Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Salaam I am a Muslim revert and I suffer from PTSD and BiPolar due to past abuse, I also have physical illnesses and I have missed many of my salah times, you see I have servere depression most of the time and I get lazy I feel so guilty and I ask allaahs forgiveness. I live alone in an area where there are very few Muslims. I'm not a young woman anymore so I live in sheltered housing. I ask dua to find other revert sisters to at least talk to on the phone. I would be greatfull for any advice ws from your sister in Islam

May Allah cure you and protect you, as for your Salah what you can do is to join together I mean join Dhuhur with Asar or join Asar with Dhuhur depending when you feel well at each time and do the same thing with Maqrib and Isha, if you do this you wont miss a prayer as you have a valid reason to do so, Allah says, [Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do] [29 v45] Allah here tells us to establish as much as we can to act on the orders of Allah and then Allah singles out Salah to show us how great it is that is why Allah says here, [the remembrance of Allah is greater] and then Allah ends the verse with, [And Allah knows that which you do] My dear sister Allah knows and sees you and is aware of your situation, therefore, your never alone all you have to do is to please Allah and Allah will bring light in to your heart and will give you what you are searching for and one of the ways of pleasing Allah is as Allah says, [Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured] [13 v28] is to remember Allah with your tun and heart at all time to do dikr as it will lighten your soul and will bring peace to your heart and it is the only way to get rid of stress and the like of it.

Also Allah says, [Those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract] [13 v20] this is also one of other ways of pleasing Allah and that is to uphold what you have promised Allah when you took the Shahadah and that is as Allah says, [And those who join that which Allah has ordered to be joined and fear their Lord and are afraid of the evil of [their] account] [13 v21] and also upon this you have to be as Allah says, [Who have been patient and upon their Lord rely] [29 v59] be Petain with what you are going through as it is test from Allah and also to get rid of your pass sins and I promise you if you remember Allah much your stress will go as Allah Has promised when He says here, [Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah]

My dear sister may Allah enlighten your soul with peace and happiness for the rest of your days and may He give you a better understanding of my own writing and as a guide and an advise to you, please Allah and Allah will give you as you wish Insha'Allah. Allah knows best.
