How Can We Overcome Depression?

How can we overcome depression? Depression is a common illness many of us suffer from today. Depression is a chemical imbalance of the brain. If you feel depressed you should consult with your counsellor and doctor.

Depression is not the opposite of faith. It doesn’t mean that if you are depressed then you are a person without iman. You can be the most righteous Muslim but you can be depressed.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was sad many times in his life and there are many stories pointing to that. The same for the Companions. This is normal.

Consult with your doctor first and foremost to get help with depression. Keep praying to Allah and don’t stop praying. Try your best and take it step by step and Allah will help you.
