    Therefore not excused.

    I wasn't actually aware that there is a 'category' of people for whom the pen is lifted only at certain times.

    On what grounds are they not excused?

    Schizophrenia for example would be considered insanity but with meds the psychosis becomes manageable and they regain their senses.

    Islam doesn't ignore it but some Muslims don't even acknowledge it, they say things like it's all in your mind or you've got weak Iman

    Ayn and sihr also can play a part in it too

    ruqyah is the way to help but doing ruqyah whilst suffering from mental illnesses can be difficult

    Alhamdullilah, that is correct though, some symptoms are caused by 'ayn and/or sihr may and they present similar to a mental health illness OR be the cause of a mental health issue.

    This isn't always the case however and it may just be a medical issue with no clear aetiology/or with a definite cause.

    We should't disregard the fact that alot of problems and issues today are as a result of 'ayn. If that is the case then ruqyah is necessary and the best form of ruqyah is the one from yourself.

    And Allah knows best.

    Mental health AND neurological conditions that some individuals mail fail to recognise include, Bipolar disorders, Schizophrenia, OCD, ADHD etc. Just to name a few.

    We aren't disregarding the fact that our communities are certainly more enlightened and aware of mental health issues, we have made alot of progress, however, we are not where we want to be, yet.

    Are you talking about undiagnosed illnesses?

    Remember we aren't all doctors, an invisible mental illness should be diagnosed by doctors instead of joe bloggs.
    No, Im not talking about undiagnosed mental health issues. You are losing the point of my post.

    This isn't about diagnosis vs un-diagnosis.
