Konsep dasar terapi Islam

Salah satu ciri yang menonjol dalam konsep Islam adalah adanya prinsip keseimbangan (Yin-Yang) dan keharmonisan hidup. Islam adalah agama lahir dan batin, serta agama dunia dan akhirat. Keharmonisan ini karena Islam sesuai dengan bentuk dan jenis penciptaan alam raya yang menggambarkan keseimbangan, seperti yang diungkapkan Al-Qur’an dengan istilah Fithrah karena sifat fithrah itu sendiri adalah seimbang atau harmoni. Keseimbangan dan keharmonisan ajaran Islam mengandung implikasi bahwa Islam selalu berada pada garis tengah, tidak ekstrim pada salah satu pandangan, tidak materialistis, dan tidak pula sosialis. Islam memandang hidup secara utuh dan seimbang antara realita dan idealita. Kehadiran Islam menjadikan umatnya sebagai saksi yang berada di garis tengah terhadap seluruh realitas kehidupan.

E-book Islam Therapy (terapi Islam) ini merupakan ajakan kepada para penyalahguna narkoba, ODHA (Orang Dengan HIV/AIDS), para pengidap gangguan psikologis (gelisah, frustasi, cemas, bersedih hati, emosi tidak stabil, putus asa, hidup tanpa tujuan, gangguan kepribadian, dsb) dan segenap umat Nabi Muhammad SAW, untuk menjadikan Islam sebagai modalitas terapi.

Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum.

Due to the financial crisis in the US, my company lost a lot of business and I cannot pay back the creditors because I am owed a huge sum of money.

20 Tips for Lowering the Gaze

womenislam Shari`ah came to forbid the ways that lead to immorality, one of which is looking at non-mahram (a mahram is a non-marriageable relative) women. Almighty Allah says: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts)” (An-Nur:30)

Below are 20 tips to help a person to lower his gaze:

1 – Bearing in mind the fact that Allah is watching you, that He sees you and is with you (by His knowledge) wherever you go. It may be a secretive glance of which your closest neighbor is unaware, but Allah knows of it: “Allah knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the hearts conceal.” (Ghafir:19)

House hold problems: Should I (wife) keep patient (sabr) or divorce?

muslimfamilyQuestion:

Salaams, May Allah reward you for all your hard work.

I have been married for nearly 6 years and have a daughter who is nearly 3 years Alhumdulliah. My husband is very heavily dependant on class A drugs and also sells it most of the time. We do not get on at all and we can go on not talking to each other for weeks. In a month we probably have about 2 good days and that’s it. From the second day of our marriage I regretted getting married to him, it was a love marriage, (no love left now, more like it's become hate). I’m sure he wants to get off the drugs and every few months he tries by himself and I have to constantly put up with his mood, withdrawal symptoms etc. I have tried to help him but he doesn’t want to see the doctor, thinks he can do it by himself, but of course he can’t.
