In the light of Qur'an and Hadith the study of Human Behavior as such and its application to the growth and development of a healthy society is the main purpose of the Divine Guidance. Islam and the teaching of Allah's apostle clearly show us the direction of study and research in the field of human behavior, both individual and groups. The stories given in the Qur'an are the examples, explanation and indications of the deviant as well as the expected normal behavior of human beings. Thus Qur'an and Hadith both jointly lead us to a comprehensive study of psychology as a science.
