[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][B]Islam and Security[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=red][B]One of the basic needs of man is to feel secure. The feeling of security is a psychological need which has to be satisfied so as to achieve the individuals harmony and adjustment. As we know, human needs are of two types: physical and psychological. Physical needs include the need for water, food, and ****ter. Psychological needs include the need for belonging, security, and affection. If a physical need is not satisfied, this usually causes harm to the body. On the other hand, if a psychological need is not satisfied, this usually leads to psychological disorders, lack of happiness, anxiety, and a variety of [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][B]Internal harmony[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=yellowgreen][B]Islam emphasizes the moral and ethical aspects, because man needs more than bread to live happily. Man needs internal harmony. Man is body and soul -- not body or soul only. Therefore, man needs what satisfies both his body soul. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=yellowgreen][B]Islam provides man with the feeling of security. This feeling of security is built in different ways. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B][COLOR=yellowgreen]This feeling will remove despair, hopelessness and anxiety, and will make man more hopeful, active, and self-confident.[/COLOR] [/B][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][B]Allaahs Mercy[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]Islam instructs the believer that Allaah is the Most Merciful. This concept of Allaahs Mercy is essential in Islam. Allaahs Mercy affects the Muslim in two ways: by example and forgiveness. If Allaah is the Merciful, man must be merciful. Man must be merciful to other persons of all races and all religions. He must be merciful to animals as well. He must be merciful to women, relatives and strangers, to parents and children, and to all living beings.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]This atmosphere of mercy in Islam gives the person a feeling of security for ones life, honor, rights and property, because mercy is something you give to others and others give it to you. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B][COLOR=navy]Allaahs Mercy works in another way, if man sins, he is not driven out of Allaahs blessings forever. In Islam, if you sin, the door of Allaahs forgiveness remains open. If you sin and then sincerely repent, Allaah forgives. This formula of Allaahs Mercy and forgiveness keeps the Muslim secure about his relation with Allaah and secure about his ethical code [/COLOR][/B][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][B]Human Mercy[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]This concept of Allaahs Mercy and interhuman mercy is emphasized by Islam. When a Muslim eats, he begins by saying: In the name of Allaah, the Most Merciful and the Most Gracious. When a Muslim reads the Quran or quotes the Quran he starts by mentioning Allaahs Mercy. In prayer, the Muslim mentions Allaahs Mercy a number of times every day. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]Thus, the Muslim lives in an atmosphere of mercy, both physically and psychologically. A Muslim is led to feel that God is merciful and that his brethren are merciful. If a persons relations with Allaah and men are controlled by mercy, this will make him feel secure in the present and the future[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=blue][B]Belief in Allaah[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B]ues
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=red][B]Believing in Allaah gives the believer a sense of security. How can a person feel secure if he does not believe in Allaah? Research has shown that mental disorders show up in non-believers more frequently and more severely than in believers. A non-believer is not sure about anything. He is not sure about his beginning, his end, or his goals. A non-believer is not sure about values, ideals, right, wrong, good, or bad. A non-believer is usually a sceptical person, anxious, disordered and hesitant.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B][COLOR=red]On the contrary, a Muslim knows the origin and purpose of his life. He is one hundred percent sure about what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad. A Muslim is certain about himself, his life, the Universe, his social relations, his rights, and his duties. He is [/COLOR][/B][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B][COLOR=red]sure of his ideals and val[/COLOR][/B][/SIZE][/FONT]

[SIZE=5][FONT=Book Antiqua][B][COLOR=blue]Certainty of Values[/COLOR][/B][/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=5][FONT=Book Antiqua][COLOR=navy][/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]The Muslims certainty about his values and ideals springs from the comprehensive code of ethics given by God to man. When a person has clear values, clear ideals, a clear beginning, and a clear destination, he feels secure, because he know where he is going. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]Coming to more specific data, if we look at some non-Islamic communities, we find that there is a high frequency of persons with mental disorders. This is due to the lack of religion in those communities. With no religion, man feels lost, unsupported, and feels that he has no significant purpose. On the other hand, with belief in Allaah, man feels secure, because he feels that he is guided and supported by Allaah and that he has a significant purpose. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][COLOR=navy][B]Thus, Islam provides man with the psychological security he needs throughout life, through the mercy and guidance of Allaah. [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=5][B][COLOR=navy]When you know that Allaah guides and protects those who believe in Him, you would feel secure[/COLOR]. [/B][/SIZE][/FONT]
