Are you looking for some psychological relaxing treatments or some relaxing pills so you can lighten up your nerves and redirect your energies to get focused on your Daily Life?
HOLD ON! Don’t forget you are lucky enough to have a complete relaxation package in the form of Al Quran. It is proven that psychological strength depends on the feeling of satisfaction and happiness a person has in his life. Let’s look at how the concept of psychological satisfaction and happiness is defined by Allah(SWT) in the Holy Quran.
The Holy Quran tackles the different aspects of the human character, whether physical or psychological strength and deals with all the spheres of man’s life. Tackling these aspects and describing how they should be in harmony with each other guides man to lead a balanced. And hence a successful life in which he is motivated to be positive and active and play his vital role in daily life.
Psychological strength in the view of the Quran
Man has curious nature, so he is advised in Holy Quran to explore the facts of things around him, so he is left with no confusion in mind and has conceptual reasoning to what he follows. For instance, Allah Almighty draws man’s attention to the fact that all things in the Heavens and the earth are subjected to him to use them for his interests and reflect upon the truth behind their creation. Allah Almighty says:
وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا مِّنْهُ ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
“And He has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and on the earth – all from Him. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” [Al-Qur’an 45:13]
Do not exceed in your worldly desires.
Allah (SWT) also warns man against the consequences of yielding to this life’s base desires and temptations and is advised not to loosen his connections with Allah (SWT). It is implied in His words:
زُيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ حُبُّ ٱلشَّهَوَٰتِ مِنَ ٱلنِّسَآءِ وَٱلْبَنِينَ وَٱلْقَنَٰطِيرِ ٱلْمُقَنطَرَةِ مِنَ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ وَٱلْخَيْلِ ٱلْمُسَوَّمَةِ وَٱلْأَنْعَٰمِ وَٱلْحَرْثِ ۗ ذَٰلِكَ مَتَٰعُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا ۖ وَٱللَّهُ عِندَهُۥ حُسْنُ ٱلْمَـَٔابِ
“Beautified for people is the love of that which they desire – of women and offspring, heaped-up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle and tilled land. That is the enjoyment of worldly life, but Allah has with Him the best return” [Al-Qur’an 3:14]
Bring your Prospect into Freedom.
Success in life is the thing that gives the Boost to personality. The successful person, according to the Holy Qur’an, is one marked by undertaking its responsibilities in this life within the available capabilities and potentials. Allah Almighty says:
لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا
Allah does not burden any soul except [with that within] its capacity.” (Al-Qur’an 2:286).
In another verse:
وَجَٰهِدُوا۟ فِى ٱللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِۦ ۚ هُوَ ٱجْتَبَىٰكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِى ٱلدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ ۚ مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ ۚ هُوَ سَمَّىٰكُمُ ٱلْمُسْلِمِينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِى هَٰذَا لِيَكُونَ ٱلرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا۟ شُهَدَآءَ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ ۚ فَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَٱعْتَصِمُوا۟ بِٱللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلَىٰكُمْ ۖ فَنِعْمَ ٱلْمَوْلَىٰ وَنِعْمَ ٱلنَّصِيرُ
And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed any difficulty upon you in the religion. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. He [i.e., Allah] named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakat and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector, and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper. [Al-Qur’an 22:78]
So a believer should never get frustrated by the ups and downs in life. As he knows, he will not be burdened beyond his potential, and verily Allah (SWT) knows the Best.
Strengthen your FAITH in Allah (SWT).
True faith builds a person’s character and gives it all high qualities. When we refer to the Qur’an, we find true believers portrayed as truthful, worthy of others’ respect, forgiving, generous, honest, and psychological strength. These noble qualities bring one peace of mind, enhance one’s ability to give, and make one more active and cheerful.
Thus it is Allah’s (SWT) words that guide us to the perfection of personality:
أَلَا يَعْلَمُ مَنْ خَلَقَ وَهُوَ ٱللَّطِيفُ ٱلْخَبِيرُ
“Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtle, the Aware.” [Al-Qur’an 67:14]
If you are tensed and stressed, then always refer to Qur’an as he holds the solution of every psychological and physical issue. The Holy Quran revealed for the Healing of Hearts and the psychological strength:
Allah Almighty says:
وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلْقُرْءَانِ مَا هُوَ شِفَآءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارًا
“We reveal of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy for believers.” [Al-Qur’an 17:82]
In another verse of AL Quran
مَآ أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِىٓ أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلَّا فِى كِتَٰبٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَآ ۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ
“No disaster strikes upon the earth or among yourselves except that it is in a register before We bring it into being – indeed that, for Allah, is easy.” [Al-Qur’an 57:22].
Allah narrated in the Quran about the heart which is distressed and is psychologically worried because of worldly life,
وَلَقَدْ نَعْلَمُ أَنَّكَ يَضِيقُ صَدْرُكَ بِمَا يَقُولُونَ
“We know that your heart is distressed at what they say.
فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَكُن مِّنَ ٱلسَّٰجِدِينَ
“But celebrate the praises of your Lord, and be of those who prostrate themselves in adoration.”
وَٱعْبُدْ رَبَّكَ حَتَّىٰ يَأْتِيَكَ ٱلْيَقِينُ
“And serve your Lord until there is the particular hour.”
Life is to identify its true meaning to have eternal contentment. Qur’an defines it clearly via all these verses mentioned above and many more. We as believers need to stick to serving and obeying Allah(SWT) in preparation for The Hour that is certain, that is, death. Hence, adherence to glorifying Allah(SWT) and submission to Him. Most High heart and psychological strength throughout one’s life is the way that brings one inner happiness and peace of mind and brings out one from distress and life pressures. So start strengthening yourself psychologically with this Miraculous Healing book from this very right moment.
