The Psychology of Love in Islam and Implications for Education
Syaidatun Nazirah Abu Zahrin, Maznah Hj. Ibrahim, Farah Fadzil

The Psychology of Love were studied extensively and scientifically in the West. However, that is not the case in the Muslim world. Muslim scholars have been discussing and preaching about love, but love has not been researched extensively from the psychological perspective. This research is an attempt to demonstrate that Muslims could be motivated to learn a proper understanding of the Psychology of Love from an Islamic viewpoint. This study argues that proper understanding of the love for Allah has embedded within it the love for the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the love for the Qur’an and Sunnah which leads to deep, creative, and critical thinking, subsequently to the love for knowledge. In this study, actions have been outlined to help inculcate the Psychology of Love from an Islamic perspective especially in the field of education, which should produce a dynamic effect among the young generation and humanity in general.
