Mental or Spiritual Illness?


Muslims around the world are constantly striving to be the first to find solutions to benefit themselves and the society. But the first step in finding a solution is identifying the underlying problem.

Awareness for Mental Health has increased significantly in the society. As Muslims, we should adopt a holistic lens when trying to address these matters using both Islamic and medical approaches.

Join us, Shaykh Ismail Albatnuni, Imam at Masjid Ar-Rahmah, and Dr. Khalid Bazaid, child and adolescent Psychiatrist, at this hybrid program to develop a comprehensive understanding of Mental Health.
