“Watch your way then, as a cautious traveler; and don’t be gazing at that mountain or river in the distance, and saying ‘How shall I ever get over them?’ but keep to the present little inch that is before you, and accomplish that in the little moment that belongs to it.  The mountain and the river can only be passed in the same way; and, when you come to them, you will come to the light and strength that belong to them. ”

– M.A. Kelty


Dear Readers,


Please find below a wonderful article on overcoming blame through understanding.  With Eating Disorder there’s a lot to take into consideration. People try to make sense of this debilitating illness and often lay blame on each other and at the sufferer.  Playing the blame game never works. All illnesses are from God and as Islam said ‘there’s a cure for every illness’. Parents do not cause eating disorders and sufferers are not responsible for this illness either. Please keep in mind blaming each other has no role in healing of eating disorder.  We hope you’ll find the article below helpful and insightful.



Overcoming Blame












There are such a variety of routes by which individuals have a tendency to respond and see circumstances and conditions be it in the correct path, in the correct attitude or contrarily in the wrong mood. Amid vexed circumstances, it is common to be pitiful and exasperated; be it the passing of a friend or family member, being determined to have genuine disease, injury, regular fiascos or any negative occasion. Many individuals lost it and express their vexation to God. Many would curse and say all way of malice for their dilemmas. Such a variety of retrogressed in their dealings with God and give their lives for agnosticism and harams. They cast their faults at other individuals, themselves, and accuse destiny and predetermination for being the decision for them, the more reason Allah is dependably helpless before these sorts of individuals.


“It simply doesn’t bode well. Why is Allah doing this to me? In what manner can Allah permit this to happen? Haven’t I done what’s necessary? I did everything as a result of Him however this is the thing that I get. Do I merit this?”


It is anything but difficult to snap, protest and say all way of scolding articulations. Heading off to the outrageous while not willing to take God for his identity, we offer space to the most noticeably awful discipline that we feel will make us pay for those quandaries, circumstance and conditions we have gotten ourselves. Such extremes are going on yearning strike. That is, rebuffing one’s self with yearning. That at its pinnacle prompts to anorexia, bulimia et cetera. We neglect to realize that we are the sufferers and that our story never shows signs of change, trials may, however what has been can’t absolutely be rewritten yet we can discover tranquility of heart from Allah.




At the point when things are troublesome and out of our control you seek after the circumstance in which everything is secure, safe, and unsurprising. The association with God that you used to appreciate does not appear to be soothing any longer. You feel double-crossed, deserted and abused. It doesn’t appear to have any distinction whether you are appealing to Allah or not. You feel like the world has planned against you and consider Allah in charge of that damage, briefly oblivious in regards to the truth that distresses and cataclysms come to pass for everyone, even the prophets and ambassadors.


You quit setting off to the mosque. You sense that your conviction has broken. You hate religious exhortation.

The Prophet Muhammad (ṣallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was inquired,

“O Messenger of Allah, which of the general population are the most distressfully tried?”

He said:


“The Prophets, then those comparative, A man will be tried as per his level of confidence. On the off chance that his confidence is solid, he will be tried all the more seriously, and if his confidence is frail, he will be tried as per his confidence. Catastrophe will continue coming to pass for a man until he strolls on the earth with no wrongdoing on him”.


On the off chance that you are battling with this severity of heart, you are not the only one. Many individuals encounter comparative battles. As opposed to pulling without end or attempting to conceal the negative sentiments, managing the issue in a transparent way is more useful in the long haul. It may not be not kidding on the off chance that you simply have a blaze of outrage towards Allah, and after that the ways of dealing with stress kick in. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you experience difficulty minimizing the outrage, you may need to look for offer assistance. Look into has demonstrated that vexation towards God is connected with poor change in accordance with mourning, especially when the outrage stayed uncertain over the time of a year. Furthermore, all these may prompt to wretchedness, withdrawal, and a risky drop in religious confidence.


Suggestions for restoration and recuperation:




The initial segment of mending is conceding that you have an issue. Concede that you are irate if even you feel embarrassed and remorseful by it. We can never settle the irritating parts of our qualities on the off chance that we don’t recognize the issue.




Quietude is not a shortcoming. Concede that you are frail, not all things are reasonable and there are times when you have to surrender being in control and permit Allah to be the rudder and the guiding of your ship. The trial that you are confronting is not a pointer that Allah’s arrangement is an oversight, but instead it is the best confirmation that Allah is the one at work, not you. Allah underscores this in the Qur’an: 53:24-25


“Then again should man have what he wishes? Yet, to Allah has a place the last (Hereafter) and the main (the world).”

(Sūrat’l-Najm: 24-25)


Numerous ED casualties decline to get full recuperation by overlooking the remedies and recommendations of the doctors and the pastors separately. Here is an indicate where it applicable notice to all advices that will help in making recuperation feasible.


  1. Make Dua At All Time –It Is The Key To Unlock All Impossibilities


islam dua


Al-Khaṭṭābi clarifies incredibly the elements of dua’:

“The significance of du’ā’ is the hireling’s approaching his Lord for His help, and asking His constant support. Its substance is that a man demonstrates his dependence and need to Allah, and liberates himself from any power or capacity to change (any matter without anyone else’s input). This trademark is the sign of subjugation, and in it is the human accommodation”.


In this way, you truly need to continue imploring and keeping up a religious environment notwithstanding when you don’t feel like it. Notwithstanding when you are irate, compel yourself to swing back to Allah and whine your grievances to Him. After Prophet Mūsa (‘alayhi’l-salām) got away from Egypt to abstain from being murdered, he arrived in solitude in Madyan, he implored Allah: 28:24


“O my Lord! Verily, I am penniless to whatever great that you send down to me.”

(Sūrat’l-Qaṣaṣ: 24)


At the point when Prophet Ya’qub was lamenting over the destiny of Yusuf and Benyamin, he cried: 12:86


“Verily, I just whine of my despondency and distress to Allah!”

(Sūrat’l-Yūsuf: 86)


The prophets have demonstrated us idealize cases of how they swung to Allah amid serious conditions and demonstrated their need of His guide:


At the point when Prophet Ayyub’s (‘alayhi’l-salām) family and riches was detracted from him on top of his anguish from a dreadful sickness, he called to Allah: 21:83


“Verily, misfortune has harassed me, and you are the Most Merciful of each one of the individuals who are kind.”

(Sūrat’l-Anbiyā’: 83)


As opposed to being furious and cutting yourself off from Allah, swinging to Allah really assuages the trouble. Truth be told, people are wired to be like this.


Studies additionally have found that supplication was the most very embraced technique for overseeing clashes with God.


Moreover, other than serving as a way of dealing with stress and as a strategy to look for assistance from Allah so that the present mishap is lifted, du’ā’ is the main demonstration that can change Allah’s announcement. With Allah’s will, du’ā’ can repulse a future burden that may fall onto a man.


Thus, we ought not disparage the significance and need of making du’ā’. Rather, we ought to dependably genuinely request that he lift and evacuate any sufferings that have come to pass for or might come to pass for us.


  1. Re-assess your motivation of love


Remember that we don’t get to be distinctly religious and noble to be resistant from disasters. Our submission to Allah is not a pay off for Him to give us something consequently or save us from trials. Allah says in the Qur’an: 22:11


There are among men some who serve Allah, so to speak, almost there need to know where you stand and how intense you are:


In the event that great befalls them, they are, therewith, well substance; yet in the event that a trial comes to them, they turn on their confronts: they lose both this world and the Hereafter. That is the obvious misfortune. (Sūrat’l-Ḥajj: 11)


This will dependably make you acknowledge Allah and give you the permit of control over whatever that comes your direction including the dietary problem. On the off chance that your motivation of love is not coordinated towards natural circumstance it will mend you mentally, reestablish your certainty and give you rest of brain and full fixation on your voyage to recuperation. Along these lines, your issues are not any more likely of being issues.


  1. Move on – Away from The EDs and conditions that prompts to them


Managing outrage towards Allah can’t eradicate the distress, however by adapting to it fittingly, it can prompt to development in confidence and a nearer association with Allah. Changing the outrage into empathy and satisfaction is a strengthening. Trials are intended to build our versatility, and a solid adherent is better and more cherished to Allah than a powerless devotee, despite the fact that there is goodness in both.


Along these lines, you have to deal with yourself and see to it that everything about how and when you got sick are presently in the past and never to surface any longer since you are deciding to take after the manages of Allah. So the more motivation to see to it that you are


Dietary issues like prior said are not elements that are sufficient to keep us down it is possible that you are the sufferer or we are a with respect to the sufferer that we spend a large portion of our circumstances committed to their recuperation. So as sufferers don’t have to place others in chains of the duty of dealing with you generally.


In the means to recuperation, it is very suggested that you proceed onward from wherever you are –that circumstance that made them have dietary issues. Dietary problems are not affliction that are transmittable in this way, it is not reached but rather it is impacted and infused. It is a feared devil that endeavors our present story, circumstance and complexities and brings itself on the sufferer. So the capacity to proceed onward is central when in the phase of recuperation.


Life is past everything being okay, exempt from the laws that apply to everyone else of Attraction. Allah has officially composed our story and the plots in our lives. However, that does not mean we will like it. That is the reason Iman is to a great degree indispensable to clutch. So what is Iman? Jibril posed this question to Rasulullah (ṣallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) when he came as a man to instruct the associates about religion.


Also, he said, “That you assert Allah, His angels, His books, His envoys, and the Last Day, and that you confirm the Decree, the benefit of it and the terrible of it”
