IAMP Conference 2022 Participants

Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh


Asshalatu wassalamu ‘ala sayyidina muhammad, wa’ala alihi wa ashabihi ajma’in.

All praises are to Allah who had made it possible for us to organize the 7th International Conference of the International Association of Muslim Psychologists (IAMP). This conference was held on February 5-8, 2022 and was still in Covid-19 pandemic time. This pandemic is a blessing in disguise because it forced us to use online platform and with this platform, this conference could gather almost all scholars of Islamic Psychology from all around the world. The registered participant was 958 from 66 different countries. From those participants, 14 of them submitted articles which were then edited and published in this proceeding. The topic of these articles varied from conceptual issues, comparative study, psychotherapy, confirmatory study, and other applied psychology issues.

In the effort to introduce Islamic Psychology as a scientific discipline, the Muslim psychologists are endorsed to publish articles and to establish scientific community that collaboratively built the body of psychological knowledge from Islamic perspective. This proceeding is a part of such collaborative effort to enrich the literature on Islamic Psychology. The IAMP also publishes periodical in Islamic Psychology in the form of peer-reviewed journal. The International Journal of Islamic Psychology (IJIP) was first published in 2018. IJIP can be accessed online through this link: .

InsyaAllah IAMP together with the global network of Muslim Psychologists will continue to engage in the noble endeavors for strengthening Islamic Psychology by organizing conference regularly and by publishing the proceeding accordingly. Alhamdulillah, today we can witness the establishment of several study programs on Islamic Psychology in Charles-Sturt University in Australia, Cambridge Muslim College, Riphah Institute Pakistan, and Avicenna Academy in Indonesia. These achievements cannot be possible without the works of the many in IAMP and the global network of Muslim Psychologists. Meanwhile, there are no less than 20 Islamic universities in Indonesia which have started to develop curriculum of Islamic Psychology. Not to mention the many seminars and conferences held by these universities in the country. This all shows the high motivation among Indonesian psychologists as well as students and the public in learning Islamic Psychology and its relevances to their life. May Allah help us and guide us in our effort in advancing psychology as the science of human soul, cognition, emotion, and behavior. Amiin.
