The Antidote To Angst

The natural state of human beings who are not aligned spiritually with the celestial realm is angst – an existential dread that takes hold, a dissatisfaction with the way things are on earth. Some even designate our own modern materialistic epoch as the age of anxiety.

The antidote to such a condition is true faith and the knowledge that everything comes from God. When we are afflicted with loss of life, limb, or property, we say, “To God we belong, and to God we return” (2:156).⁣

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
