Comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness from Depression

 Surah Duha-(93) and Dua for Solace
Comfort or consolation in a time of distress, losss, sadness, Depression!

Sunnah Dua for distress or sadness, from Depression:
Allahumma inni a'udhu bika mina'l hammi wa'l hazan wa a'udhu bika mina'l-'ajzi wa'l kasal wa a'udhu bika minal jubni wa'l bukhl wa a'udhu bika min ghalabati'd dayn wa qahri'r-rijal. (recited morning and evening)

O Allah! I seek refuge in You from anxiety and grief, and I seek refuge in You from weakness and laziness, and I seek refuge in You from cowardice and miserliness, and I seek refuge in You from being overwhelmed by debt, and the tyranny of men.
- Also used in al-Wird al-Latif? of Imam Haddad 

Its says when Wahy was stopped for 6 months the holy prophet (peace be upon him) was taunted and mocked it was a difficult
time and the remarks of; 'Muhammad's Lord has forsaken-(Abandon)  him, and is displeased with him' soon after Surah Duha-(93) was given as a Solace-(Comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness)

Someone was going through a very difficult emotional time over many months. It was due to a the loss of a man she  loved very much. And went into a deep dark depression and found it hard to get out of it. But then one night while  asleep, all night, whenever she  woke up briefly, she said the following words to herself:

93:3 Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased,
93:4 And surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before.
93:5 And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.

She did not even realize she was saying these words of Surah Duha  all night, until she  woke up this morning.

All night, whenever her eye opened from sleep, she would say these words to herself -without thinking, they were just there, on her tongue. So she thought how interesting! So she  kept reassuring her self that God has not abandanoned me, He has forgiven me, and He is bringing me something good soon!

That morning, pondering over the meaning of this and the words.she was scared, and that is why she kept saying these words, to reassure myself? So after many months of darkness, Allah is now telling her that the time has come that He will give her an exit to her grief and sadness? Inshallah.

Full Surah Duha -Morning Bright
93:1- I swear by the forenoon,
93:2 - and by the night when it becomes peaceful,
93:3 - your Lord (O Holy Prophet,) has neither forsaken you, nor has become displeased.
93:4 - And the Hereafter is much better for you than the present life.
93:5 - And of course, your Lord will give you so much that you will be pleased.
93:6 - Did He not find you an orphan, and give you shelter?
93:7 - And He found you unaware of the way (the Shari'ah), then He guided you.
93:8 - and He found you in need, then made you need-free.
93:9 - Therefore, as for orphan, do not oppress him,
93:10 -  and as for the beggar, do not scold him. 
93:11 - And about the bounty of your Lord, do talk.

Think about the words of this Surah and how its solace for Depression

That all said ones needs also need Suhba-companionship of friends to help then "out of a rut" so Solace-(Comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness)  from Depression comes Suhba and Naeeha-Good Counselling and love others are simple to leave and go out into the countryside or near a Lake or waterfall and listen to Rahman of Allahs Qudra-Power of Nature and  in that is a healing meaning take a break from the phsical place that was or is the cause of Depression and visit and travel. 

Depression is an Emotional illness and its about changing ones Niyyah or focusing on Postitve thoughts to change and became better; this article of my below may help or explain the power of Niyyah or Thoughts and healing. "Spiritual Power of Niyyah-Intention and Healing"

Giving Sadaqah will help with Duas being answered, Sins be erased and sicknesses are sometimes due to sins; Showing gratitude is sunnah and Allah loves those slaves who shows gratitude; gratitude earns more (ziyada) favours from Allah, Allah promises increased favours for those who are grateful and (hates misers see hadith below) "And when your Lord proclaimed: "If you are thankful, I will give you more"(14:7) and "We shall reward those who are thankful" (3:45)  Allah informs us that one of Satans primary objectives is to prevent humans from being grateful. So show you  support be Thankful for these Duas and Khidma and take more rewards from Allah by Helping and Support “The Sufi Healing Project” through Uns Foundation and take the barakah of this site and all the people who read its duas too through Sadaqah Jariyah.

Giving a small amount of sadaqah monthly is continuous giving which is most beloved deed before Allah. Everyday 70 problems come our way and Sadaqah is a shield to protect yourself and your family. The most beloved deed before Allah is that which is continuous, even if it is little. The constant giving of a little is said to please Allah more than the occasional gift of a lot. So if it’s in your means to donate a small amount of £2-£3 or more a month and Support “The Sufi Healing Project” through Uns Foundation.

Know about the shield of giving: "Give Sadaqah without delay, for it stands in the way of problems/calamities."(Tirmidhi) it says 70 problems that is one is shielded from 70 problems with just a small amount of sadaqah.
Saqaqah washes your sins away: "Sadaqah extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire." (Tirmidhi) "Sadaqah appeases-(To satisfy or relieve) the Lord’s anger and averts an evil death." (Tirmidhi)
The Shade of Sadaqah: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Sadaqah.” (Tirmidhi)  "The generous man is near Allah, near paradise, near men and far from hell, but the miserly man is far from Allah, far from paradise, far from men and near hell. Indeed, an ignorant man who is generous is dearer to Allah than a worshipper who is miserly."(Tirmidhi)
