    Re: What do you do when you feel sad?

    Yea I knew someone would pick up on the music thing. It helps me a lot.

    Generally everyday I read Quran/Prayer/Dua > BUT not when I am sad, because when I am sad > I need to do other things and reflect (Whilst always thinking/reflecting I am actively consulting and chatting to Allah or just engaged in that activity). It's much more important to me. I think it's a lot more interpersonal than say reading the Quran.

    Also.....when I'm really really conflicted. I tend to cook a feast in throughout the night. There's something peaceful about being alone, engaged in a mighty task but making sure I'm really really quite. Like making a master piece. I enjoy this a lot. lol

      I'm actually pretty sad myself and have been in the state of inertia for quite some time now so InshaAllah I hope this thread will help me as well.

      Hurm... I usually listen to Qur'an recitations whenever I feel down. I don't know why but I really like this one particular recitation and I've been listening to it a lot, it's already stuck in my head now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cT-jmK2GWs

      I also make a compilation of some short lectures on my mp3, most of them are on the topics about Imaan, Jannah, being patient, anything that lift up and boost my imaan... Then I would just lie down on my bed and play them over and over again.

      I also work out. It clears my mind and then I would just forget about what I think earlier. Man... how those workout instructors move and talk at the same time, I would never know! I can barely workout AND think at the same time

      Changing the environment also helps a lot. Go out, take long walks, see the nature. InshaAllah it will at least do a little change.

              Re: What do you do when you feel sad?

              Jigsaw, with all due respect your post has so many wrongs. But each to their own and I hope the OP will only take the good out of it.

              OP, a lot of people say make dua, and majority of the time, we just brush it aside. But when you're making dua you're acknowledging the fact, that you are in need of Him, no matter how high you think of yourself, how much swag you have, compared to Allah swt you are nothing, and you are constantly in need of Him. You can go to the park for a walk, eat, read, workout do whatever, but ultimatly, without the help of Allah swt you will not get far.

              Allah swt mentions in the Quran in reference to Musa and his brother.


              Allah swt knew the affairs of Moosa and Haroon, he knew the affairs of Firawn, of Yaqoob, of Ayoob, and He knows your affairs, He wouldn't be Allah swt if He didn't. If we understand this concept in it's true meaning then when we feel sad we shouldn't turn to anyone but Him, ask nobody but Him, confide in nobody but Him, honestly, you will never find true peace unless it's with Him.

              Times of sadness are made for dua and calling Allah swt, speaking to Him.


              This ayah explicity tells us what we need to do when in distress, we need to call Him and ask Him to take care of our affairs.

              Finally, when things aren't going your way, then just remember that things could be much much worse. And if something that you want to happen, isn't happening, then know that Allah swt has something better in store for you, as long as you make dua, be sincere and leave all your affairs to Allah swt, were can you fail?

              I think as long as the first step you take is to make dua and call on Allah swt and acknowledge you cannot get through your life without His assistance then practical things come into play, workout-keeping your body and mind afresh, walks, helping out the needy so you can then reflect on how lucky you are.

              You'll be in my duas inshAllah. :)

              Do not think of minor sins as insignificant, for mountains are made out of pebbles.

                Just a word of advice because maybe you may never have known this but when you listen to music(with instruments) you are clearly going against the Prophet(pbuh) teaching. So insha'Allah if you really want to connect with Allah then you should try to abstain from things that isn't good in front of Allah.

                Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks, and the use of musical instruments as lawful. And (from them), there will be some who will stay near the side of a mountain, and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, 'Return to us tomorrow.' Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and Allah will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection."

                    Wa Alaikum Asalaam,

                    I can kinda relate at times but I would say to reflect on the many blessings that you have in front of you Alhamdullilah. Sometimes we get so caught up in life that we forget about how Allah has blessed us. If you have health or if you have time remember to take advantage of this time because you surely will be asked about this. Also remember that if at the moment you aren't able to do something just at least make the intention that you would want to do it if you had the capability to do it and insha'Allah you will be rewarded for it.

                          Curl up in a corner and cry. Or curl up in bed.

                            :scratch: Music is impermissible.
                            Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

                            "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
                            - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

                              -pray:

                              :there:

                              لا تفكر كثيرا
                              بل استغفر كثيرا

                              The children need your prayers more than anyone else

                                Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

                                You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.
