All Hearts are dead except those with knowledge... All those with knowledge are asleep except those who perform good actions... All those who perform good actions are deceived except those with sincerity... And all those with sincerity are in a constant state of anxiety... [Imam Shafi'i]

Dont ask...

How r u supposed to know who to seek advice from when u desperately need help? I know that theres a hadith where the prophet (SAS) told us to seek help from those who fear Allah. But isn't it weird how if what u need advice about is regarding some sin u've fallen into it is so difficult and often seems impossible to seek help from those who fear Allah? Because u begin to think that these ppl r so good and get ashamed of urself and fall into a bigger form of deppression. Obviously it's all shaytans tricks with our minds. But how do u overcome it?

By the way ppl, dont start thinking that ami deppressed. Just asking coz i know this is a scenario many many ppl fall into. Thats y with all the people I've ever given dawah to, they've been like really good friends to me so i guess they cud always tell me stuff, regardless of how personal they were. And as a frend I've always been able to advise them in a way that they wud value what i had to say. But when stuff comes up with me i cant tell em, coz oder chokh e ami choto hoye jabo and they will start to think that what I do is ok by Islam. And then I'll get even more deppressed. I think the best solution here is to open up 2 Allah - build up a closer bond with Him. Then 'har mushkil ahsan ho jayega', meaning all ur problems will become easy to solve (it sounds way too cliche in hindi).

Shared prob Bob. People will tell me their their most personal dilemmas and life experiences but no matter how much of a friend a person may be, and no matter how much I regard them as trustworthy honest and so on.. I just can't ever tell them my own issues or concerns and my own 'sins' and feel-bad-about's. So, what I want is to actually really want the bond thing with Allah swt that you mentioned, to seek nearness to Him.. since I can't seem to turn to anybody else and nobody else is a greater forgiver, understander and helper. But thank God for friends and family.. they are blessings that support our happiness and health.
