This work embodies the fruits of my ten years study of the subject-Islamic Psychology. On hearing Islamic Psychology one may pertinently ask-Is there any such discipline? The answer to this is to be found in the first two chapters of this work.
It is not a detailed account of Islamic Psychology, only its main contours have been sketched here. It would require many volumes to present a complete description of the subject.
As a growing discipline in our times psychology does have an important role in various fields of human life. It is hard to deny the influence of psychology in our daily life. Consciously or unconsciously we follow certain psychological laws, ways and methods in our life. This point is illustrated in following pages. This book will provide one with an outlook on the subject. Some of the fresh ideas presented here may evoke criticism. The controversy will, nevertheless, broaden the horizon of psychology.
