Can Muslims be affected by psychological problems


Is it possible for a Muslim to be afflicted with psychological problems? (Because some people say that a Muslim cannot be affected by psychological problems).

Praise be to Allaah.


Undoubtedly man may be afflicted with psychological problems
such as worries about the future and grief over the past. Psychological
problems affect the body more than physical problems do. We should know that
the worries and distress that affect a person are among the things that
expiate his sins and reduce the burden of sin; if he is patient and seeks
reward with Allaah, he will be rewarded for that. 

Treating these problems in the ways prescribed in Islam is
more effective than treating them with physical medicine, as is well known. 

One of the treatments prescribed in Islam is to recite the
du’aa’s narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) to relieve worries and distress, for example, the saheeh hadeeth
narrated from Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him): “There is no-one
who is afflicted by distress and grief, and says: ‘Allaahumma inni
‘abduka ibn ‘abdika ibn amatija naasyati bi yadika, maada fiyya hukmuka,
‘adlun fiyya qadaa’uka. As’aluka bi kulli ismin huwa laka sammayta bihi
nafsaka aw anzaltahu fi kitaabika aw ‘allamtahu ahadan min khalqika aw
ista’tharta bihi fi ‘ilm il-ghayb ‘indaka an taj’al al-Qur’aana al-‘Azeema
rabee’ qalbi wa noor sadri wa jalaa’ huzni wa dhihaab hammi (O Allaah, I
am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your maidservant; my forelock is in
Your hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me
is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You have named
Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your
creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You,
that You make the Holy Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my
breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety),’ but
Allaah will take away his distress and grief.” This is one of the remedies
prescribed in sharee’ah. One may also say: “Laa ilaaha illa anta,
subhaanaka inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen (There is no god but You,
glorified (and exalted) are You, truly I have been of the wrongdoers).” [cf.
al-Anbiya’ 21:87] 

Another form of treatment is ruqya with which a person may
treat himself – which is better. The Messenger (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) used to do ruqyah for himself by reciting
al-Mi’wadhatayn (the last two soorahs of the Qur’aan) when he went to sleep,
then he would wipe his face and whatever he could of his body. Or a person
may go to someone whose religious commitment he trusts to do ruqyah for

If he wants to know more, he can refer to what the scholars
have written about du’aa’ such as al-Waabil al-Sayyib by Ibn
al-Qayyim, al-Kalim al-Tayyib by Shaykh al-Islam, al-Adhkaar
by al-Nawawi, and Zaad al-Ma’aad by Ibn al-Qayyim.

Fataawa Islamiyyah, vol. 4, p. 465-467.
