Pardon the Interruption – Panic Attacks and Intrusive Thoughts

pardon forms
by lisby1

Perhaps the most troubling symptom of panic attacks and general anxiety is the intrusive thoughts that often accompany these episodes – thoughts that may persist long after the panic attack has subsided. If you or someone you love has experienced these type of thoughts, as a result of panic attacks or a larger panic disorder, you know all too well how invasive they can be, dominating every waking moment of your life, almost to the point where concentrating on anything else is next to impossible. This is a very common occurrence with panic disorder, and one we will examine a bit more closely here.

What Are Intrusive Thoughts?

Intrusive thoughts can be defined as any thoughts which you did not willfully initiate. Usually unwanted, these thoughts creep into your mind, forcing you – or so it seems to you at the time – to devote all of your energy on these unsolicited bits of information and usually causing you unnecessary or irrational worry. These intrusive thoughts take on many forms, such as excessive worrying about money, irrational thoughts about health and death, unexplained worries about loved ones, and even bizarre thoughts which can make you question your own sanity. Naturally, these thoughts can be quite disturbing, but since they have no true basis in reality, and were not initiated by you, they are often hard to stop. After all, how do you stop a thought you never meant to call to mind in the first place?

Panic Attacks and Intrusive Thoughts: The Connection

With no known cause, panic attacks are a bizarre phenomenon in and of themselves. Characterized by a sudden and overwhelming fear or dread and physical symptoms such as dizziness, shortness of breath, numbness and tingling, a panic attack can be a truly startling experience. Some are so shook up by the effects of a panic attack that they immediately assume a more dangerous health situation has occurred, and they rush themselves to the nearest hospital, convinced they have experienced a heart attack or some other medical emergency. Add intrusive thoughts into the mix and it’s easy to see why panic sufferers would go to almost any length to find relief.

So why are intrusive thoughts so prevalent in those with panic attacks?

The most honest answer is that nobody knows for sure. While in some cases these thoughts may be linked to past experiences or failures – events that left the panic sufferer subconsciously guilty – most of these intrusive thoughts are completely irrational and without any merit. For example, a perfectly healthy 35 year old man would normally not worry excessively about his own demise, but when a panic attack is experienced you can throw logic right out the window. He may not want to think about dying, but he can’t get the thought out of his head. Now try explaining that to a doctor or to your loved ones.

Intrusive thoughts can range anywhere from annoying and occasional to pervasive and constant, and when they reach this latter stage they can be quite debilitating, making it extremely difficult to complete even the simplest tasks or form any type of mutual relationships.

A Final Thought: Intrusive Thoughts and Distraction

The best defense against intrusive thoughts during a panic attack is a distraction of some kind – something to take the focus away from the troubling thoughts. This distraction could be a song on the radio, a calculation you do in your head or anything else that will fully hold your attention until the intrusive thought passes. Exercise is one of the best forms of distraction, for not only does it involve your complete focus and attention, it also helps the brain release endorphins which have a soothing effect on the brain.

Gaining a better understanding of this debilitating panic attack symptom will certainly help to deal with it when it raises its head. Richard J. Kennedy talks about other common panic attack symptoms at http://Stop-The-Panic.com.

Question by muslim-doctor: What to do in the Last Ten Days of Ramadan?
What to do in the Last Ten Days of Ramadan?
Abdul Malik Mujahid

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

We can provide some useful advice on how one could spend the last ten days of Ramadan, especially as these days are very special in the life of every Muslim. In fact, every day is special for Muslim, as long as he is always mindful of Allah in all what he does; every day Muslim gets increased in piety and draws closer to Almighty Allah. But these days of Ramadan are highly special in the sense of their falling in one of the most blessed months of the year; the month of Ramadan, the month of the Qur’anic revelation. May Allah Almighty help us get closer to Him in this month and may strengthen our faith in Him in a way that Satan will not be able to drive us away from His Path, Ameen.

Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power) is described in the Qur’an as, {better than a thousand months}. [Surah Al-Qadr: 3] Any action done on this night such as reciting the Qur’an, remembering Allah, etc. is better than acting for one thousand months which do not contain the night of Qadr.

Allah’s Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) used to exert himself in devotion during the last ten nights to a greater extent than at any other time.

The Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said: “Whoever prays during the night of Qadr with faith and hoping for its reward will have all of his previous sins forgiven.”
[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurairah].

Here are some tips of things we can do on the Night of Power and the time before and after it:

1. Take a Vacation for Allah

We take a break from our jobs for almost everything in life. Why not this time to focus on worshipping and thanking our Creator.

If this is not possible at least take a few days off if you can. This can make it easier to stay awake at night to do extra acts of worship, not having to worry about getting to work the following day. This will also make I`tikaf easy.

2. I`tikaf

It was a practice of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, to spend the last ten days and nights of Ramadan in the mosque for I`tikaf.

In I`tikaf one makes a spiritual retreat in the mosque all the time, performing various forms of dhikr (the remembrance of Allah), like doing extra Salat, recitation and study of the Qur’an. One does not go outside the mosque except in case of emergencies. I`tikaf of a shorter period of time, like one night, a day or a couple of days is encouraged as well.

3. Make This Special Du’a

Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said:

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni’ ”

‘Say: O Allah, You are Oft-Pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.'”
[Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmidhi].

4. Recite the Qur’an

Perhaps one can choose Surahs or passages from the Quran which one has heard in Taraweeh this past Ramadan to recite.

On attending a class for Qur’anic recitation, this is a great time to put one’s knowledge into practice.

5. Get Your Sins Wiped Out

Abu Hurairah quoted Allah’s Messenger as saying: “Whoever stands (in prayer) in Laylatul Qadr while nourishing his faith with self-evaluation, expecting reward from Allah, will have all of his previous sins forgiven.”
[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim].

6. Evaluate Yourself

Ask yourself those questions that need to be asked. Do an evaluation of where you are and where you are going. Let this evaluation lead you to feel happiness for the good you have done and remorse for the bad you have done. This latter feeling should make it easier to seek Allah’s sincere forgiveness when invoking Allah and supplicating to Him in these blessed nights.

7. Make Long, Sincere and Deep Du’as

One of the best times to do this is during the last part of the night.

Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) quoted the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) as saying: “When the last one-third of the night remains, our Lord, the Glorious One descends towards the lower heaven and proclaims: Is there anyone supplicating to Me, so that I grant his supplication? Is there anyone begging of Me for anything so that and I grant him his wish? Is there anyone who seeks My forgiveness, so that I forgive him?”
[Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim]. This means for instance, waking up one hour before Suhoor (pre-dawn meal) time to invoke Allah for anything and everything is something recommendable. This can be done using the Du`as (supplications) recorded in the Sunnah, but one is also allowed to say Du`a in one’s own language, with sincerity and conviction.

8. Have Iftar with the Family

If you’ve spent Iftar time on weekdays in your cubicle at work alone with a couple of dates, now is the last few days you’ll have this Ramadan to spend with your family. Use it wisely.

9. Take the Family to Taraweeh

Have your spouse and kids missed Taraweeh most of Ramadan because you weren’t there to drive them to the mosque, which is too far away to walk to? If so, do all of yourselves a favor and bring everyone for Taraweeh in these last ten nights.

10. Attend the Du’a After the Completion of the Qur’anic Recitation

Almost all the mosques where the Imam aims to finish an entire reading of the Qur’an in Taraweeh prayers in Ramadan will now be approaching the end of the task in these last ten nights. They may try to end on one of the odd nights and read the Du`a’ at the end of reading the Qur’an. Attend this particular night’s Taraweeh prayer with your family. See if you can attend different mosques’ Taraweeh prayers the night they finish reading the Qur’an.

11. Finish Reading a Book on the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam):

Read about the Prophet’s life, which can increase your love for him and Islam by seeing how much he struggled for Allah’s sake. It may inspire you to push yourself even harder during these last ten nights. This community is built on sacrifice.

All these are just some hints on what is recommended for a Muslim to do in during the last ten nights of Ramadan. May Allah Almighty accept our worship and devotions.
Ameen.
