As a person who suffers from major depression and comorbid disorders, and whose symptoms, both past and present (e.g., psychosis, severe anxiety, cognitive difficulties (like extreme lack of concentration) made/make functioning in this thing called life extremely hard, i say that the only thing i really did today (i didn’t–couldn’t–do any of my homework, didn’t go outside, didn’t really do much of anything called “getting something done” by most people), was that i prayed all of my prayers on time, and did the best i could do, with kushu’. So… today was a great day!!! alhamdulillahi.

all allah s.w.t asks of me is that i obey Him (which includes treating all others with respect and compassion, praying my 5 daily prayers, etc.). And even if i fall short in these, Allah s.w.t. is most Kind…

and: praying, to Allah, s.w.t. is among the most productive and greatest acts you can do…so, alhamdulillah!! i accomplished something great, today, in teh sight of Allah! 🙂 (may allah swt make the salah easy on you and me, aameen).

some people may look at me as a pathetic mess, I know…But to Allah s.w.t., i know that I (at least today) am among the successful ones, even in my difficulties..As the Qur’an teaches; “O you who believe, seek help through steadfastness and the Prayers (salat). Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere.” [2:153]

(may Allah s.w.t. make me among the believers, and those who are steadfast, and those who persevere…aameen).
