Question: Is one who is ill with the a psychological illness from those whom the pen is lifted?
Answer: “The pen is lifted from the one whose intellect is absent. As for the one whose intellect is present and he has depression or a psychological illness, then the the pen is not lifted from him. The pen is lifted from the one who is missing his intellect. As comes in the Hadith:
رفع القلم عن ثلاثة: النائم حتى يستيقظ، والمجنون حتى يفيق، والصغير حتى يبلغ
The Pen has been lifted from three : from the sleeping person until he awakens, from the minor until he grows up, and from the insane person until he comes to his senses [Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 4399]
[Sharh Sunan no. 494]
