✅ When it comes to reading Qur’ān I recommend reciting out loud as this allows the ears and eyes to benefit from the Words of Allāh. It also helps slow you down and trigger reflections.
✅ When is comes to hitting the gym, exposure to sunlight & water intake, we need to appreciate that a healthy body creates a healthy mind. It decreases stress which allows your mental health to improve. The Prophet ﷺ said “The strong believer is better than the weak one”.
✅ Praying when the Salah window is about to close is a stressful situation. It makes you feel like you just need to get rid of a burden. Salah is a gift from Allāh that helps us stay connected to Him. When done right it elevates the person from the worries of this life.
✅ Talking to someone about your problems is important. Shurah (consultation) is from the Sunnah. The Prophet ﷺ had Abu Bakr— best friends from the age of 15! Seeking advice does not mean you don’t have tawakkul in Allāh.
