what is anxious? who is anxious person? How to treat anxiety?

According to the verses of the Holy Quran, one of the characteristics of every human being is that he is anxious. God expresses this anxiety in two different ways.

 إِنَّ ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا

Indeed, humankind was created anxious 70:19

إِذَا مَسَّهُ ٱلشَّرُّ جَزُوعًۭا

distressed when touched with evil 70:20

وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ ٱلْخَيْرُ مَنُوعًا

and withholding when touched with good 70:21

So that it doesn’t matter what bad or good things happen. In both cases, the human ego causes worry about the results. But the question is, what is the cause of this problem?

What is the root of anxiety in the human ego?

Due to the presence of 2 parameters in a person, the feeling of anxiety increases in him, and these two reasons are 1. greed and 2. fear.


How to recognize a anxious person?

anxious person eats fast. he is affected by various issues in life. he is person who does not experience the feeling of liberation at any point in his life. A person who is extreme in consuming anything. And many other cases. but where do you think this level of fear and greed in human existence comes from?


Belief in scarcity. An anxious person, whether it seems good or bad, in both situations, has a conversation with himself that takes him in a direction that makes the belief of lack, stronger and stronger in his being. If a person does not find the existence of this belief within himself and does not solve its root, with age, this belief will strengthen and can affect all aspects of his life. An anxious person can quickly reinforce other moral traits that harm him.


But where does this lack come from? A disturbed and anxious person feels empty inside. And this causes him to imagine the event, the situation, the meal, or anything that can be big in his mind at the moment.

He magnifies food offerings in his mind and eats them greedily. The weekend exam looms large in him. An ordinary business appointment becomes the most crucial appointment in his mind. He cares too much about other people’s judgments about him.

What is the attention of a anxious person and what are its effects?

In this way, all the focus and attention of an anxious person in every moment of his life is directed to a particular matter that is not very important in the end.  And for this reason, when an unpleasant thing happens, the anxious person becomes more bored and annoyed because of the kind of look he has and his expectations from the details of life. in the other hand when there are positive events in his life, he gets sad because he thinks that this moment is not forever and will end. because of this characteristic, in the end, he cannot use any of the moments of his life as he should enjoy them.

What other characteristics does a anxious person form in his existence?

Another damage of anxiety is that the anxious person becomes selfish in his relationships over time. So that he can no longer understand the feelings of others in his life correctly, it makes the people around him lose heart, and eventually, he becomes more alone. Another disadvantage is that disturbed people are much more likely to become addicted to anything than people who have been able to cure this moral trait for whatever reason in their lives. And again, the reason is that a anxious person cannot enjoy all aspects of his life at all times and always sees the world with a filter of deficiency. For this reason, he becomes dependent on things that are always at his disposal and can forget his anxiety at the moment.

There are many examples of the many problems that people get from anxiety. But how can we cure anxious person?  God has fully explained to us the way to cure this moral trait in the Holy Quran.


إِلَّا ٱلْمُصَلِّينَ

except those who pray 70:22

ٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَاتِهِمْ دَآئِمُونَ

consistently performing their prayers 70:23

وَٱلَّذِينَ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ حَقٌّۭ مَّعْلُومٌۭ

and who give the rightful share of their wealth  70:24


لِّلسَّآئِلِ وَٱلْمَحْرُومِ

to the beggar and the poor  70:25

وَٱلَّذِينَ يُصَدِّقُونَ بِيَوْمِ ٱلدِّينِ

and who ˹firmly˺ believe in the Day of Judgment 70:26


What is the treatment for anxiety?

1.The first and best way of treatment is to get close to the One God as much as you can and know.

Communication with God fills the emptiness inside of man. Contact with God allows a person to control himself in any situation. A person with a deep relationship with God spends every moment of his life with him, which makes him full of light and love. All human greed and fear are controlled in the best possible way by God. Because there are two parameters of greed and fear in every human being, these two cannot disappear in anyone, and only these two can be controlled and directed. Only by placing these two parameters in the right direction can they be controlled in the best way. The right direction is to move toward God.


  1. Praise your God.

By doing this, you make God more prominent and more extensive in your being, and this makes you less affected by various events in life, and you only move forward in your life in the best way and be in the best state of mind. By praising God, you avoid magnifying anything in yourself and remind yourself to remain in your best emotional state.


  1. Give some of what you like to others before consuming it.

for example, if you have a strong liking for a portion of delicious food and want to eat it regardless of anything else, try giving it to others to Remind yourself that the food is not the best and it is finished. it is life in all dimensions that is great and enjoyable. You have to believe that it is not the things and facilities that make you happy, but life itself that you should be happy for.


4.Magnify only one thing: God in your mind.

in this case, God will control your fear and greed towards him. Allah is the Lord of the whole world, and He is the best of all creatures. Considering him who is the best, you have directed your greed and fear in the best possible way. You can use ( ) to understand this issue better.
