Is Social Media Making You Anxious?

Go through the pages of Quran before you check your pages on social media. Constantly being connected to the world on social media leads to anxiety and depression if we are not careful.

If you find yourself in this position where the checking-in online leads you to feeling anxious, insecure or inadequate, take a break and spend more time bonding with others offline. Besides rationalising your use of social media, spend more time with the words of Quran as it’ll soothe your soul and heart.

﴿يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا هَل أَدُلُّكُم عَلى تِجارَةٍ تُنجيكُم مِن عَذابٍ أَليمٍ۝

تُؤمِنونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسولِهِ وَتُجاهِدونَ في سَبيلِ اللَّهِ بِأَموالِكُم وَأَنفُسِكُم ذلِكُم خَيرٌ لَكُم إِن كُنتُم تَعلَمونَ۝

يَغفِر لَكُم ذُنوبَكُم وَيُدخِلكُم جَنّاتٍ تَجري مِن تَحتِهَا الأَنهارُ وَمَساكِنَ طَيِّبَةً في جَنّاتِ عَدنٍ ذلِكَ الفَوزُ العَظيمُ۝

وَأُخرى تُحِبّونَها نَصرٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتحٌ قَريبٌ وَبَشِّرِ المُؤمِنينَ﴾

سورة الصف ١٠-١٣

10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

11. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

12. He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of – Eternity, that is indeed the great success.

13. And also another (blessing) which you love, help from Allahand a near victory. And give glad tidings to the believers.

[Surah As-Saff: 10-13]
