My anxiety is out of control. What can I do?

00:00:09 --> 00:01:01

Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, anxiety, we all have it. Some of us have it worse than others. But the point is all of us have to find different ways to cope with our anxiety. And as a matter of fact, even the greatest men and women to ever walk the face of this earth experienced anxiety at some point in time. So how does Islam address this issue? I want to bring your attention to surah Taha to the story of Musa alayhis salam, his story begins where Allah inspires him and tells him if have elf around in no talk or go to fit around. He is a tyrant, Musa alayhis salam is commanded to go and confront fit our own, and to tell fit around that, of course, the divinity that

00:01:01 --> 00:01:51

fit around claimed upon himself is simply not true, and that he should also release all the children of Israel eel berry straw eel, free them from the shackles of fit around. Now, you can imagine if you were in the position of Musa alayhis salam, you have no army, you have no support, no money, absolutely nothing. You are literally by yourself. And Musa alayhis salam only asked for one thing. Oh Allah, my brother handle and can you let him come along with me just as a support, who will upcycle money, he's a little more eloquent than I am, he'll be able to speak and confront shit our own as well. So Allah gives him that. That's it. Now Musa alayhis salam prepares himself to go back

00:01:51 --> 00:02:48

to Egypt and confront the most powerful person at that time fit around. You know what he says? Musa alayhis salam says to Allah call or rob Beshara, holy Saudi, or Allah, open my chest and keep me calm. It surely suddenly is poor ends way of teaching us to remain calm. Put yourself in the shoes of Musa alayhis salam, how would that feel? Imagine the anxiety. Imagine the stress. Imagine the worry that's on the mind of Messiah. He's what His task is all about. Remember, he left Egypt for some time because of an incident that happened. So he's already fearful to go back to Egypt. And on top of that there are wanted campaigns all across Egypt for Musala he set up so he knows how

00:02:48 --> 00:03:40

vulnerable he is when he gets back to Egypt. But still, the first thing that he asks Allah before anything else is Oh, Allah, this the nerves that are in me things xiety that's in me. Just keep me calm. So one of Islam's way to deal with anxiety is literally asking Allah to remove that anxiety to calm you down. So the next time you feel stressed and overwhelmed, and you're anxious and you can't concentrate, you can't do anything. Just tell yourself, remind yourself about Musa alayhis salam and the first thing that he did, he just turned to Allah. And he talked to Allah. And he asked Allah calm me down, keep me relaxed. And as a result, Allah subhanho wa Taala immediately calmed him down.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:46

And it wasn't just Musa alayhis salam, also the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:47 --> 00:04:38

The only difference is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam didn't have to ask for him to be calm. Allah gave that to him. I am the shore halacha Sadara it's beautiful. On the one hand, Musala Islam has to ask for it. But the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Allah already blessed him with it. We you and I both know it's very difficult to function and to concentrate when you have anxiety. ask Allah to remove that anxiety in you. And the last point that I leave you with is just remember, no matter how it is that we feel, no matter how anxious we become in life, we will always have the outlet. If we cannot turn to people for relief, that we always have the outlet to turn to Allah, this blessed

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

month of Ramadan. This is what it's all about. It's just us and our Creator. It's a fantastic time and moment for all of us to speak to Allah and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to ease the anxiety and stress in our lives in sha Allah Who Tyler in turn, give us this

00:05:00 --> 00:05:07

strength to overcome some of these pressures in sha Allah Otara May Allah azza wa jal make it easy for you along man
