Causes of worries and sorrows

The life of this world is full of worries, troubles and difficulties, and one of them was asked: “When does a servant find the taste of comfort? He said: At the first foot in Paradise.” And happiness, even if he is afflicted with trials and worries, he finds in it pleasant connotations and good secrets. As for a heart full of disobedience and following Satan; He finds darkness, sorrows, worries and anguish, and one of the most prominent causes that lead its owner to worry, distress and distress is the accumulation of debts on man. That is why the Messenger of God – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – used to seek refuge in God from religion, and from the causes as well is a lot of thinking about the future, the trials and calamities of the world, and the worry that He finds him calling to God when he invites his people.[1]

  • The Messenger of God – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – said one day to Asma bint Umays, may God be pleased with her: (Shall I not teach you words that you say when you are in distress or in distress? God, God, my Lord, I do not associate anything with Him).[4]
  • The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: (The supplication of Dhul-Nun. There is no god but You, Glory be to You, I was one of the wrongdoers, for it was not supplication by a Muslim whose Lord answered him in anything).[5]
  • The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: (No one has ever been afflicted by distress or grief, and said: O God, I am Your servant, the son of Your servant, and the son of Your maidservant. In your book, or you taught it to one of your creation, or you preserved it in the knowledge of the unseen with you, that you make the Qur’an the spring of my heart, the light of my chest, the expelling of my sorrow, and the departure of my anxiety, except that God Almighty and Exalted be He, the Exalted, the Majestic, remove his grief, God’s sadness, replace his sorrow! Should we learn these words?” He said: “Yes, those who have heard them should learn them.”[6]

Treat anxiety and sadness

Human life in this world fluctuates between sadness and joy, health and disease, well-being and affliction, but the believer should thank God – the Most High – when He bestows His blessings upon Him, be patient with trials, and seek forgiveness from sins and disobedience. Undoubtedly, the treatment of worries and sorrows is by following the reasons for the happiness of the chest. And from that supplication; The believer should always supplicate to God to facilitate his affairs and relieve his worries and distress, with urgency in that, as well as sincerity; The believer who worships God – the Almighty – with sincerity and sincerity, remains at peace of mind, as he does not expect praise or thanks from anyone, and does not occupy himself with regret and heartbreak if he does not receive praise and praise from people.[15]

One of the reasons is also to reflect on the blessings of God on man; Health, air, security, food, eyes, ears, tongue, hands, feet, mind, and many other countless blessings. He wastes his day worrying and thinking a lot about the future, and he does not waste his time by returning to the obsession of the past, and he relies on God Almighty, and faces life with patience and endurance, and his weapon in it is faith in God Almighty, and he continues to do good deeds.[15]
