About the Book:
The famous Islamonline.net was receiving many questions from its viewers from around the world in their forum. Many of which were psycho-spiritual in nature, making the need for a Muslim psychologist inevitable. When Malik Badri was approached by Islamonline.net to initiate a cyber-counseling program, he readily obliged. The novel and humble collaboration of Malik Badri and Islamonline.net in answering these questions has materialized in a book. The selection of questions and solutions prescribed here are varied, from marital disharmony and dysfunctional families to anxiety disorders, parapsychology issues, drug addiction, and the influence of the mind over the body. It is hoped that some of the solutions provided here, based on Islamically modeled therapy, will continue to help others with similar problems in this changing world of globalization.
Some mature themes. Not recommended for children.
