If a person is living in an in a toxic, abusive environment, or a toxic, abusive relationship, that person, of course is going to suffer.
And so the environment needs to be healthy by and large for you to be healthy. Environment Matters. I want to just add something here. A lot of times we hear sort of rhetoric that's like, you know, just have more. Amen. Right? If a person is suffering in an abusive home, or relationship, there's the half Saba, and then there's that, you know, just pray more, or read more Quran. You're feeling depressed, read more Quran.
I can tell you right now, reading Quran is an absolutely amazing healing. However, environment still matters. And I will give you evidence for that.
When the Prophet salallahu alayhi, who was sending them and the Companions
when they had gotten to a point where Mecca was absolutely abusive. Why were they told to migrate from the abusive environment to a healthier environment in Medina, they have Quran they had salah they had to work gold and silver more than all of us, but they still were told to leave the toxic abusive environment and go to a healthier environment.
Because of Environment Matters.
