According to the traditions of the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family)
Psychotherapy by remembering and praying to God
Worshiping God persistently, remembering him at any time, asking for forgiveness and praying to him, makes human closer to God and creates the feeling of being in God's protection and care. Worshiping enhances hope and forgiveness in human and provokes satisfaction and comfort in his soul. Allah Transcendent has said:
“Those who believe and whose hearts are calmed by remembering God, know that hearts will be calmed by remembering God.” (1)
"... And remember Allah a lot so that you get salvation." (2)
"So, remember me so that I remember you." (3)
Prophet (peace be upon him) also noted the importance of establishing peace by remembering God in the human’s soul. For example, prophet says in a Hadith:
"When some people sit and pray God, angels embrace them and God’s mercy surrounds them. Peace will be on them and God remembers those who remember Him." (4)
In a hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him) it is said that:
"Allah Transcendent says: I am in a way that my servants thinks of me and whenever he remembers me, I will be with him. If he remembers me in his heart, I will remember him in my heart too. If he remembers me in a group, I will remember them in a better group. If he comes closer as the size of one palm, I will get closer to him as the size of step. If he comes a step closer, I will get a kilometer closer to him. If he walks to me, I will run to him." (5)
Remembering God gives life to the souls and strengthens hope for God’s mercy and forgiveness and creates the feeling of happiness in individuals. Abu Musa Ash'ari narrated a hadith from the prophet (peace be upon him):
“He who remembers his God and he who doesn't are like the living and the dead individual.” (6)
In another tradition of this hadith, it is said that:
"A house in which God is remembered and a house in which God is not are like the living and the dead individual.” (7)
Remembering and praising God elevates the position of a person to his God, adds to his good deeds, forgives his sins and releases him from feeling sinful which makes him sad and anxious. Sa'd ibn Abi Waqqas says that we were with the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) and the Prophet said these words:
"Is any one of you unable to earn thousand rewards in a day? One asked: how can we gain a thousand rewards? He said for a hundred tasbih (praising God), there will be a thousand rewards or a thousand sins will be forgiven.” (8)
In another hadith, the Prophet has said:
"God has some angels who pass the streets and looks for those who remember God and when they find some people praying God, they call: "Come and get your needs." Then they get those people under their wings. God- who is omniscient- asks: what do my servants say? The angels answer: They praise you for your greatness and purity. God asks “Have they seen me?”. The angles answer “No, they haven’t seen you.” God asks “what would have they done if they had seen me?” The angels answer “If they had seen you, they would have prayed you more.” God asks “what do they want?” The angels say “They want your heaven.” God asks “Have they seen it?” The angels say “No, Oh Lord, They haven’t seen it.” God asks “What would have happened if they had seen it?” The angels say “If they had seen it, they would have been more willing and greedier for it.” God asks "What do they run from to my refuge?” The angels say “from the flames of hell.” God asks “Have they seen it?” The angels answer “No, They haven’t seen it.” God asks "What would have they done if they had seen it?” The angles answer "If they had seen it, they would have run from it.” God Says “Witness that I forgave them!” One of the angels says “Someone is among them and he is not like them, he has come for his a need.” God says “They are together, and he won’t be deprived because of being among these servants.” (9)
The Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) taught many prayers to his companions and reminded them of their great value and impact on gaining rewards and forgiveness and entering heaven. Therefore, remembering God and worshiping him with the prayers which our prophet (peace be upon him and his family) has recommended heals the feeling of sin and the anxiety caused by it.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Whoever says 33 times “sobhan allah” and 33 times “ahamdulillah”, 33 times “Allah o Akbar” and 100 times “la ilaha illa allah …." his sins will be erased at the end of his prayer, even if he has a lot of sins." (10)
In another hadith he said:
"Whoever says:" لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريک له له الملک و له الحمد و هو علي کل شي ء قدير " A hundred times every day, it is equivalent to releasing ten slaves, a hundred rewards will be written for him and a hundred sins of his will be erased and he will be protected against Satan from morning untill night and no one’s deed will be better than his, except for he who has said these words more than him. And whoever says: "Subhan allah va behamdeh” a hundred times every day, his sins will be forgiven even if a lot. (11)
Tamim Dari narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Anyone who says a dozen times:" اشهد ان لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريک له الهاً واحداً احداً صمداً لک يتّخذ صاحبه و لا ولداً و لکم يکن له کفواً احد ", God will writes forty thousand rewards for him." (12)
Ali (pbuh) also narrated that Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) said to me:
"Do you want me to teach you the words to say so that God forgives you, even though you are forgiven. Say: لا اله الا الله العليُّ العظيم، لا اله الا الحليم الکريم، لا اله الا الله سبحان الله ربّ العرش العظيم، الحمد لله ربّ العالمين". (13)
Ubadah ibn Samit also narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Whoever wakes up at night and says: "لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريک له، له الملک و له الحمد و هو علي کل شي ء قدير، الحمد الله و سبحان الله و الله اکبر و لا حول و لا قوة الا بالله," Then says: "Forgive me God”, or prays for something and his prayer will be fulfilled and if he performs wudu (ablution) and says prayers, his prayers will be accepted." (14)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) taught many prayers and remembrances (zikr) to his companions. These prayers and remembrances improves the relationship with God and closeness to Him, it makes him always remember God at any time and feel the glory of his Lord's mercy and always hopes for his mercy and glory in everyday life and fulfilling his needs. Consequently, the soul is full of joy and satisfaction and they will have a sense of peace and security around them.
Psychotherapy with Quran
The best kind of zikr is reading Quran, because reading Quran has wonderful impact on treatment of heart and mental improvement. God Almighty says:
"And We send down of the Qur'an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss." (15)
"O mankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers". (16)
"Say, "It is, for those who believe, a guidance and cure." (17)
When man reads Quran with devotion and full attention to God, peace will come to him and will be surrounded by angels from every side and also God's mercy. "
In a Hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"If some people in a house from Gods' houses (mosques) read Quran and discuss about it, peace will be upon them and mercy will surround them, angels will embrace them and God is among those who remember him. " (18)
Reading Quran causes forgiveness and adds to good deeds, and strengthen the hope to go to heaven. Hence the anxiety of guilt will be removed. In a hadith, the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Whoever reads a letter from Quran, there will be is a good deed for him and every good deed will be tenfold. I don’t say “ALM” is a letter, but A is one letter, L is one letter and M is one letter. "(19)
Abu Amameh says he heard the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) saying:
"Read Qur'an! because Qur'an intercedes (shafaa'ah) for Qur'an readers." (20)
In another hadith from the prophet, he says:
"There is a Surah (chapter) in Quran which has 30 verses and intercedes for its reader in a way that he will be forgiven. That Surah is Surah "Al-Mulk” (21)
Anas narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"Whoever recites Surah Al-Ikklas (Qul Huwallahu Ahad…) two hundred times a day his fifty years of sin will be forgiven unless he has a debt". (22)
In another hadith, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) has said that:
"Whoever, when going to bed, sleeps on his right hand and Surah Al-Ikklas recites a hundred times, God will tell him on the Day of Resurrection: Come to heaven with your right hand!.” (23)
These hadiths that remind us of the influence of reading Quran on forgiveness and releasing from hell and entering heaven, indicate that reading Quran is a useful treatment for mental anxiety caused by the feeling of guilt. Reading Quran not only heals the anxiety caused by feeling guilty, but also heals all kinds of stresses and mental anxieties.
For example, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) cured insanity by Quran. Ubay ibn Ka'b says:
"I was with the Prophet (peace be upon him) that a nomad came and said: O Messenger of Allah, I have a brother who suffers from inside. “What kind of pain does he have?” said the Prophet. “insanity” said the man. “Bring him to me,” Said the prophet. The man brought his brother and placed him in front of the prophet. The prophet (Peace be upon him and his family) sheltered him by reading Al-Hamd, the first four verses of A;-Baqara and these two verses:" و الهکم اِله واحد و ..." and Ayatul Kursi (Al-Baqarah [2:255]) and the last three verses of surah Baqara and the verse: " شهدالله اَنّه لا اله الّا هو ..." from surah Ale Imran and the verse “انّ ربّکم...” from Al-Araf and the last verse of surah Al-Mu'minun " فتعالي الله الملک الحقّ..." and the verse of " و انّه تعالي جدّ ربنّا..." From the surah Al-Jinn and the first ten verses of As-Saffat and last three verses of surah Al-Hashr and surah Al-Ikhlas and Mauzatain (Surah), the man stood up as if he never had insanity. (24)
The fact is that Quran not only is a therapy for mental illnesses but also heals physical illnesses. Abu Sa`id al-Khudri said:
"Some of the companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) went to visit Arab tribes and asked them to receive them, but that tribe didn’t. At this time, the leader of the tribe was bitten by a snake. They did everything to treat him but it was useless. One of them said: It’s good to go to those who came here, maybe they can do something. So, they went to them and said: Our leader is bitten, we did everything to cure him but it was useless. Does anyone of you have something to cure him? Someone said: Yes, I pray but because you didn’t receive us, I won't pray unless you pay for it. They agreed to give him a herd of sheep. That man spit on the leader and said Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin. Soon the leader was cured and started to walk. That tribe paid the man. One of the passengers said: Share it. The man said: Don’t do this until we go to the prophet and tell him the story and see what he orders. So they went to the prophet (peace be upon him and his family) and told him the story. the prophet asked “How did you know it was a spell?”. Then he said “It is a good offer, share it. (25)
Ibn Abi Shaybah narrated that Abdullah ibn Masud said:
"Prophet was saying prayers in the mosque when a scorpion bit him. He said "God damn the scorpion which bites prophet and non-prophet". Then he asked for a bottle of salty water and put the bitten part in the salty water and said Al-Iklas and the Mauzatain then the pain was gone." (26)
Ibn Mājah in his book, Sunan Ibn Mājah, from Ali (peace be upon him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him and his family) said: "Quran is the best medicine." (27)
This hadith shows that Quran is the cure of all diseases, both psychological and physical.
Psychotherapy with prayer
Prayer (Dua) is a kind of worship and has the same rewards as worship. It is narrated from An-Numan bin Bashir that the prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Dua is the same as worship", the Prophet then recited this verse: "And your Lord says 'Call upon Me; I will respond to you.' Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible." (28)
Prayer is a mental relaxation and heals sadness, and anxiety, because the prayer hopes that God accepts his prayers and God said these words:
" And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me." (29)
And the prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"Your great God is dignified and modest and shies from the fact that His servant raises his hands to the sky and He does not answer him.” (30)
Hoping for answer from God lessens the prayer’s sadness and sorrow and gives him the strength to be patient and creates a feeling of mental comfort in him, because the faithful knows- because he accepts what the prophet said- when he prays, God accept his prayer or prevents disastera before coming, or saves rewards for the dooms day or forgives his sins. So, praying is always and at any time good and useful in this world and in the other world. Prayers' hope for being accepted by God lessens the sorrow and grief sand creates a feeling of satisfaction and mental peace in him. Ubada ibn as-Samit narrated that the prophet (PBUH) said:
"There is no Muslim on earth who prays to God unless God accept his prayer or prevents him from a disaster and evil on the condition that he has not prayed for a sin or disconnection from relatives.” A man from the crowd said: "So we pray a lot". “And God will accept more.” Said the prophet. (31)
In another hadith from the prophet it is said:
"Praying is useful for the sent disaster and not sent. So, O servants, pray to God." (32)
In a hadith of the Prophet (PBUH), we read:
"Whenever a man prays to God, He accepts his prayer, He gives him a reward in this world or saves it for the afterlife day or forgives his sins, on the condition that he does not pray for a sin or breaking the relationship with relatives or he has not hurried.” (33)
Salman narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
"Nothing stops events [from God] except praying. And nothing prolongs life but good deeds." (34)
The Prophet (PBUH) has taught his companions to treat a variety of mental anxiety and distress, such as sadness, anxiety and insomnia and fear in sleep and forgetfulness, here are some points we mention:
A. The treatment of sadness and anxiety and grief by prayer
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) for the treatment of sorrow and grief, anxiety of his companions taught them a special prayer and they were healed by these prayers. For instance, Abdullah ibn Masud narrated the prophet said:
"Everyone who suffers from anxiety and sorrow and says: اللهم اني عبدک، ابن عبدک، ابن امتک ناصيتي بيدک، ماضٍ في حکمک، عدل في قضاؤک، أسألک بکلّ اسم هولک سميت به نفسک، او علّمته احداً من خلقک، او انزلته في کتابک، أو استأثرت به في علم الغيب عندک، أن تجعل القرآن ربيع قلبي و نور صدري و جلاء حزني و ذهاب همّي الا اذهب الله همّه و حزنه، و أبدله مکانه فرحاً". The Prophet (PBUH) was asked: O Messenger of Allah, Shall we learn this prayer?” “Yes, anyone who hears it should learn it," He said (35)
Abu Saeed Khedri says:
One day the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) entered the mosque and saw a man from the Ansar called Abu Umama, “O Abu Umama, How come you are sitting in the mosque in a time other than prayer time?” he said. “O Messenger of God, sorrow and debt does not leave me.” Said Abu Amameh. “Do you want to learn a sentence that when you say it, God removes your sorrow and your debt will be paid off?” He replied.
“Yes, O Messenger of Allah.” He said. “Every morning and evening Say:" اللهم انّي اعوذبک من الهمّ و الحزن و اعوذبک من العجز و الکسل، و اعوذبک من الجبن و البخل، و اعوذ بک من غلبة الدين و قهر الرجال"
Abu Umamah says that he did it and God removed his sorrow and his debts were paid. (36)
In another hadith, the Prophet (PBUH) said:
"Here’s a prayer for removing grief: " اللهم رحمتک ارجو فلا تکلني الي نفسي طرفة عين، و اصلح لي شأني کله، لا اله الّا أنت" (37)
In another hadith it is stated that:
"The prayer that Jonah said in the belly of the fish was:" لا اله الا أنت سبحانک انّي کنت من الظالمين ", Every Muslim who says this prayer for something, it will be accepted. God will remove his sorrow and this is what my brother Jonah said." (38)
Ibn Abbas said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
"Whoever is very sad and worried, should say a lot: " لا حول و لا قوه الا بالله " (39)
In another narration from Ibn Abbas, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "لا اله الا الله العظيم الحليم، لا اله الا الله ربّ العرض العظيم، لا اله الا الله ربّ السموات و ربّ الارض و ربّ العرش الکريم" (40)
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would ask God for forgiveness a lot and would advise his companions to do so, because asking God for forgiveness removes sorrow and saves people from problems. Ibn Abbas narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) has said:
"Whoever always asks Allah for forgiveness, Allah would give him a way out of the dilemmas and removes their grieves and send them money (food) from where they cannot even guess". (41)
These prayers and prayers like these which are narrated by some hadith books can cure sorrows and worries, because they contain mental cures which can guarantee healing human from these mental problems. Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya has analyzed these hadiths and has exploited the mental cures within them and has mentioned some of them as following:
1. Tawhid Rububiyyah. (Allah is the only Sustainer)
2. Tawhid Uluhiyyah. (There is no god but Allah)
3. Tawhid of practice and belief
4. Knowing God as infallible from cruelty or punishing his servants for no reason.
5. Confession of servant to being faulty.
6. Seeking nearness to God through the most popular things to him in other words, the names and attributes, especially the attribute "Hayyu Qayyum" (The Living and The Subsisting) which are the most comprehensive divine names and attributes.
7. Taking refuge to the Lord rather than others.
8. Expressing hope to God.
9. Trust in God and entrust everything to him and confess that his willing is in his hands and he can control it as he wants and God’s sentence is crucial and whatever the sentence is, it is just and fair.
10. His heart wanders in Quran's realm and Quran is his guideline and light in the darkness of doubts and lusts, and Quran calms him down against any disaster and heals his illnesses, removes sorrow and heals worries and anxieties.
11. Asking God for forgiveness.
12. Repentance and returning to God.
13. Denying the force and power of self and others, because God is the source of all power and strength. (42)
Ibn Qayyem, names two other cures in addition to the spiritual cure for the treatment of anxiety, worry, sadness: "Jihad" and the other one is saying prayers, because in some hadiths it has been mentioned that Jihad and prayers are effective in the treatment of anxiety and sorrow. We have previously investigated the importance of prayers in the treatment of anxiety.
According to him, the greatest spiritual [or mental] disease is: "polytheism and sins and negligence and inattention to the things that God loves and distrust in God and not relying on other than him and unhappiness of fates from him and having doubt about his promises. If you pay attention to spiritual diseases you will notice that the cause of them are such things mentioned above. Therefore, the only cure for spiritual diseases is the things which are mentioned in prophetic treatments and are the antidotes for those illnesses because every illness is cured by an antidote and the health will be maintained. So, the health of soul will be maintained with prophet’s advices (peace be upon him and his family) and the illnesses will be cured by antidotes." (43)
(B) the treatment of insomnia and fear in sleep by praying
The Prophet (PBUH) has cured insomnia and fear in sleep by a prayer. Bordeh says:
"Khalid ibn Walid Makhzumi complained to the Prophet (PBUH) that every night he had insomnia and couldn’t sleep. The Prophet (PBUH) said to him: When you go to bed, say: "اللهم ربّ السموات السبع و ما اظلّت و ربّ الارضين و ما اقلّت، و ربّ الشياطين و ما اضلّت، کن لي جاراً من شرّ خلقک کلّهم جميعاً أن يَفرُطَ عَليَّ أَحَدُ، أو أن يَبغي عَليَّ، عَزَّ جارکُ وَ جَلَّ ثَناؤکَ، وَ لا اِله غَيرُکَ، لا إلهَ الّا أَنتَ" (44)
Amr bin Shuaib narrated that the prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"If any of you sees a nightmare, say:" أعوذ بکلمات الله التّامات من غضبه و عقابه و شرّ عباده و من همزات الشياطين و ان يحضرون ", in this case you will be safe in your dreams." (45)
C. Treatment of feeling guilty by prayers and praising God (tasbih)
The best cure for feeling guilty is praying and praising God, especially at night. Muslim ibn al-Harith at-Tamimi says:
"The Prophet of Allah (PBUH) secretly said to me, when you finish your evening prayers say for seven times:" اللهمَّ أجرني من النّار " (Oh God, save me from the flames). If you say so and you die at that night, you will be rewarded. And when you say it after Morning Prayer, if you die on that day, you will be safe from fire of hell. (46)
Ma'az ibn Anas narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said:
"Anyone who eats food, it's better that he says: "الحمد الله الذي اطعمني هذا الطعام و رزقنيه من غير حول منّي و لا قوّة غفر له ما تقدّم من ذنبه" (47)
Ma'az ibn Jabal narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
"Everyone whose last sentence is There is no god but Allah will go to heaven." (48)
Anas ibn Malik narrated that he was sitting behind the Prophet (PBUH) on a camel that the prophet said: "O Ma'az ibn Jabal". Ma'az said: "Yes, O Messenger of Allah, command us!" These sentences were told three times. Then he said “whoever testifies (says) there is no Ggod but Allah and Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, God will save him from fire.”. “O Messenger of God, Shall I say these to people to make them happy?” said Ma'az. “In this way they will be lazy,” Said the prophet. Ma'az didn’t say these until his death so as not to commit a sin." (49)
Ubada ibn as-Samit said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
"Whoever says there is no God but Allah and Mohammad is the prophet of Allah, God will forbid fire on him." (50)
Undoubtedly, Muslims who say prayers and praise God, according to these hadiths, he inevitably gets rid of the feeling of guilt and anxiety and hopes for pardon and forgiveness from God and this causes happiness and joy and peace in his soul.
Psychotherapy by repentance
One of the most important cures for the treatment of guilt is repentance, because God has promised to forgive any guilty person, even if his sins are a lot. So, repentance gives hope for salvation and attaining God's satisfaction with his life and consequently, releases him from the feeling of guil that causes anxiety and mental pains. God has said:
"Say, O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."(51)
"The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise." (52)
"The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise". (53)
"And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves [by transgression], remember Allah and seek forgiveness for their sins - and who can forgive sins except Allah? - and [who] do not persist in what they have done while they know. * Those - their reward is forgiveness from their Lord and gardens beneath which rivers flow [in Paradise], wherein they will abide eternally; and excellent is the reward of the [righteous] workers." (54)
Also many hadiths indicate that the repentance of sins, removes the previous sins. For instance, Abdullah ibn Masud has narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
"Everyone who says: "اَستَغفِرُاللهَ الذّي لا اِلهَ اِلا هُوَ الحَيُّ القَيّومُ وَ اَتُوبُ اِلَيهِ"
His sins will be forgiven even if he had escaped from Jihad. (55)
One factor that reduces the degree of guilt of a Muslim is that he believes human is inherently incapable and is subject to error and guilt, however as long as he confesses to his sins and asks for forgiveness and repents, there is no reason to continuously bother himself with the feeling of guilt, he has to have hope for God’s forgiveness. In a hadith by Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) it is said:
"I swear to my soul which is in His hand, if you didn’t commit sins, God would take you and place you with other people who commit sins and repent so that God forgives them. (56)
In another hadith Anas has narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
"All human beings are to error, and the best wrongdoers are those who repent." (57)
God loves his people's repentance. He says:
"Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves."(58)
God becomes happy by repentance of His servants. Abdullah ibn Mas'ud said: the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) stated:
"God becomes happy by the repentance of his servants, more than becoming happy of a man who is in a desert and has a camel and has water and food on the camel, puts his head on the ground and sleep, and when he wakes up, he sees the camel is gone; he starts to look for the camel and when the thirst and hunger makes him suffer, he says: I will go the same place I was before, I sleep until I die and he sleeps to die, but he wakes up and suddenly sees the camel next to him and the food and water is still on the camel. Yes, God will be happier than this man by repentance from his servants.” (59)
Therefore, the faithful has to have faith in his God’s mercy and be hopeful that God will accept his repent and He will forgive him. In this way, he will be relieved and he will feel pace and security. Anas says that he heard the prophet (peace be upon him and his family) said:
God has said: "O, Son of Adam! I will forgive your sins as long as you call my name and have hope for me. If your sins become a lot, and you ask for forgiveness, I will forgive you. If you commit sins as much as all the lands of the Earth, and you come to me without considering any partners for me, I will forgive you as much.” (60)
Jabir ibn Abdullah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said these words three days before his death:
"None of you should die but while trusting God.” (61)
It is clear from the above Quranic verses that repentance is a curative treatment for anxiety associated with guilt. Anxiety is, as we know, is the origin of mental illness and the goal of therapy which it seeks to achieve, in fact, is the elimination of the consequences of this anxiety and getting rid of it. Different schools of psychotherapy, used many methods to solve anxiety but repentance, as it is clear from the past content, is the best way to treat it.
