Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:05--> 00:00:13

I would like to introduce you to our course, in Islamic psychology.

00:00:14--> 00:00:18

Islamic psychology is a new field.

00:00:20--> 00:00:27

It is something which is lacking in most Muslim countries.

00:00:28--> 00:00:34

We have psychology, yes, Western psychology, which has its own

00:00:35--> 00:00:44

basis and approach to understanding human beings. How they think, how they

00:00:45--> 00:00:49

react, how they interact.

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

Islamic psychology

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

is based on the fact that human beings have a soul.

00:01:00--> 00:01:03

Western psychology don't believe in the soul.

00:01:04--> 00:01:20

They observe animals and the way that animals operate, they've drawn certain conclusions. And they've applied that to human beings. But we are more than just animals. So

00:01:21--> 00:01:34

Islamic psychology seeks to bring human beings into the holistic picture of life on earth.

00:01:35--> 00:01:43

And this area of study is vital for the development of our institutions.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

Even in businesses,

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

even in

00:01:49--> 00:01:55

the military, or in whatever field, psychology has to roll.

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

So

00:01:58--> 00:02:16

we invite you to join the international Open University, and to enter into this new field of Islamic psychology to make a difference in the future, for human beings in the world, in general.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

It is a new and challenging field,

00:02:22--> 00:02:30

which I'm sure those of you who have this inclination would greatly enjoy. So

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

commit yourselves to study from this Islamic perspective.

00:02:40--> 00:02:59

Psychology needs this guidance, be the leaders in this field to create a new world vision for understanding human beings and how they interact.

00:03:00--> 00:03:16

So my brothers and sisters, those of you who have this inclination, we welcome you to join the Department of Islamic psychology in the international Open University.
