  • Life is not worth of living anymore.

    Life doesn't seem like as it use to be before. It seems like a waste and no need of a living. I am going through very much. I have gone through a lot for the past 5 years and went through depression, anxiety, etc. However, I tried my best in praying 5 times daily, and in result despite the fact praying all the time I gained nothing but pain and sorrow. I don't know where to go and what to do. I am always crying and seeking someone's help but its not worth it. Whenever I sit down alone to do something, my mother would approach me and bring old memories of my critical situations share with me. She is always worried about my rishta and all. I don't really know what to do. I am always depressed. I feel like as if nothing is leting me change myself. I really don't know what to do. I mean am looking forward to change but it seems like its not worth it and it would never be able to change. I am not liking the enviornment due to the depression and anxiety. Can someone please be kind enough to tell me what to do in this situation?

    Thanks

    http://www.sakoon.co.uk/index.html <-- my recommendation for dealing with depression, anxiety, pain and sorrow etc.

    This life is a prison for the believers, and sometimes all you can do is focus on the next life, which is infinitely better than this one alhamdulillah. So stay steadfast in Islam, keep trusting in Allah, ask Allah to heal you from your sorrow, depression and anxiety, and also get counselling inshaAllah (preferably from an Islamic counselling service) because that's a really good treatment for depression and anxiety and similar inshaAllah. That can help you a lot in moving forward inshaAllah.

      Re: Life is not worth of living anymore.

      Some people treat Allah like a geeni in a bottle. Pray this dua and you get this, if I make salah five times a day, Allah should make my life better. We are not worshiping Allah so we get a reward in this life. Do you really want your rewards given to you in this life when it would be better to have them in the akhirah? When you suffer more here and are patient you will get rewards for that and have you sins taken away. That is a mercy and a blessing and something to cause you to turn back to your Lord. Living life for this dunya is not really worth living, you are right. We will be here a short time, have some pleasure and pain, then die. But we are not living to build a life here, we are living to build a home in the akhirah. We are on this planet to worship Allah, to glorify Him, to praise Him, to be thankful to Him, to be amazed by Him. It is only in the remembrance of Allah and fulfillment of tawheed that we will find peace in this world, then comes the first jannah, the jannah of this world. It's the feeling of tranquility that comes with trusting Allah as disposer of your affairs, it comes from loving Allah and Him loving you. If we don't reach this first jannah, then we are unlikely to reach the second jannah after death. If we are only chasing our own desires, it is all at loss, this world and the next. So do what you are meant to do, strive towards Allah. That is the only success.
      Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the Dominion, and He is Able to do all things. (67.1)

          Do not despair of the Mercy and Forgiveness of Allah ta'ala, brother/sister, for only the Kuffar would lose all hope ...

          Surah Yusuf, Chapter 12 : Ayah 87
          ----------------------------------
          "O my sons! Go you and enquire about Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah's Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allah's Mercy, except the people who disbelieve."

          remember also the Promise of Allah ta'ala, and the fact that he will test our Imaan in various ways ...

          Al-Quran, Chapter 2 : Ayah 155
          -------------------------------------
          And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).

          This is a test you cannot afford to loose.

          be patient and steadfast whatever comes your way ...

          Muhammad :saw: said, "How wonderful is the situation of the believer, for all his affairs are good. If something good happens to him, he gives thanks for it and that is good for him; if something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience, and that is good for him. This does not apply to anyone but the believer.

          (Sahih Muslim)

                  Do you think there are things that need changing when it comes to your health, diet, and life circumstances that might help you get out of this?

                      Asalaamu alaikum

                      Read these as soon as ur mind goes overcharge

                      In al-Saheehayn it was reported from Ibn ‘Abbaas that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say, when he felt distressed:“La ilaaha ill-Allaah al-‘Azeem ul-Haleem, Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Rabb il-‘arsh il-‘azeem, Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Rabb is-samawaati wa Rabb il-ard wa Rabb il-‘arsh il-kareem (there is no god except Allaah, the All-Mighty, the Forbearing; there is no god except Allaah, the Lord of the Mighty Throne; there is no god except Allaah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne).”

                      And it was reported from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say, when something upset him:“Yaa Hayyu yaa Qayyoom, bi Rahmatika astagheeth (O Ever-Living One, O Everlasting One, by Your mercy I seek help).”

                      And it was reported that Asmaa’ bint ‘Umays (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to me: “Shall I not teach you some words to say when you feel distressed? ‘Allaah, Allaah, Rabbee laa ushriku bihi shay’an (Allaah, Allaah, my Lord, I do not associate anything with Him).’

                      ”It was reported from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No person suffers any anxiety or grief, and says:‘Allaahumma innee ‘abduka wa ibn ‘abdika wa ibn amatika, naasiyati bi yadika, maadin fiyya hukmuka, ‘adlun fiyya qadaa’uka, as’aluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka sammayta bihi nafsaka aw anzaltahu fi kitaabika aw ‘allamtahu ahadan min khalqika aw ista’tharta bihi fi ‘ilm il-ghaybi ‘andak an taj’ala al-Qur’aana rabee’ qalbi wa noor sadri wa jalaa’a huzni wa dhahaaba hammi (O Allaah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your female slave, my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every Name belonging to You which You named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety)’- but Allaah will take away his sorrow and grief, and give him in their stead joy.”

                        anxiety and depression often is not caused by the situation that someone is in, sometimes it can be (e.g. if you have a very stressful place of work, when you leave that place it can go away) but usually it's more deepseated than that and in some cases counselling can help the person to get past it completely, although in other cases it may not help so much (but it can significantly improve things in the majority of cases inshaAllah).

                        A lot of people assume that it's just an emotion or temporary state of mind, or something you can just snap yourself out of ---- everyone who suffers from it really wishes that was the case, but it's not.

                        OP - inshaAllah please look into the Islamic counselling service that I linked to, because it really can help alhamdulillah. Any good quality mental health counselling can help, but IMO Islamic counselling is better because a) your counsellor is a practicing Muslim who can include anything from Islam that may benefit you as you go through the treatment inshaAllah and b) your counsellor understands how mental health affects you *as a Muslim* including problems like low emaan (mental health problems can be really draining and leave you with low emaan, subhanAllah) and can suggest things that can help you with that. Non-Muslim counsellors can't do that, and even though they can be very understanding and sympathetic to Islam and your desire to practice it well, they don't have a huge amount of understanding of Islam or where you want to be in terms of emaan, practicing etc. So I really recommend it inshaAllah. This is from personal experience btw, i.e. this helped me a LOT alhamdulillah.
