Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I stumbled upon this forum when searching for some help. I need help. My worrying is getting out of control - I can't live, I can't enjoy myself whatsoever, it's a struggle just to get up anymore - I think that I'm going through some situational depression, as I remember going through a phase like this a couple of years back - but I don't know how to climb out of it. I worry about the craziest things - I can't enjoy watching a decent movie, or sitting down to Peter Pan with my siblings, or even reading a novel anymore, it's like my brain screams HARAM, it's haram to draw, it's haram to sing, it's haram to hear that song in the show, it's haram to read, it's haram, so much that I just want to curl up and stop living.

Whenever I confide in someone they don't understand - I wish that I could just snap out of it and stop worrying that everything is haram, but I can't! I'm a fully practicing, religious Muslim, I know right from wrong, but I can't stop worrying about these awful small things, to a point where I feel constantly miserable and socially debilitated.

I just want some help, or at least your dua this Ramadan. Please.

Have you spoken to a doctor about this anxiety? Sounds like you might need to in order to manage it.

Counselling and therapy sessions may help too, there are Muslim counsellors available if you're in the UK, failing that a regular counsellor who specialises in anxiety and possibly OCD may be the way forward.

May Allah ease your suffering.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Salam,

I'm a worrier too, but at some point you have to let go or else it can take over your life!! Best thing to do is if you keep second-guessing yourself Islamically is to pick one good scholar you want to go with and then ask him your questions specifically and then go with that. Shaitan can make you go crazy by making you think too much and then you end up doing nothing (which is what shaitan wants!). So definitely ask someone knowledgeable, hang out with other Muslims, go to the Masjid etc and this will help you inshaallah.
