Going through a situation where people suffer from mental illness doesn’t mean Therefore if you going to talk to somebody about a mental health issue, you talk to The Experts. So don’t go on make an appointment with the Imam.
you need to go to the imam for Spiritual maybe support or you know that you…. going with a counsellor on the side, but … the imams, you know kind of like help as well to keep in sha Allah on track and so on, that’s good. But don’t depend on the imam primarily for an issue that other professionals who depend on the imam primarily for an issue that other professionals who are specialized in the field they can help you with Insha’Allah.
One thing is that you can’t just pray away a mental illness, A lot of people think that way in this is wrong and to burden someone else with that is also not appropriate. you have to treat it. And treating it is a form of a ibadah That’s a form of worship.
Mental illness hurts you, it hurts people around you. and when you seek to cure that so that you can be a better Muslim, be a better child to your parents, a better sibling a better spouse, whatever it may be that’s actually ibadah, that’s actually an act of worship.
