A believer has full faith and trust in Allah and in His divine decree, yet may nonetheless suffer from psychological issues that require assistance from a therapist. Modern secular psychology does not tend to consider the impact or benefits of religion and spirituality on our well-being, even though these are often the most important aspect of a Muslim’s life. This can often not only increase distress and suffering but also lead to a crisis of faith
In this book, Dr. Feryad A. Hussain blends modern psychology with verses from the Qur’an and authentic hadiths. Through an Islamic reframing of eighty-five therapeutic themes – which include self-control, patience, accepting advice, anger/aggression, being grateful, confidence, coping, flexibility, guilt, and many more – Dr. Hussain draws on her extensive experience as a clinical psychologist to offer alternative understandings based on Allah’s message to humankind. The text offers logic and divine comfort to help both clients and therapist resolve their issues through faith, contemplation, and prayer.
