And you will continue to strive in this life to be the best insha Allah so faith feeds and fills the inner peace. And that's how you deal with depression. Solution number three, my beloved brothers and sisters, we have to govern our lives with a rule book. And what is the rule book, the glorious Koran and the teachings of the Prophet peace

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

upon him, when we have this rule book, we will be able to explore the treasures, the wisdom, the knowledge, the recipes of happiness and SubhanAllah. When we are attached with this book, we will be able to withstand any and every kind of difficulty problem or challenge in life, because it's only then we will realize how to overcome it. For example, the glorious for on the rule book of ours and the whole of humanity. It gives the recipe how to seek the support from Allah Almighty. Allah says in Surah Baqarah surah. Number two is number 43.

that way. Also, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives a powerful way to have hope in Allah Almighty Subhana Allah people, they get into depression, they get into, you know, sadness in grief, in tragic situation. Why? Because they do not have hopes in Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty says In surah azumah surah number 39 iron number 53 la Cana to Mira Rahmatullah Do not be hopeless in the mercy of Allah Almighty.

When we are with positive people, when we are with good people, they always encourage you, they always help you, they always try to bring you out from the problems not that you get into more problems, right? They their objective is to help you in those challenging moments. So my beloved brothers and sisters, Allah Almighty says in the Quran, oh you who believe be conscious of Allah, and be with those who are

00:09:12--> 00:09:59

truthful, that is the injunction from Allah Almighty. So we need to be surrounded, you know, by the positive people, by the people who are truthful by the people who are highly hopeful in the mercy of Allah Almighty solution. Number five, think beyond. Think beyond this life. When you know for a surety that you're going to die one day, when you know that there is a life you're after, when you know that this life will never ever quench your thirst completely. When this life is a full of test and it's an examination when you prepare your mindset. And that is think beyond this life when you start doing that, you know

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

That this life is temporary, this life is limited. So these tests are also limited. So you when you think we are beyond, and that is the year after Allah Almighty says in the Quran,

00:10:13--> 00:11:08

that this, you know the hereafter life is better than this life Subhan Allah, why because that life is forever that life is permanent, that life there are no tests, the tests are in this life, this life is limited, this life is temporary. So when you think beyond, you know, Allah Almighty will give you the understanding and the wisdom to deal with the life in the most practical and sensible way. And that's how you deal with depression.
