The inner nature of man human psyche – is a major theme of the Qur’an and the Qur’an uses its own terminology while speaking about it. One comes across terms like ruh, nafs, qalb, etc. What do these terms mean, and how their understanding can throw light on human psyche from the Qur’anic perspective is the topic of this book.This book consists of six articles based on papers read in a seminar on ‘Qur’anic Concepts of Human Psyche,’ which was organized by the International Institute of Islamic Thought, Pakistan.The articles cover a wide spectrum of topics including various philosophical and pscyhological theories, and a host of views expressed by Muslim thinkers. The authors advocate that it is important that the Qur’anic concepts should be understood in terms of the Qur’an itself, and not as equivalents of concepts of foreign intellectual provenance. This is important, and unless due care is taken of it, one would at the most grasp near-equivalents of those concepts in the contemporary works on psychology, and these might be quite different from the intrinsic meanings embodied in the relevant verses of the Qur’an.CONTRIBUTORS : 1.
