Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas’ood, that the Messenger of Allah [SAWS] said: There is no person who suffers any anxiety or grief, and he/she says: (refer to the image attached) except that Allah will take away his anxiety and grief, and replace his sorrow with joy.
It’s as if Rasool Allah [SAWS] is saying that if you’re depressed/sad/anxious/sorrowful, then the way to relieve this is to make your life revolve around the Quran! Because once you read the Quran, you will find:
- peace and tranquility of the heart [Surah Ar-Rad,13:28]
- physical and spiritual healing (shifaa), and mercy [Surah Al-Isra, 17:82]
- guidance on how to live life, and good news [Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:97]
How is it possible for someone who is attached to the Quran to ever be depressed?
