Muslims view on mental illness.
Quran 64:11 "No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah-He will guide his heart and
Allah is knowing of all things."
Mental illness stigma continues to be a "Major" barrier for individuals with mental illness in the Muslim community.
Mental illness may also be perceived as a test or punishment from God. It also may be seen as
an opportunity to remedy disconnection from Allah or a lack of faith through regular prayer and
a sense of self-responsibility.
Hummm that sound so familiar....
You wonder with the latest NY bombing and other attacks, maybe mental issues.
