Abstract

This paper argues that Islam can play an important role in reducing fear if it is practiced in the light of Ibn Sina’s (d. 1037) rational approach combined with Said Nursi’s (d. 1960) spirituality injected methodology of overcoming extreme unrealistic fears and the disorders of negative imagination, known as wahm. This combination which I have categorised as, ‘Fear Reducing Holistic Approach' (FERHA) has four stages: (a) Building trust, (b) Recognizing the problem in-depth, (c) Reducing fear and negative feeling through engagement, (d) Discovering unused or misused strength. One case will be studied. The FERHA has strengths and weaknesses.
