Sadness and Depression are real. There is a spiritual, mental and biological paradigm that one needs to consider when it comes to depression and anxiety. Struggling with mental illness doesn't diminish one's faith, nor should they be viewed as lacking in their certainty in Allah and His messenger.

Question: The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is considered to be 'Ummi'. Is this a reference that he ﷺ categorically could not read and write or is it instead a reference that he ﷺ was untaught by man? There are some circles that deny the former position outright and advocate the latter meaning of 'Ummi' as the only orthodox view.
