The inner nature of human psyche is a major theme of the Quran and the Quran 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 Quranic perspective is the topic of this book This books consists of six articles based on papers read in a seminar on “Quranic Concept 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 psychological theories, and a host of views expressed by Muslim thinkers. The authors advocate that it is important that the Quranic concepts should be understood in terms of the Quran itself, and not as equivalent 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 Quran.
