    I've got a serious problem of being lazy. My room and bathroom are a mess because I've been too lazy to clean up. Further, I've missed many prayers because I was too lazy to do wudu or even pray salaat.


    How can I cure being lazy?
    5 tips on How to Stop making Excuses:

    1. It all starts with recognizing that your Muslim and it’s an obligation for you to pray. If you miss your prayer make it up, that’s better than not praying at all.

    2. Revolve your schedule around prayer and not the other way around! Salat is a shield against sin, and we are all witnesses to that.

    3. Plan accordingly. If you live near a masjid, go to the masjid and offer Salat with congregation . If you're at work, figure out the Qibla and pick a corner.

    4. It takes 5-10 minutes to pray, depending on your speed. That’s nothing, don’t be fooled into thinking Salat is a big physical workout, if you can hit the gym for an hour then yea. It’s actually a spiritual workout and it is tough, but without sincere effort and consistency, you won’t see any progress.

    5. Reflect on repeated reminders from the Qur’an and Sunnah, “Indeed he will be successful the one who purifies himself. And remembers the Name of his Rabb (Allah), and prays.” (87:14-15)

    There you have it, now go play. I mean pray.

    like he above me said, gym or exercise.
    make something shocking, recieve pain"but do not harm yourself" watch dead people on the internet or drink something really strong "vinegar" in a big dose.
    any of those will awaken your lazy mind

    I had a similar problem of laziness a few years ago and the best cure is trying to be active as much as possible, anti-depressants and medications don't help, in fact they can make you feel worse.

    Join a gym, go 2-3 times a week, if thats too much go for regular walks, basically healthy body healthy mind, socialise more with your family and friends and people who will encourage you to be more active and last but not least PRAY salah on time, I must admit I struggle with Fajr in the summer but we MUST read salah properly to gain allah's (swt) help, ask him for help and he will not turn you away :) .

    Also talk about the reasons why you're feeling depressed to a family member or friend who will inshallah motivate you to get away from this vicious cycle.

    Good Luck!!

    I see...

    Then perhaps there is a lot more to your case then I originally thought.

    I apologise if I caused offence bro...

    I'm not sure who prescribed you with this or why you've been prescribed it... Although I imagine medication for depression isn't good and only creates a new dependency in your lifestyle... Are you sure you'll be able to withdraw from this medication once you felt its done its job?

    i had the exact same problem... when my room was messy i didnt feel motived to pray and now its tidy im prayin 5 times a day. I would just make that extra effort to tidy up and then when it starts to get a litle messy keep putin things away even if you dont want too. the more you force your self the more natural it wil become then it should stay tidy and inshallah ull be praying

    Be more active.



    Draw, write poetry, go out for a walk, hit the gym, learn to cook, read a book, write a story, write a play or film or something.
