Mental health during the lockdown

19th Jun 2020

Sir, a good timely guiding piece on mental health particularly during the present lockdown. (‘Maintaining good mental health during Coronavirus lockdown’, The Muslim News, May 23)
The mental health very much depends on physical health — both of which are nourished well by Spiritual devotion. The role of religion cannot over-emphasized especially that of Islam which teaches us to have patience and to live a well-balanced life in piety and contentment without being overwhelmed by the periodical visitation of any calamity such as the Covid-19.
No doubt the present lockdown is harmful to mental health for many but it has some positives such as looking leisurely at ourselves and having for us some rare quality times which are conducive to sustain and enhance our mental health aided by healthy activities, physical exercise and regular religious prayers to Almighty Allah.
Yours,
Mohammed Zaman
