Anxiety mentioned in the Quran

The Quran as the word of Allah has the medications of numerous diseases and ailments, much before research was carried out. In the same way Allah has spoken in the Quran about human anxiety and how to fight it.

It says in the Quran that “Indeed, mankind was created anxious- (Quran. 70:9)” This has a lot of meanings to it but one of the most important ones is that Allah has created humans for paradise but brought us upon earth. This means that humans are in an environment that is not normal for it. Therefore Allah’s creation goes through an array of emotions in this world and while there are positive emotions that humans feel there are also emotions like anxiety and sadness.

Allah has said very clearly in the Quran that the only way to fight anxiety is to have the remembrance of Allah and have faith in Him, worship Him and stay close to Him. There are also many different other ways to release anxiety that Allah has spoken of in the Quran, like intake of honey and milk. Infact honey and milk is spoken of so much in the Quran that Allah has mentioned it as rivers flowing of the both blessings.

There are a number of ayats in the Quran that will help you in your anxiety. Allah says “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (13:28). Allah says in the Quran “Indeed, after hardship there is ease” (94:6) when you read these verses and you know Allah is in command of your life and He alone will plan the best for you, all your fears will go away when you know someone is taking care of you. So put all worries to ease and handover your anxiety and miseries to Allah. All we should do is know that the situation you are in won’t be forever and that one day all your worries will go away and everything will be okay InshAllah.
