Sometimes, life is just like a roller coaster. It can rise to the highest place and sometimes becomes in the lowest grade. Commonly people have jumped into anxiety with no reason to face it. And the worst part comes into depression. Nor depression and anxiety are better for our soul.
Depression and anxiety can come from every situation that we don’t want it. Sometimes, we face the things that not as we expected. It might cause stress for us. For some people, stress can turn into a depression.
This bad thing can make an uneasy feeling to our soul. Some ancients people look at this as the contamination of Djinn. That is why it is important to read the Quran verses to protect yourself from Djinn.
So, what should we do when things go wrong like these? The better way is you talk to someone to release it. It is better for seeking help to ease our stressful matters.
Besides, as Muslims, it is better to seek overcome through Allah by reading the Quran. And yes, there are several surahs already written in the Quran to peace your soul.
1.Surah Al Baqarah verse 286

لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللّٰهُ نَفْسًا اِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۗ
“ Allah does not burden someone’s soul beyond that it can bear..”
Based on that verse, Allah knows the capability of His believer. And all we have to do is put the trust upon Him. That is why the next verse says that we should pray upon Him.
ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَآ اِنْ نَّسِيْنَآ اَوْ اَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَآ اِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهٗ عَلَى الَّذِيْنَ مِنْ قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهٖۚ
“ O our Lord, do not rule us if we forget or we make mistakes. O our Lord, do not burden us with heavy burdens as You have burdened the people before us…”
