Shaykh Yaser Birjas discusses how social comparisons and discontentment are the leading causes of depression.
We may find ourselves sad, depressed and lonely. We sometimes wonder about our spiritual state. Praying or fasting doesn’t make us feel closer to God. Why are we experiencing this? What is the solution?
Yasin Magohed talks about how to deal with depression.
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.* (Qur’an 13: 28)
Truthfulness is beloved by Allah and is purifying soap for the heart. And there is no deed that gives such pleasure to the heart, or has greater reward, than the remembrance of Allah.
