A common complaint.... a one of a kind answer

Imaam Ibnu Taymiyyah رحمه الله تعالى was asked,

"What is the cure for a person who has been gripped with illness? A person who is in the clasp of destruction? What does a person do if he has been overcome by laziness? How can I be a person who is assisted by Allaah? What is the solution for a person who has been defeated by confusion, for whenever he tries turning to Allaah سبحانه و تعالى his desires prevent him and whenever he seeks to be productive, failure haunts him?"

The Imaam رحمه الله تعالى responded,

دواؤه الالتجاء إِلَى الله ودوام التضرع وَالدُّعَاء بِأَن يتَعَلَّم الْأَدْعِيَة المأثورة ويتوخى الدُّعَاء فِي مظان الْإِجَابَة مثل آخر اللَّيْل وأوقات الْأَذَان وَالْإِقَامَة وَفِي سُجُوده وَفِي أدبار الصَّلَوَات

"His cure is to turn to Allaah سبحانه و تعالى and continue pleading with Him in Du'aah by learning the Du'aah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and to carefully choose the times when Du'aah is answered, like the last part of the night, and between the call for prayer and Iqaama, and during prostration, and after prayer.."

وَيضم إِلَى ذَلِك الاسْتِغْفَار فَإِنَّهُ من اسْتغْفر الله ثمَّ تَابَ إِلَيْهِ متعه مَتَاعا حسنا إِلَى أجل مُسَمّى

"He should add to this Istighfaar (asking Allaah for forgiveness), for a person who does this and is subsequently forgiven, Allaah سبحانه و تعالى will give him a life of enjoyment until an appointed time."

وليتخذ وردا من الْأَذْكَار طرفِي النَّهَار وَوقت النّوم وليصبر على مَا يعرض لَهُ من الْمَوَانِع والصوارف فَإِنَّهُ لَا يلبث أَن يُؤَيّدهُ الله بِروح مِنْهُ وَيكْتب الْإِيمَان فِي قلبه

"Let him also adopt a portion of remembrances in the morning and evening and before falling asleep, and let him patiently resist the matters that prevent and distract him from doing this, for it will only be a matter of time before Allaah will start sending him assistance from Him and will write 'imaan within his heart."

When your sleep....

Abu Huraira (رضي الله عنه) narrated that Allaah's Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said,

"During your sleep, Satan knots three knots at the back of the head of each of you, and he breathes the following words at each knot, 'The night is, long, so keep on sleeping.' If that person wakes up and celebrates the praises of Allaah, then one knot is undone, and when he performs ablution the second knot is undone, and when he prays, all the knots are undone, and he gets up in the morning lively and gay, otherwise he gets up dull and gloomy."
