The right remedy at those depressing times..

“Seek help in patience and As-Salat(the prayer). Truly, Allah is with the As-Sabirun(the patient).” (2:153)

Something strange happened yesterday.

I was in a very low mood in college! Throughout the week my positive energy had been drained, I wasn’t able to concentrate in class. The depression was sinking in again. The first 2 hours of college, as I sat in class, my mind messed with various thoughts, I wondered how far will I be able to take it! How can I stop being sensitive?! How can I stop being sad about the things that are past now! How do I ever get over everything if I am being reminded of it every single day?!

As I sat there fighting these thoughts away I begged Allah(SWT) to help me! I asked the Almighty to bestow his mercy on me and make it easy for me! I begged him to show me a way out of this and to not let me be a slave to the pleasures of this dunya ever again! I pleaded Him to not to let me go away from Him ever again!!

During the break I sat in class, put my head down on the desk and staring into space I dropped a tear! I then decided I needed some fresh air and walked out of class. I found 2 of my friends in the corridor and joined them. But again I stood there without uttering a single word, totally lost in my thoughts! And what I heard next suprised me!..

My non-muslim friend turned towards me, looking at me for a few seconds, and with a smile, she said, “GO PRAY! :)”.. A sudden rush took over me and for a second I couldn’t believe my ears, I felt as if Allah was using her as a mediator to tell me what was the right thing to do at the moment. Help had come from my Lord, and he’d shown me exactly what I should do. I looked at my watch, with ample time by my side to offer Namaz-e-Duha, I smiled at her and with words “I think I’l do that” I walked to the library to pray.

I offered 2 rakah namaz. Tears rushed through my eyes as I made dua and asked Allah to never let me go, to stay by my side, to help me. I told Him that I trusted He had something better in store for me, so as of today I just needed a little help from him to go through this.

When I got up to leave, as I walked towards my class with a smile, I couldnt help but thank Allah(swt) for showing me the right thing to do at the depressing times in this life. Alhumdulillah, alhumdulillah, how Merciful is my Lord! 🙂

So next time, when you are depressed, get up and stand in prayer. Surely Allah’s help is just round the corner! 🙂
