The Fastest Cure For Depression, Anxiety, Stress
By: Shaykh Abdurrazaq Al-Badr
Sheikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him says:
“Indeed the need of the heart of Allah’s remembrance is like how a fish needs water.”
So what state would the fish be in if it left the water?
You would see how it is very disturbed. And this is the case in the hearts, if they leave the remembrance of Allah they are distributed. And it will enter into them (as a result) – anxiety and worry, grief and sadness, (all of this) due to its distance from the remembrance of Allah.
