To cure your sadness, Here is the list which Quran and Sunnah enlist to remove our sadness away;
1. Life is a Test!
''And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return." Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.
(Quran - 2: 155-157)
Never ever give up! Life is a test, Allah has mentioned all of it in Quran and it is wide and clear that this World and our lives are a test, and whoever passes this test, will enter the paradise created by Allah for his beloved people.
2. Always be Positive
Narrated Ibn Jaz: "I have not seen anyone who smiled more than the Messenger of Allah (pbuh)
(Tirmidhi Book 49, Hadith 4002)
Always be positive, even if you are sad to try to be positive because the time you start linking to the negative thoughts and overthinking it will lead you to the extreme depression.
3. Kick the Fear out
Satan threatens you with poverty and orders you to immorality, while Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and bounty. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
Never ever be afraid, always remember that Allah is always with you and he never wants the worst but the best for you.
4. Recite Quran and Offer Prayers
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) have said: O Bilal, make the call for prayer. Give us comfort by it
(Sunan Abu Dawood Hadith 4985)
Truly, Quran and Prayer give the peace to one’s soul.
5. Look at those who have less than you and be thankful to Allah
Also call to mind when your Lord proclaimed: "If you give thanks, I will certainly grant you more; but if you are ungrateful for My favours, My punishment is severe.
6. Always see Goodness in everything
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Wondrous is the affair of a believer, as there is good for him in every matter; this is not the case for anyone but a believer. If he experiences pleasure, he thanks Allah and it is good for him. If he experiences harm, he shows patience and it is good for him.”
(Sahih Muslim 2999)
When you will see the good in the world, the world will seem a better place for you. Try not to indulge in negative things and thoughts.
As true believers, we should not linger all the sadness, depression and stress as all the things in the world is in Allah’s hand. And Allah will always choose what is best for us. And Allah never burdens anyone more than he or she can bear.
