Assalamu Calaykum,

I have a friend who has anxiety and fear and just wanted you to hear me out.

She feels very lonely and vulnerable and doesn't want to interact with anyone, this has been happening for the past week and doesn't want to tell anyone how she feels and she locks herself in her room away from society and away from anyone even her own family.

She just cries about it and has panic attack for a good 10mins. Its even worse she cannot sleep, she tries to sleep and when she does try she gets nightmares. She feels very alone and that she doesn't want to live the next day at all. She hasn't gotten out of her house since last week and really feels down. She feels that she is scared, she isn't going to make it, she feels like there's no point of life. Like VERY low. As in she doesn't live properly anymore.

Ive told her to strengthen her bond with the Quran and also to do her prayers too aswell. Gave her some duas to read aswell. I cannot directly help as I don't live with her but I check with her older sister who's my bestfriend. I also wanted to ask you guys to keep her in your duas seriously. Its really heartbreaking to see someone who you know facing a difficult time.
Please remember her and constantly pray for her welfare inshaAllah.

Jazakallahu khairan for hearing me out. May Allah grant you the best success and health

Has your friend been to their GP?

Is something happening or has something happened in their life to bring these thoughts about?

She has been to the GP and then she is being booked with a counselling service. And im not very sure, she isn't being open about these things. Its been damaging her for a year now, but only got worse now

Forgive me for asking, but what happened a year ago, that has made her like this?

She is in my prayers.
Blessings,
Eric

Tell her to read Qur'an with meaning, to understand it - it will soothe her heart and her anxiety will dissipate - guarantee it.

So keep reminding her she has Allah and to turn to Allah but also be there for her, even if she may seem silent and distance. Also make sure she knows she has a support system and that she's filled with love.

Take it from someone who gets panic attacks & is anxious all the time.

Please keep us updated sister and Ya Rab it turns out well for her and her health gets better ya Rab

Ameen

Allah yejazeeki kul Khair
Yes well said! Im keeping this in mind, ive told her ill message her everyday to keep in contact with her, and she said that thats good.
So inshaAllah keep her in your prayers

Im not actually sure. Its quite absurd. She had gotten it and when she first understood she's had it she's been dealing with it as something she can control. But then only now is she realising its getting worse and she needs counselling and that type of help.
