As part of our weekly Quran circle, we have reached verse 84 of Surat Yusuf, which describes Prophet Yuqub SAW in the following way: “And he turned away from them [. i.e., his sons], and said: ‘How great is my grief for Joseph!’ And his eyes became white with sorrow, and he fell into silent melancholy.” Given the ubiquity of mental health issues in today’s world, we will be addressing this question today insha’Allah, in the light of Yaqub’s trail.

The session runs on Saturdays, after Maghrib prayer (at 4.15pm), in Bath mosque, and it is open to everyone.
