THE IMPACT OF ART THERAPY BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF QURANIC VERSES AND NARRATIVES ON IMPROVING LIFESTYLE

Hourieh Nategh Nouri

Abstract


Our study is based on to prove the Quranic verses and narratives can be one of the main factors in predicting and promoting mental health. Also, I believe that using holy Quran and narratives and benefiting from the word of Allah, the Exalted as well as the opinion of the prophets and the Infallibles Imams are the best instrument to change the way of life and open the mind ties of individuals. The major difference between Art-therapy and other methods is that it allows us to express our emotions and communicate with our surroundings in a way other than using words and sentences as words and phrases are limited and cannot fully do it in the communication. Therefore, what I believe in, is that art can interpret the narratives and the holy Quran better than they do. There are many books already written, skilled speaker and orators make speech, Islamic Center are built to familiarize people with religion, nonetheless this things does not have a substantial impact on changing lifestyles and influencing people's thoughts. However, by using art in the application of religious concepts we can have a positive effect on people’s mind and changing their lifestyle. To make this study possible we will follow the case by the below question. The question is that whether by using art, can we teach Quranic concepts for human well-being and improvement of their standard of living as much as it becomes as a culture and belief in their lives. Two theories will support our discussion, the first is the Islamic view as it is according Quran and verses approach. And the second is the Jung’s theory as a psychological theory.Conclusion could be reached by the end of study and would be resulted for a new achievement of changing lifestyle
