The Integration of Islamic Philosophy and Modern Psychology in Ibn Sina's Concept of Marriage


Asif Iqbal


The objective of this qualitative research is to explore the notion of marriage as understood by Ibn Sina, and to examine the potential synthesis between Ibn Sina's perspective and John Bradshaw's modern psychological understanding of marriage, as presented in their respective written works. Upon conducting a comprehensive analysis of many sources, the writers have determined that Ibn Sina overlooked several topics that were extensively examined by John Bradshaw. This study asserts that the integration of multidisciplinary studies is necessary to supplement Islamic knowledge and modern studies, hence facilitating a comprehensive discourse.
