Turning Away From Allah Causes Depression

They Will Have A Depressed Life
Allah ﷻ says

فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا يَضِلُّ وَلَا يَشْقَىٰ

Then whoever follows my guidance will not suffer [in the world] nor go astray [In the Hereafter]
Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه said, “He will not be misguided in this life and he will not be distressed in the Hereafter.”

You can never go wrong by following the guidance of Allah ﷻ and obeying Him!

In the Dunya, the hearts are content with what Allah ﷻ has blessed them with, they are at peace and in tranquility through their worship of Him ﷻ.
They are happy because of what Allah ﷻ has promised them in Akhirah.
And what is in Akhirah?
They won’t go astray in Akhirah because they followed Allah’s guidance in Dunya!

Dawah by Beautiful Character

Allah ﷻ says

اِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ كَانَتْ مِرْصَدًا

Surely Jahannam lies in ambush

Jahannam will grab those who were wicked in Dunya and they will be dragged down to serve their punishment.

But as the Hadith goes
Prophet ﷺ said Some will cross the Sirat (The bridge over Hellfire) in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse.
He who has very little light will creep facedown. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping.
[For full Hadith see Sahih al-Bukhaari 7439 and Sahih Muslim 183]

Eid: The Celebration of Self-Cleansing

You won’t go astray in Akhirah!
And you will be in front of Jannah!

Continuing where we left off
Then Allah ﷻ says

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِى

But whomsoever turns away from my remembrance

Meaning away from Allah’s command, and Muhammad ﷺ and his Sunnah and sought guidance elsewhere.

فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكاً

Indeed he will lead a depressed life.
Meaning His life will be hard, he will have no tranquility, no matter what he possesses he won’t be happy, and he will always be in confusion and doubt.

Does a slave who knowingly disobeys Allah feel contentment?
Or does guilt and sadness overwhelm him?
Does he feel at peace?
Of course not!

Proud Sinners Shamelessly Expose Their Sins

Because he knows that Allah ﷻ could snuff his life out in the blink of an eye and he would be disgraced!
