    Re: Mental Health & Awareness

    hey friends,

    welcome to this forum site....
    There are so many myths and misconceptions too and that leads to people not understanding they're at risk or that they have a problem or that someone can help them with it. And one of the biggest things is people who don't have mental health problems having this attitude that it won't affect them so they don't need to bother to find out about it

      Our sisters are more vulnerable to mental problems and hence there is a greater need for such care.Talking out to psychologists do help to a great extent to free burdens on the mind. Our administrators must think seriously in terms of forming lady psychologists attached to our Masjids.

        I'm glad this issue has been discussed.. There's far too many Muslims who are suffering in silence with no one to turn to.. Allah swt is the ultimate cure but we need to change ourselves to be closer to our deen and that does require help and support especially if we aren't praciticing. I'm more than happy to check out the blog.. Mashalallah it's a great initiative.. Inshallah we can help our brothers and sisters out instead of condemning and labelling from society.

          The mind and body are complex and interconnected. We can no longer state clearly where the mind ends and the body begins. Many severe mental illnesses have a clear biological component, and genetic factors have been implicated in some disorders.

            Assalaamu-alaikum All,

            How are you? I pray you and you're family are well, insha'Allah.

            I've read many of these posts and we have many views which many are similar in different angles. There are mental issues in Islam. First and foremost we are human beings and not robots or a special breed of creation. Many humans come to Islam fortunately and unfortunately many go away from it. Yet we all feel and have mental issues at some poitn in our lives, right? Everyone has a feeling of being down or 'depressed' and times of high energy and happiness. Yet we prod along with life. Right?

            Unfortunately, many feel these emotions to a higher, deeper and longer state of mind allowing these feelings to initmately influence their daily lives in their jobs, work, relationships etc. Thsi is what we see as real and major mental issues. It is NOT unfortunately by some, seen as works of Jinns and evil eye etc. They are NOT possessed, mad nor insane. They simply have these isseus and need support by those who are culturally and socially aware, experienced and trained. Having members from our community who say the former that one is possessed or mad or just needs some tablets in simply 'brushing it under the carpet'. We have potential as do these many muslims. By dealing with these issues, they will be in a position to achieve their potential.

            The mind is made up of two aspects: conscious (CM)- like what we want to eat and wear on a certain day, and unconscious (UM)- like our name, number family etc. Our CM takes in approx 135 bits of information. Our UM takes in approx 2million bits of information, like how we're sitting on the chair and that our toe is touching the inside of our shoe. Etc. Right?

              The body and the mind have a connection. The body, when it gets ill, is the UM telling the individual via the CM that what one is doing in their daily life either at work or in their relationship is NOT right and needs to be changed. One continues to do and voercomes the minor illnessess over time and finds that they are now a patient of major illnessess - as a result of not listening.

                as someone who has suffered mental health issues before and after reversion all i can say is its a society problem rather than an ummah problem.

                I have been written off as exaggerating, oh you look fine. Even worse - 'you are so bubbly - no one would know there was anything wrong with you'. It hurts cos i am actually strong in that i will cover it up.

                My mum understands as she has suffered issues too. Unless someone has had direct contact with a sufferer/trained in it or suffered from it then theres just a lack of awareness.

                  I have been diagnosed with various mental illnesses as a child. I was diagnosed with ADHD at 2 years old and put on Ritalin. Turns out I did not have ADHD, I "had" ADD. I was in speech therapy from I guess K-9th grade when I got expelled in November 2002 at 15. I was in Physical and Occupational therapy due to being born at 24.5 weeks old from Head Start to mid 6th grade when mom pulled me out. At 14 during my first stay in the mental hospital I was diganosed with Depression, Schizo-phrenic tendancies, mainc depression, bipolar disorder. At 15 during my second stay in another mental hospital I was diagnosed with Depression, Bi-Polar, PTSD. My mother's husband made sure I knew they could lock me up in the mental ward until I was 21. At 15 I had no choice. It was eithesr go to foster care at 15 where I would have been abused/raped, or get into a mental hospital within 24 hours or I would be in jail at 15. I chose the mental hospital so we had to hurry up and get me into one or else I'd still be in jail right now if that had not happened about me getting into a mental hospital. My school counselor last summer I think said that she thinks I have PTSD. I tried "therapy" at 14. All the shrink wanted to do was put me on drugs. And the therapist didn't listen to me at all. I survive if you will by pushing everything bad that's happened in my life at the hands of mom's ex-husband to the back of my mind and don't think about it and I do my best not to think of almost being seuxlaly molested at 11 by my babysitter's younger brother. As far as everyone in my family is concerned, I deserve to be locked up in the mental ward forever. I do not think that there is enough compassion for people who suffer from mental illness. The "Muslims" just want to believe you're being targted by "Jinn" when mental illness is a real disease. It's not something "Supernatural".

                      Re: Mental Health & Awareness

                      Dear Brothers, I am raising money for a very important charity IDCI. To summarise, what they actually do is to publish Islamic text and send to both Muslims and Non Muslims. They have printed millions of publications and are in need of more funding so that they can spread the word of Islam. Dear brothers it is the duty of every Muslim to follow the efforts of Prophet Muhammad pbuh and also what can be better than doing this good deed in the month of Ramadan. So i humbly request my brothers to donate and also ask friends and family to donate to: https://www.justgiving.com/adil-elahi All money goes straight to IDCI as you will see on the website. May Allah accept our efforts and assist us in assisting the Ummah of the Prophet. Jazakullah

                        dhak1yya, I agree with you and everyone else. Muslims do not live in a vacuum. It affects the rest of the world and so, of course, it affects us as well. It cannot be addressed until we accept that it is real and nothing to be ashamed of. I checked out your blog. You should do more with it!

                          Re: Mental Health & Awareness

                          Hello, my name is James Cummings and I have for the past 4 years suffered greatly with vicious voices in my head. Please let me explain. I was good friends with a muslim raised man who befriended me at university and we were very close by the end of the final year. I was then asked to come round to his house and meet his brother and family, who smoked a lot of weed. When sitting in their shack at the bottom of the garden my mind started to hear things, and before you knew it I couldn't communicate through the physical plain. As time wore on my mind and body became aware that things didnt come right, and for some reason I feel as though these 2 boys have left their evil 'Jins' with me and taken my own spirit who I loved dearly and who loved me. I don't know much about islam apart from some teachings, and I had several things thrown at me such as the Iblas (devil?) etc and all I do every day is hear their voices from which ever plain they come from and see their twisted smiles in my mind. I even saw some of my spirits move from myself to my 'friends' brother and he sent his my bodies way. I also saw various dreams in which they attacked my family and friends and suffice to say within days of these dreams, everybody stopped looking at me in the same way, and haven't done so since. These 2 'friends' are extremely strong spiritually and taught me of allah, but I know they have also put other spirits upon me as I hear their voices. These are realisations that I have made over time and I have not been the same ever since this happened to me. I have lost my strength, my own will and good nature and have been left with their vicious dealings. I am even aware that I was put under a state whilst in their house which I couldnt get out of and dreams that I remember them telling me about under this state have since come too, but because they put me in this state I havent been able to move forward on my spiritual path in the past four years due to their jions holding me back. If anybody knows anything about this and the dark powers and how to get rid of these forces I would be glad of knowledge and wisdom. I have took to praying to Allah 5 times a day in hope that he would hear my prayers but unfortunately they just seem to fall on deaf ears. I am not sure how much more I can physically take as I see my whole life dying out, and I feel they are using my own spirit for their own gain. Please help brothers and sisters as I asm at breaking point. Peace be with you all.

                            I have also since met spiritual people on my journey who have since told me that Nord and Morad are my lords and that my spirit whithers to their pan. I realise we are all one but they seem to have married me in theri light. I just want to be myself again as allah saw fit, and be able to be on my own path again, as opposed to what they set me. I no longer have sun and no longer feel one. Once I reach what the voices say along with my own, terrible things happen, I have been beaten up, crashed my car hundreds of times and my whole life is falling apart. I can no longer love and feel dead inside. the moment I feel good in spirit, it drains away and I see morad and nord fill up in the spiritual plain. Please please help, as I feel they have married our souls over time. I wish I had listened to my spirit telling me not to go, but as I say they were so strong that they took control of my life and made things happen in meditation if I didnt go along. Such as things happening to my own family. I know somebody can help, so please do.

                              Dear Muslim community. For some reason I have already felt relief, as I feel that some of you may have already prayed for me already, however, I still feel them close. I know some may see this as me being weak or even have gone mad, but I swear that this has happened to me and is still part of me. I pray that as spiritual beings you can help, and that I shall in return pray for you all that helped me, even if I cannot help you in the physical, I shall send you blessing through spiritual. Peace be with you. james
