Tips for Managing Depression and Anxiety as a 20-Year-Old

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I’m a 20 year old boy. I struggle very much with depression and anxiety. I do not feel that I can manage anything in my life. I do poorly at school and struggle socially. I pray everyday and make dua but do not feel happiness or peace, and it has made me feel hopeless. It would be a great help if you could give me  some tips.


A: Frequent the gathering of some pious elder, or alternately read the kitaabs and biographies of some pious elders or Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat. May Allah Ta`ala relieve you of your problems.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
