Q: I am a young Muslim male who is suffering from stress and hopelessness. I am a student of civil engineering and I live currently in the Netherlands since 2011. I find it difficult to live my life here. The language is difficult and I have no interest to go to school. Every morning I am depressed. Everyday I am in worry and depression. I am planning to stop my study and go to a country in Africa to do business inshallah. But there is a thing in my mind that tells me what if I go there and loose my business? What if I am going to regret about my study? etc… I am hopeless now I don’t know what to do? Please, what should I do? Please give me some advice.
A: Trust in Allah Ta`ala and start of business small. May Allah Ta`ala give you barkat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
