The GP or the exorcist?

Training

When PISANG was formed 5 years ago, the Muslims in UK refrained from talking openly about jinn possession problems, fearing that they might be ridiculed for believing a medieval concept. Things have now changed and the awareness of jinn related disorder has risen amongst them. As a result, Muslims are more open to discuss their jinn-related disorders and also recommending friends or relatives to seek therapy for suspected jinn-related disorders.

The awareness of jinn-related disorders has brought both relief and discomfort. Many are relieved to find out that there is another explanation to the predicaments they have been suffering in the past. They now believe that they have been suffering from jinn possession and started to look at other forms of therapy. Ruqyah (Quranic incantation) is one form of therapy for jinn-possession. The rush to find the "cure" to jinn-possession has caused an increase in the number of people learning and offering ruqyah.

Training

There has been an increase in awareness of jinn-related mental health problems amongst the Muslims. A recent exploratory quantitative study conducted on Muslims in the UK (H. Rahman, Muslim belief in jinn-related mental health disorder and seeking input from psychotherapy services, Nov 2012, MSc Psychotherapy Studies dissertation, University of Sheffield) found out that Muslims who believe that they have jinn-related health problems will avoid going to the doctor and instead will seek treatment from someone who knows about jinn-related problems.

Professionals in the Mental Health sector need to understand the issues faced by Muslims on jinn-related mental health problems. This will give confidence to Muslims to seek proper help from reliable professional Mental Health services rather than seeking help from individuals who know very little about Mental Health. Whilst there are individuals who have good track record in dealing with jinn-related problems, there are also those who may endanger the clients through misdiagnosis, giving wrong advice or even using dangerous exorcism methods.

Update 3rd August 2013: Tajwid from Scratch is now available as an online resource at "Knowledge Den" website. The class in Oxford has also been replaced with private tuitions.

Sponsor a New Muslim

Since PISANG began operation about 4 years ago, we have seen a steady increase in the number of people from all over UK using our services. Among those who have been using our services are new Muslims (also called reverts or Muslim converts). Almost all new Muslims that have contacted us are still relying on romanised transliteration to read the Quran. The desire in learning to read the Quran with proper tajwid is there, but the absence of learning facilities or lack of financial resources are obstacles preventing them from progressing.

PISANG has launched a "Sponsor a New Muslim" initiative to teach new Muslims tajwid from scratch. Anybody who would like to sponsor a new Muslim to read the Quran can make financial contribution on a monthly basis and PISANG will select a new Muslim or you can nominate a new Muslim that you will sponsor. We hope that you will support our initiative in helping to get more new Muslims to be able to read Quran with proper tajwid. Your support will make a significant change to the landscape of Islam in UK.

You can contribute to this initiative either through your personal financial contribution or by paying your zakat to this initiative. Please contact us for more details.

PISANG had the pleasure of meeting an expert in psychiatry, Professor Dr Nor Zuraida Zainal who is Senior Consultant, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry of Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, Malaysia on Wednesday 13th July 2011. Prof Dr Zuraida was invited to PISANG centre in Bicester for psychiatric assessment of a new PISANG client. The client has been suffering from mental health problem for 30 years and she is still currently taking medication prescribed by the NHS.

Prof Dr Zuraida's assessment of the client is part of an effort to compare and contrast diagnosis of mental health problems according to Western Psychiatry methodology and the New Quranic Therapy methodology currently being researched by PISANG. Having tried Western psychiatric treatment for 30 years, the client decided to try PISANG's Quranic Therapy to overcome her mental health problem.
