  1. I think this is a sign of calling you back to Allah

    I keep having such feelings too sometimes I can't sleep at night I get scared and falling sick so often this days I've been having appointments with doctors.

    But when ever I make this du'a I feel at ease "oh Allah please do not take my life until I've satisfy you enough, until I've done enough good deeds, and ya Allah please make me a famous person among your angels in your paradise I should be known as a very loyal servant to you as a good servant. And ya Allah keep me close to you increase your fear and the love of your beloved prophet in my heart. "

  2. Allah gives his ppl different tests to brong them closer to Allah believe in his wisdom and pray 5 times a day, read the quran!

  3. As Salam O Alaikum

    " BIRTH is the Beginning of DEATH "

    Who is born has to go, today tomorrow or one fine day. So until we are there, lets do something good.

    There is a saying i shall quote it in Urdu -


    It means - Remember Death always, but dont wish for it.

    So Brother / Sister, take it easy. Lately have you attended anyones funeral or heard about someones tragic sudden death ? Then sometimes its mental state of shock or probably the mind being depressed. Keep yourself busy. Death is not to be thought about or talked about. No one except ALLAH (SWT) knows who will die when , so relax and do something good which makes you happy.

    If we end up thinking about our death we will get paralyzed and stop doing our daily routines, our work, career. Still what would happen ? When death has to come it will come. So why think on it ? 🙂

    Have a Happy and a Blessed Life. You have a long way to go. You are just 21. Eat Healthy, be pleasant rather feel pleasant and keep yourself busy 😀

    Wa Salam !

  4. Salaam,

    Try to backtrack and think about what you have done before you started feeling this way.
    Did you hurt someone or do something you shouldn't have?
    You may be feeling guilty and afraid of what you may have done.
    Simply pray and keep asking for forgiveness even if you haven't done anything, you will feel a lot lighter and happier.


    As mentioned earlier, this may be a feeling from Allah for you to turn closer to Him.
    It may be a reminder for you to pray your 5 daily prayers, read the Quran, do dhikr, give zakat, etc.

    Allah knows best.
