During a plague Hadhrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi alayh) gave the following advices. It is a unique remedy for anxiety and worries.
Hadhrat Moulana (rahmatullahi alayh) said, “The love and the greatness of Allah Ta’ala should be inculcated in our hearts.” This is a unique remedy for all types of worries and anxiety which occur due to sicknesses and plagues.
The question is how to develop love for Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? People do not possess the capability to transform overnight and abandon sins instantly. I say with trust and conviction in Allah, that we all are capable of becoming true lovers of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Once this love enters the heart, there will be no room for doubts to enter that heart. All worries and anxieties shall disappear. Any person who suffers from worries and anxiety should try this formula. Very soon his worries shall end, as long as the method prescribed is followed.
