Question: Shaykh could you please give you sincere advice on how to get rid of depression I’m a student and it is really affecting my studies? Is due to a deficiency of imaan?
Answer: Depression could be for a variety of reasons- we should seek help of experts of every field. If my car broke down, I would try to find the best mechanic. Similarly, you should try to see the best physician.
Talk to your G.P. See if he can refer you to a good reliable psychiatrist. They are very professional. They interview you and get to the root of the problem. Then they prescribe the medicine.
These feelings of depression could be due to lack of sleep. Try and maintain a healthy sleep pattern, sleep early, avoid TV before sleeping, don’t sit on the computer too much, eat healthy food and lastly pray Namaaz with punctuality and cry before Allah after every Namaaz. Inshallah, Allah will cure you. I will also make dua for you.
May Allah make your studies easy for you and bring you the best results. Ameen
