The Department of Psychology’s book titled “Psychology from an Islamic Perspective: A Guide to Teaching and Learning”, first published in 2009, was our first initiative to integrate contemporary Western psychological knowledge with Islamic teachings. The book has served as a guide and primary reference in the teaching and learning of psychology in and outside of the University. The Department remains committed to upholding the mission of the University and advocates for a greater integration of knowledge by producing a book that focuses on research developments within the different areas of psychology. This book, between the hands of the reader, signifies the recent efforts of members of the Department in contextualising Islam within their respective research areas. Furthermore, it puts together empirical research ideas and findings that are relevant to both psychology and Islamic studies. In particular, it offers two significant contributions in the topic area. First, it helps to develop and propose new research ideas for the Islamisation, relevantisation, and integration of knowledge and research in psychology and Islamic studies, and second, it demonstrates the practical applications, strategies, and challenges of conducting these processes. We hope that this book would serve as one of the resources that can offer guidelines and recommendations that can help Muslim psychologists and researchers as well as those interested in this topic to answer the ʻhow toʼ questions for contextualising Islam in research practice. Our further hope is that this book will encourage researchers who are actively committed to the core beliefs, vision, and mission of Islam to develop more substantive ideas, theories, methods, and research so that this body of knowledge can be further expanded.
