Being Sad In Light Of Qur’an:

Be not sad, surely Allah is with us.p (Quran 9: 40)

Sadness enervates the soul’s will to act and paralyzes the body into inactivity. Sadness prevents one from action instead of
compelling one towards it. The heart benefits nothing through grief The most beloved thing to the Devil is to make the worshipper sad in
order to prevent him from continuing on his path. Allah, the Exalted, says:

Secret counsels [conspiracies] are only from Shaytaan [Satan], in
order that he may cause grief to the believers. (Qur’an 58: 10)

Being Sad In Light Of Hadith:

In the following Hadith, the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم said:

“In a company of three, it is forbidden for two to hold
secret counsel to the exclusion of the third, since doing
so will be a cause of sadness for him.”

Contrary to what some believe (those who have an extreme ascetic bent), the believer should not seek out sadness, because
sadness is a harmful condition that afflicts the soul. The Muslim must repel sadness and fight it in any way that is permissible in our Religion.

There is no real benefit to sadness; the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم  sought refuge from it in the following supplication:

“O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from anxiety and grief”

Grief is coupled with anxiety in this Hadith. The difference between the two is that if a bad feeling is related to what is going to
happen in the future, then one is feeling anxiety. And if the cause of this feeling concerns the past, then one is feeling grief. Both of them weaken the heart, causing inactivity and a decrease in will power.

Despite what has been mentioned above, grief may sometimes be both inevitable and necessary. When they enter Paradise, its dwellers will say:

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has removed from us [all] grief} (Quran 35: 34)

This verse implies that they were afflicted with grief in this life, just as they were afflicted with other forms of hardship, both ofwhich
were out of their control. So whenever one is overcome by grief and there is no way to avoid it, one is rewarded, because grief is a form of
hardship, and the believer is rewarded for going through hardship. Nonetheless, the believer must ward off grief with supplication and other practical means.

Take A Moment To Reflect:

reflect to sadness

Let us make these supplications, their purpose being to eliminate hardship, anxiety and grief:

“There is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Ever Forbearing, the Most Great. There is none worthy of worship except
Allah, the Lord of the Tremendous Throne. There is none worthy of worship except Allah, the Lord of the Heavens, the Lord of the earth, and the Lord of the Noble Throne. O ‘ Ever-Living, and O ‘ One Who sustains and protects all that exists, there is none worthy of worship except You, and by Your mercy do we seek Your aid.”

“O’ Allah, Your mercy do I hope for; so do not leave me to myself not even for the blinking of an eye. And make well for me all
of my affairs. There is none worthy of worship except You”

“I seek forgiveness from Allah; none is worthy of worship except Him. He is the Ever-Living and the One who sustains and protects all that exists, and I turn to Him in repentance.”

“There is none worthy of worship except You, and how perfect “O’ Allah, verily I am Your slave, the son of Your slaves; my forelock is in Your hand, Your order concerning me will be executed and just is Your judgment upon me. I ask You by all of Your names that you have named Yourself with, have revealed in Your book, have taught to one of Your creation, or is in Your knowledge only (from the matters of the unseen) —make the Qur’an the spring of my heart, the light of my chest, the remover of my sadness, and the purger of my anxiety. ” you are; verily, I was among the wrongdoers.”

“O Allah, I seek refuge in you from anxiety and grief from inability and laziness, from avarice and cowardice, from being engrossed by debt, and from being overpowered by men”

“Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).”
