune tellers etc. They are agents of Satan through evil jinns to deviate our eemaan in Allah. To be continued in shaa Allaah. We ask Allah to aid us and protect us from any satanic influences. Aameen.
