Q: I have been suffering from depression from 15 years almost and my heart has become extremely weak. I am taking antidepressants from 4 years. I recently visited a religious man, he told me your name is not suitable for you. I want to know the meaning of my name (Musaib) and if it is really wrong name, then I will have change it during nikah. Actually my parents named me Musaib without proper consultation with any religious man.
