Contrary to the popular belief of depression, being normal and the one in it should not be reprimanded, there is no room for depression in Islam.
Problems and hardship greatly contribute to the said state. But, there is a Quranic verse (coming straight from the KNOWER OF ALL THINGS), about ease and another ease.
Yes. Not one ease, but there are two ease that the Creator provides for every single problem..
Allah said in the Quran,
فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
“Fa inna ma’al ‘usri yusra”
Then indeed with every difficulty there is ease,
إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا
“Inna ma’al ‘ussri yusra”
Indeed with every difficulty there is ease.
Surah Ash-Sharh (The Relief) [94:5-6],
The Noble Qur’an
Having this in mind, why become depress? Be patient. Get up! Think for a solution!
Remember that the LORD provides two eases for one problem. 🙂
