    Title: Unable to perform Salah when any troubles occur in my Life.

    Question: I will perform salah almost regularly. But, when I am in tension or any trouble I am not interested to perform any salah and I will become very depressed. Please, can you help me out to rectify my salah. Many scholars say that if you are in trouble then pray to Allah but for me it is not coming from my heart to perform salah or any thing. Please, can you guide me what to do at this period of time. Any supplication or any thing.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    It is fardh-e-ain to offer five times of salah regularly, whether you feel interested in it or not. You should recite the following dua extensively:

    لا حول ولا قوة الا بالله العلي العظيم


    In-shaAllah, your tension will lessen. Also, keep on supplicating after each salah to remove your anxiety and depression. If there is any pious and practicing Alim nearby then visit him, in-shaAllah, you shall have peace of mind.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
