    Title: Solution of depression and anxiety

    Question: I am suffering from depression and anxiety since last 12 years. Since then I constantly cry and make dua to Allah (SWT) to grant me cure. Few days back I saw a dream in which my wife who is not pregnant yet gave birth to an ugly looking child whose face resembled to that of adult. Can you please interpret this dream for me.

    (1) In order to get rid of depression and anxiety you should do istighfar constantly. According to Hadith constant istighfar removes anxiety, tension, depression and calamities.


    وعن ابن عباس رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ “من لزم الاستغفار ، جعل الله له من كل ضيق مخرجاً ومن كل هم فرجاً، ورزقه من حيث لا يحتسب‏"‏ ‏، رواه أ؛مد و أبو داؤد وابن ماجة (مشكاة المصابيح ، ص 204 ، ط: المكتبة الأشرفية ديوبند)


    [Translation: Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.”]


    (1) The dream which your wife saw it seems of satanic nature. Whenever you see such types of dream then do the following three things:

    (a) On getting seek refuge with Allah from the Accursed Shaytan thrice and from this troublesome dream. For example, say: أعوذ بالله من الشيطان وشر هذه الرؤيا. [O Allah I seek Your refuge from the devil and from the evil of this dream.]

    (b) You should emit sound of spitting thrice on left side.

    (c) In case the night still remains and you intend to sleep some more time then you should sleep changing your side on which you were lying.


    عن جابر رضى الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ "‏إذا رأى أحدكم الرؤيا يكرهها فليبصق عن يساره ثلاثاً وليستعذ بالله من الشيطان ثلاثاً وليتحول عن جنبه الذي كان عليه‏ ، رواه مسلم (مشكاة المصابيح، كتاب الرؤيا، الفصل الأول ، ص: 394، ط: المكتبة الأشرفية ديوبند)‏ ‏


    [Translation: Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: the Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “When one of you sees a bad dream let him blow three times on his left, seek refuge in Allah from the Satan three times and change the side on which he was lying.]
