Religious Spiritual Cure: Creative Clinical Psychological Methods

Psychological security is the feeling of peace and tranquility which surrounds you all the time in all aspects of your life. The pressing question in this respect is: Why do modern societies, despite the great technological advance, fail to create a safe and secure society? This is mainly due to the mistaken western theory that suggests studying human life and psychology away from religion and Allah. As a result of that, virtues deteriorated, morals and values were lost. This is quite obvious in the following comparison between modern psychology and Islamic psychology.

Recently, there are new trends among modern psychologists claiming the importance of religion in treating psychological ailments. They realized that the belief in Allah provides man with a spiritual energy that helps him bear life difficulties, and discard anxiety which most people suffer from in the present materialistic life.
