“O my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Worry, stress, anxiety, and depression are occurring frequently amongst the people, and many issues which form some of the views points of some of them (those who have been afflicted with these issues) that there is no solution for it; and perhaps the individual possessing those worries resorted to its treatment by what Allah, The Mighty and Majestic, has declared unlawful; and perhaps he went toward that which is even greater than that, and more dangerous. Hence he goes to fortune tellers, witches, swindlers and illusionists; and perhaps it’s that he doesn’t take a means from the means which it’s possible that Allah will drive away or dispel from him (his worries) through its means and make for him, from every affliction, a release from suffering, and from every depression/tightness a way out, although it may be at arms reach. Yet he resorts to the unlawful and he resorts to what is in conformity with the one who says, “Treat me with that which (in it and of itself) is an illness.”
Many complain from mental anxiety (stress) due to this (dunya) worldly life and its fleeting vanities, and allurements. They complain of poverty, or tight situations, or family problems, or corruption in the wealth and the children… and casualties after casualties in the affairs of this short lived worldly life; and problems related to shareholdings and stock exchanges, and whatever is similar to that from those things people may perhaps, complain about often.
