Assalaam'ualykum, Do you think that mental illness is running rampant in many 'islamic' groups today? I often feel that some suffer from a condition known as obessesive compulsive disorder, personality defects, and a cult like partisanship. For instance, if you sit with a DIY saudi salafi, he will feel compulsed to give a lecture about obeying rulers and attacking qutb. Or if you sit in a room with HT, and its a group of brothers just relexing, the HT will feel that this his opportunity to have whats called a 'problem solution' discussion, even though he won;t know the problem or the solution, yet he feels the urge to. How can someone recover from this mental illness, how do we save ourslves from depression and its likes. I have heard that 1 in 4 people suffer from a mental illness......But i think theres much shame in admiting it. I think a common one we face is depression.
