What is Depression?

Depression or major depressive disorder is a medical illness that causes a constant feeling of sadness and lack of interest. This affects how the person feels, behaves, and thinks. So, it can lead to emotional and physical problems. Typically, people with depression find it hard to go about their day-to-day activities, and may also feel that life is not worth living.

Depression. Why?

There are many reasons for depression. It is a medical condition, yes. But in most cases, depression is self-induced. We start thinking that we are in depression. And we keep thinking about how heartbroken we are. How very unsatisfied we are. How others are happier than us and finally we end up all blue and depressed.

Beat Depression.

Believe me, and it’s in your hand. All you need is the will to get rid of it and the determination and well, of course, a constant INSPIRATION, and you can easily Beat depression. 🙂

Inspiration

What comes to your mind? Oh yes! It IS AlQuran indeed 🙂

Quran[9:40]
 
If you do not aid the Prophet – Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, “Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.” And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
 

Tips

Beautify your Prayers

First thing first. Beautify your Prayer. Put your heart in your prayers and worship. So, Don’t do it as an obligation, do it as a means of contentment. Learn the meaning of whatever you recite in your Salah, or it won’t be any more than a Robotic routine. Also again Learn new Soorahs and MUZZAYAN(Decorate /beautify) your salah 🙂

Learn Quran

Quran is the best guide, and it enlightens one’s path no matter what. And Allah bestowed Us “The Ummah” with this book. Why not utilize it for our benefit then? And remember, nothing is impossible. Just make your mind and at least TRY to learn the Quran and its message slowly but with consistency. It is a great way to beat depression.

Don’t be sad, Stay Happy

 

Don’t Be Sad Allah is with us. 🙂
What a beautiful reminder, isn’t it?
Whenever you feel alone or sad, do not forget to Beat your depression by reminding yourself that Allah is with you.

Be grateful, Stay Happy

Never fail to Thank Allah no matter how sad you feel, remember if you have even the ability to “FEEL” dejection you owe that to Allah because he can take away the ability to feel, see, walk, breathe, move, blink from you any moment. So,  He doesn’t owe you anything. You owe him everything. Remember this, and you’ll be humbled.

Be Sensitive

Be Sensitive to the situations and emotions around you. And to the feelings of those who depend on you or who you depend. If you drown yourself in the swamp of disappointment, your fellows are bound to be submerged along with you. Do you not care? of course, you do.right? 🙂

Meditate

Meditate. That’s crucial. Meditate A.L.O.T.

Here’s a tip, rise early every morning (before the sun rises) and go for a walk to a peaceful, beautiful green place (probably your front lawn) walk barefooted on the damp grass.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Relax.

When you breathe in to say “A.L.L.A.H.” with every intake of air and imagine that you’re receiving his blessings, imagine that you’re happy, imagine that you’re whatever you ever dreamed of.

Then breathe out and imagine that you’re exhaling all your problems, you’re exhaling all your worries, you’re exhaling all your insecurities.

Repeat the exercise for as long as you feel entirely calmed out and happy.
It’s the best exercise and yields excellent results to Beat depression.

Dhikr

Do a lot of Dhikr.

13:28
 

“Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.”

 
Make sure you make a schedule for your days and follow it.  You do fix time every day to do some Dhikr (Zikr).
Recite duas, recite Asma-ul-Rabbi (Allah’s names, e.g. Al-Wakeel and AL-Wadood (these are bound to bring you peace and tranquillity)) as much as you can. Read a portion of the Quran daily with Tafseer / translation. Recite ayat mentioned above too. It has excellent soothing and healing powers for the heart.
 
Insha Allah, you’d feel the difference soon. May Allah Pak save us from sins and depressions. Aameen!!
