Prayer Request: Brother who has severe mental illness
Prayer Request: Prayer brother who has severe mental illness



My brother has been in hospital for 6 months now with a very severe mental illness. He was first diagnosed with severe depression and has been on medication although we have been seeking spiritual treatment.

The main thing is, whenever dusk starts, he gets very scared and agitated and can’t sleep at nights and whenever he does, he has terrible dreams. He is also hallucinating and hearing things which aren’t there. He has become so bad, he self harms and has tried to commit suicide whenever he can. We do try and make him recite Qur’an and partake in Dhikr of Allah, but he says whenever he does, he gets worse.

It is known the medication has made him even bad with all the harsh side effects but we just want him to stop getting scared and stop hearing and seeing things.

My sincere thanks and appreciation for all


`Alaykum Salam,

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham is praying for your and your brother in sha Allah. Whenever with him, recite Fatiha in your heart and salawat. If possible, give him dhikr water or water over which was read Fatiha 40x after fasting a Monday or Thursday. Give sadaqa and feed the people on his behalf.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
