ASA,

Has it happened to you that when you make sins(like leaving salah out of laziness or sometimes forget, other sins) you get depressed? Then when you make tawbah and pray again you get happy and content? Today was a bad day for me(due to many sins I made today that I repented from) and I was depressed and everything, I turned off the computer and made repentence and prayed my isha salah and now I am so happy in my heart. This is not the first time it happens, it happens on and off. I really need to stop do sins, its so difficult. Has this happened to you?

Based upon personal experience, yeah. They may give you temporary enjoyment but it doesn't last, the happiness only lasts when you live a righteous life, even then you may be tested and things may not go the way you want but at least your not losing your akhira in the process.

this is related to human psyche. when u set a goal for urself and u achieve it, u will be happy and if else that depress u.
being muslim, our main goal is to please Allah swt so if we do some sin, that depress us and if we repent it give us release. its a sign of good muslim and strong iman. bcz its said that momin feel a sin like a montain falling on him and munafiq (hypocrite) took sins very light and he/she feel no shame for his/her sins.

I think it leads to depression if you have strong Imaan.

I agree, when we please Allah, we will become happy and content.
Although it seems hard, we all make mistakes but repenting is the key.
Whenever your about to commit a sin, remember the moment when your in front of Allah and your life is being played infront of you. Your the one deciding how the "movie" ends.

it depends on the faith you have in your hearth and how close you are to Allah. For example if you have children they do wrong things, you will punish them but still 'love' them and want them to change their ways and become close again.
When someone of weak faith sins shaytaan make sit all fair seeming unto them, he gives them a reason to not feel guilty, he tells them you HAVE to do this and that sin, because there is no choice or it is better, or beause he never liked you anyway, or they deserve it etc... So a disbeliever will have little guilt in fact he will only see the reward in the sin.

A muslim or believer in God will feel guilty and scared due to the faith in their heart and their heart which tells them it is taking them away from Allah, also you will also see some of the reward of the sin but the faith will help overcome and fight back.

Depression from this kind of thing shows that you are happier when you are closer to Allah and sinning takes you away form Allah and depression is the side effect. So stop sinning and return to the right path

Walaikum Asalam

It shows your repentance is sincere, and that you truly regret committing the action.

Every Muslim should experience this when they sin.
