It is such a immense blessing to wake up everyday with our eyesight, speech, legs, arms and so forth to still be fully functioning.
Anonymous asked: salaaam,i have been struggling with depression and anxiety and suicidal thoughts for a long time, will praying regularly help? because i have been neglecting my prayers and i dont feel well enough to pray
W.salaam, personal experience when I didn’t pray, I felt like I was the most depressed creature on Earth. Look at the people with lots of money and fame, some of them commit suicide, some of them take drugs to get that peace and content feeling. By Allah, Salah is the solution. What Allah says, it’s for our best. Trust in Allah.
“Hold on to your salah, because if you lose that, you will lose everything else.” — Umar ibn al Khattab (R.A)
If I say to you, start reading salah from tomorrow. You may not do it because it will be a shock for your body because you may not be used to it. So, take it easy. Pray 1 prayer, next day pray 2 etc.. till you are praying 5 times a day, you will be used to it. Once you are praying 5 times a day for 3-4 days in row, it’s so easy.
The ‘I don’t feel well enough to pray’ excuse won’t work, I used to think that lol when I couldn’t pray Salah properly standing up because of my injured foot. So I had to sit and pray. Imagine Umar ibn al Khattab (R.A), he got stabbed in his Salah, he fainted. He woke up, they gave him milk, what did he say? Pick me up to continue my salah. As soon as he start praying, milk start pouring out from his wounds. This is what motivates me, so the ‘i dont feel well enough to pray’ is a excuse from shaitaan. Don’t listen to him, Allah wants the best for you. May Allah make it easy for you, ameen.
