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 health, as well as longevity. Trauma can upset this balance, and in its absence issues such as addictions, depression, anxiety and in extreme cases – mental illnesses can arise.
The speaker will address how we can achieve a state of balance. 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.
