There comes a time in our lives when life seems hell, nothingness prevails around, hopes and dreams loose all their charms, you even stop loving yourself and most specifically you start loosing faith and prayers become meaningless. This is the time to think around and contemplate on your daily conduct .We usually refer this situation of loosing hope and sense of nothingness to Depression, which can be cured by medical treatments and various therapies, that in my opinion is not so correct conception. What I feel about Depression is that it is a spiritual disease so can only be healed by spiritually upgrading of oneself. It is most important to find the root causes of Depression. What is Depression ? Why it happens ? What are the main reasons responsible for its development?. Depression is a continuous melancholic state which can prolong to lifetime impairment if not taken seriously and it is caused by hopelessness. Depression happens when one looses hope or it would not be wrong to say if one looses faith. Why it happens so ? It can be because of our misconducts and our negligence which could be deliberate. When duties and obligations are not properly done or fulfilled it eventually give rise to Depression .Yes it does.
Now the question rises how to get rid of it. How one can bring back life to life. Simply suggesting one to stay happy and recommending them numerous activities wont help in getting away from depression completely although it may help but for a very short period. The only option that left is of Repentance. Repent! There is always hope when one repent.The first step should be that a person should accept and own his mistakes ,sins and flaws and then next step is of Repenting on them. If its possible cry over all your past sins and wrongdoings and seek your Creator’s Mercy. Allah is the one who love us more than anything. Islam always leaves a door open for repentance. Repentance wash away all your sins no matter how big they are. Make Astaghfaar your routine if you want peace of mind, tranquility and divine inspiration .
And [saying], “Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.( Surah Hud 11:3)
and If you want to be physically fit and want to stay away from all sort of illness and disease then make Astaghfaar part of your life.
“And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals.” ( Surah Hud 11:52)
If you want to save yourself from all trialing of the worlds, evils and calamities offer Astaghfaar
But Allah would not punish them while you, [O Muhammad], are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness. (Surah Al-Anfaal 8:33
For prosperity ,rain and abundance of Rizq-e-Halal repent
