Khutba: Dealing with your most difficulty day – 10 lessons from our beloved Prophet(SAW)

Stress affects everyone. Everyone of us faces stressful life situations and although stress itself is not an illness it can lead to depression, anxiety, psychosis and post-traumatic stress disorder. It’s important to know that there are ways to manage stress and Islam outlines such methods which is the topic of my khutba today.
