Fear of occurrence of undesirable events in future and grief upon the unpleasant events happened in the past are common phenomena in our lives. FEAR is highly correlated with ANXIETY; GRIEF is highly correlated with DEPRESSION. Some measures suggested in the Quran to dispel fear and grief, are given in the following:

1. BELIEF (ایمان)

 إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالنَّصَارَىٰ وَالصَّابِئِينَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Surely, those who (profess to have) believed (in Islam), and those who became Jews, the Christians and the Sabians, whosoever (of these truly) believes in Allah and the Last Day and acts righteously shall have their reward with their Sustainer, and they shall have no fear, nor shall they suffer from any grief.

 [Al-Quran Surah 2: Verse 62]

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالصَّابِئُونَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Yes, indeed! whoever submits himself entirely to Allah and he is the doer of good, he shall have his reward from his Sustainer and (such people) shall have no fear, nor shall they suffer from any grief.
