We have to talk about something that is very serious and often neglected in the Muslim community. Mental illness. There is something we should all understand, mental illness doesn’t make your imaan weak. Nor do you have mental illness through weak imaan.
Many people think that when someone goes through a mental illness they will think that this person doesn’t believe in Allah. This is not a sign of a weak imaan. We have to separate between these two things!
When you have a mental illness you must speak to the experts and an imam is not one of them. You can go to the imam for spiritual support but you cannot go to the imam to be treated from mental illness. You cannot just pray away a mental illness. Treating this mental illness is actually an act of worship!
