If you are thankful in the good times, being patient in the bad times becomes easier because we can think back on the good times and remember Allah’s blessings. You can reflect and say, “I may not be able to see it now, but Allah promised me ease, and Allah’s promise is true.”

In a famous hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that if anything disturbs your peace of mind, give it up. By saying so, he encouraged Muslims to preserve their mental health. Today, when millions of people consider depression as an indication of weak imaan, let us remind ourselves that it is NOT. You could be battling depression or trauma and yet your heart could be connected to Allah in the most beautiful way. All you need is to reach out to professionals who can help you overcome it!

Hadith of the day
The Prophet (peace be upon him), said, “When a curse is uttered, it is directed to the one for whom it was uttered. If it finds a path and a way, it is allowed to proceed. Otherwise, it returns to its Lord and it says: O Lord, such a person directed me to another but I did not find a way and a path, so what do you command? Allah will say: Return from where you came.”
