Islamic marriage advice and family advice

I don’t know why, but I am feeling depressed and need support.


Depressed girl heartbroken distressed

As-Salaam Alaikum my dear Muslim brothers and sisters,

After some thinking I have decided to write here about what I am currently going through. I am a 5th year medical student and Alhamdulillah will graduate in 2024. This medical school journey was not at all easy, but thanks to Allah, I have managed to reach this far.

Emotionally, I have been feeling very down and at times I cannot control my anger and frustrations. It feels as if a cloud of negative emotions is over me and I am losing my motivation and willingness to live.

I am blessed with a wonderful family who deeply loves and cares for me. I do not want to worry my parents and disappoint them as they consider me their pride. However, deep down I am suffering and really don't know how to handle this.

I read dua and after prayers, I ask Allah to show me the right way. I believe Allah wants me to overcome my fears and become stronger but when I feel depressed, I stop eating and looking after myself. I get easily upset with friends over little matters although I am at the end only upset with myself for behaving this way. 

What can I do to stop this? Please give me some advice on how I can handle this, what dua can I read that will make me feel better and ease my pain?

  1. Assalam Alaikom dear sister, I hope this message finds you well and I’m good health
    Alhamdulillah Allah has provided you with such a great and loving family, physical health, knowledge, shelter… and so much more Alhamdulillah
    I really pray that Allah Subhanah wa Taala makes this period easy for you, and reward you with his best reward in this life and the after life ameeen
    Your story has reminded me of myself, long story short: I did as you mentioned Duaa, tried not missing a single prayer, crying to Allah, reviewed my intentions the obligations Allah has commanded, just to find myself missing lots of things and that time of hardship really really opened my eyes and teached me a lot without even realizing it, it was all from Allah and indeed to Him we return so no need to worry nor to be sad, Sabr, sabr my dear sister is the key
    Also, try giving charity? (A good word is considered charity, even a smile as our Prophet peace and blessings be upon him declared) what I did is with the guidance of Allah subhanahu wa Taala of course is being kind to others especially kids, literally just having a more shiny personality even tho I am not feeling it, and does change a lot sister
    Also, sometimes it is just the words of Shaytan that come to my mind, then I found Morning/Night athkar so I started reading them Alhamdulillah the feeling of security and comfort
    Please my dear sister have Sabr
    Allah subhanahu wa Taalah says {فإن مع العسر يسرًا} } also Glorified is He, says: {إنما يوفّى الصابرون أجرهم بغير حساب}
    Also, here are some of the Thikr you can say in such times:
    لا حول و لا قوة الا بالله La Hawla wala quawwata illa billah means: there’s no might and no power except with Allah, it has been narrated by Abu Huraira that it is a remedy of 99 diseases the lightest of which is anxiety may Allah relieve stress and anxiety of every Muslim in the world ❤️
    اللهم اني أعوذ بك من الهم و الحزن و أعوذ بك من العجز و الكسل و أعوذ بك من الجبن و البخل و اعوذ بك من غلبة الدين و قهر الرجال
    O Allah, I seek refuge in you from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and overpowered by men
    اللهم صل على محمد و على آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم و على آل إبراهيم و بارك على محمد و على آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم و على ال ابراهيم في العالمين انك حميد مجيد
    اللهم صل و سلم و بارك على نبينا محمد Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik aala nabiyina Muhammad
    اللهم فرج هم المهمومين و نفس كرب المكروبين
