The re-emergence of Islamically centered therapy has increased over the past few decades. This has been motivated by the need for a therapeutic approach to treating mental illness that is ideologically acceptable within the boundaries of Islam. This has become a concern not only for Muslim therapists and their patients but in fact for all Muslims, as part of their adherence to Islam and towards improving their Iman.

Muslim psychologists around the world are working hard at developing faith-based models of therapy that are acceptable to their peers and Muslim scholars alike. This book provides a collection of Qur'anic ayaat and authentic ahadith and their interpretations to challenge distressing psychological thoughts and behaviors. Written by an experienced clinical psychologist, the text may be used as a therapeutic aid or reference for clinicians or simply as a general guide to character development. The use of analogy means that the book is relevant to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike with the aim of using guidance from Islam to alleviate difficulties and to improve our understanding of human distress. Only the Creator best knows the creation.

Some of the topics discussed in context of therapy include the following:

  • The Analogical Model

  • Implementing behavioral  change 

  • Choosing between clinical diagnosis or clinical cognitions?

Selected section from the Foreword of the book:

A few decades ago the late Dr Muhammad Uthman Najati, may Allah Bless his soul, wrote two books, The Holy Quran and Psychology and The Prophets Hadith and Psychology. In these books, the author simply categorised Verses from the Holy Qur'an and Blessed Hadith that were related to the different topics of general psychology. I was honored to have Dr. Najati as my colleague in the University of Imam Mohammad bin Saud in the eighties. He told me that before retiring at night he used to read a few pages from the Noble Qur'an or the Blessed Hadith of our Prophet (saw). Whenever a verse or hadith seemed to him to be expressing some aspect of modern psychology such as motivation, personality or perception, he would categorise it as such. Dr. Najati was a pioneer of Islamic psychology and his two books were the first endeavor of its kind. They were and still are of great benefit to Arab university students of psychology as well as to the general public.

The present volume by Dr. Feryad Hussain is a similar but much more specialised and refined reference book. In my experience, I find that European psychologists who revert to Islam and non-European Muslim psychologists who were born and raised in Europe or the US do not show the apologetic attitude that we generally find among Arab and Asian psychologists when critiquing secular Western psychology. Once the former group commit themselves to Islam, their "psychological worldview" is diametrically changed. They know their Western culture and are quite aware of its deep-down secular and anti-religious aspects….
