    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

        If Islam doesn't keep you mentally balanced, you're doing something wrong.

          Some people are born with a mental imbalance though.

            Are you referring to those for whom the pen has been lifted?

              I'm not sure.

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

                    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?

                          Treatment usually involves developing 'life skills' as well as the medication.

                            I think we're misunderstanding each other. It's possible to be insane for a period of time then become sane again, agreed?

                            The pen is lifted for them for the time they're insane and if they recover they're held accountable again.

                              I'm not sure about that. Like I said, I wasn't aware of this category.

                                "Based on the above discussion on the definition of accountability from an Islamic point of view, what makes a person qualified to be accountable, and what is expected of him, and based on what we have discussed about the nature of this illness and its symptoms and impact, we think that the person who is affected by it does not meet the conditions of accountability, especially in the chronic, later stages of the illness. However, when he is in a phase in which he has self-awareness and is able to control his actions and his thinking, he is accountable and must comply with the commands and prohibitions of Allah."
