These Verses will Relieve You When You're Depressed

1- YOU ARE THE BEST CREATION

Let not anyone, even yourself, tell you otherwise– you are the best as long as you worship Allah. He says:

We have certainly created man in the best of stature. (95:4)

A human being can become worse than an animal, but he can also become better than angels– all you need to do is always try to be on to the form that Allah has given you.

2- SUCCESS DOESN’T DEPEND ON HOW MUCH YOU HAVE

You don’t have to have the best job, the best car, the best house, the best spouse in order to be successful. All these things which give you feelings on insecurity, they don’t count at all. So what counts? Allah describes the qualities of people who are successful:

Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, and who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful. (2: 3-5)

3- YOU ARE FROM THE BEST NATION

From the time of Adam to the day of judgment, the best of all nations is the nation of our Prophet, and you are part of that nation.

You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah… (3:110)
Imagine the joy our Prophet will feel when he sees you on the day of judgment, a part of his ummah, a successor to him on his mission. The Messenger once went to the graveyard and said:

Peace be upon you! The abode of the believing people and we, if God so wills, are about to join you. I love to see my brothers. (Sahih Muslim 249)

Who are his brothers? Not his companions, but those who believed in him without seeing him.

4- ALLAH HAS HONORED YOU

It doesn’t matter if people ignore you or disrespect you. Allah says:

And We have certainly honored the children of Adam . . .(17:70)

You are honored by Allah. Can you understand the weight of that statement? Allah says, as recorded in a hadith Qudsi:

I will declare war against him who shows hostility to a pious worshiper of Mine. (Bukhari)

5- THIS LIFE IS TEMPORARY

No sorrow, no pain in this life is permanent. Even the people who have hurt you will perish soon. You will go to the next world soon. This message is reiterated in the Quran many times.

Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]. And they rejoice in the worldly life, while the worldly life is not, compared to the Hereafter, except [brief] enjoyment. (13:26)
This is just like a wait at the station – you’re real home is waiting for you, and you’ll reach it after the train to the Hereafter.

6- STRUGGLES OF OTHERS

Let no one tell you that you shouldn’t feel pain, that if you feel sad that means there’s something wrong with your belief. What your pain indicates to is that you’re a human being, and you’re like the Prophets and pious people, who were also human beings and used to feel pain.

Take the example of Jacob (peace be upon him) who was so broken down after he lost his second son that he lost his eyesight. The Quran records this scene:

And he turned away from them and said, “Oh, my sorrow over Joseph,” and his eyes became white from grief, for he was [of that] a suppressor. They [his sons] said, “By Allah , you will not cease remembering Joseph until you become fatally ill or become of those who perish.” He said, “I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah , and I know from Allah that which you do not know . . .” (Quran 12: 84-86)

These are only a very few of the counsels which Quran offers in each page for sadness and grief. So make Quran a part of your everyday life to benefit from the counseling of Allah.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
