About This Course

Mental health in Islam is a forgotten subject matter in this era of modernisation. Many Muslims resort to western psychology and have little idea on how Islam and mental health are both related for a more fulfilling and tranquil life. If you truly understand the importance of mental health in Islam, you will realise how Islam emphasises on mental health awareness.

Our emotions are the means through which many of our tests in life come. Whether it is happiness, sadness, gratitude, anger, or otherwise, we are tested through our responses to them. Being balanced emotionally is essential to our mental wellbeing, as well as longevity. Trauma can upset this balance, and in its absence issues such as addictions, depression, anxiety and in extreme cases – mental disorders can arise.

The speaker will address how we can achieve a state of balance and improve our mental health. He will discuss the subject through referencing the Islamic sources of the Qur'an and Sunnah, and evaluate praiseworthy works and contributions of Muslim physicians and philosophers in the field of mental health.
