Counseling the Family of the Terminally Ill During Sickness and Death

Abul Fadl Mohsin Ebrahim

Abstract


A center for counseling is practically nonexistent in the Muslim world. Likewise, Muslims living in the West, on many occasions, tend to seek the services of non-Muslim counselors when confronted with specific emotional social problems. This article serves to evolve a method of counseling the MusLim family, based on the teachings of the Glorious Qur'an and Hadith during three specific stages: upon news that the loved one is tcrminally ill, during his or her sickness, and after his or her death.
