Depression can cause both physical and emotional effects. It can lead to feelings of sadness and cause you to withdraw from things you enjoy.

Sleep Cycle

Having depression can cause noticeable changes in your sleep habits. You may find you’re sleeping more, or you may have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. That means waking up in the morning can be a real challenge, especially if you have to get out of bed in the middle of a deep sleep. But, with the Sleep Cycle app, you may wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to start your day.

This popular app analyzes your sleep and wakes you during the lightest part of your sleep cycle. This intelligent alarm clock can detect your movement during sleep and wake you up at the optimal time during a 30-minute alarm window.

Zakat eligibility of The FYI

The Family & Youth Institute, or The FYI, is a well-known Muslim organization in the United States. It works to promote mental health and wellness by strengthening and empowering individuals, families, and communities through research and education. It has been working for many years to bring Islamic perspectives to understanding and promoting mental health in our communities.

It is dedicated to serving and supporting Muslims – safeguarding our deen, our families, and our future generations. Therefore, the work of The FYI comes in the category of ‘fi sabeelillah’ or the Path of Allah, within the eight categories where Zakat money can be used.

Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed for it and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah, and for the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah, And Allah, is Knowing and Wise.”
(Al-Tawbah 9:60)

According to scholars who widen the meaning of fee sabeelillah to include any activities that promote Islamic growth, The FYI is indeed eligible to receive part of the Zakat funds for its programs and services. I urge Muslims in America to support this organization through their donations, general charity, and through their Zakat. I ask Allah swt to strengthen and guide The FYI to continue its good work in supporting Muslims.
