Transformation Coaching 

Create a Deep Connection with Allah, understand how human Psychology and Physiology fits into Islam and you really want to become 100% certain about the way life truly is through Islamic Psychology based on the Quran & Sunnah, this program will be a Life Transformation for you insha’Allah.

Does this sound familiar to you ?

I know of different approaches to Psychology and therapy but I struggle to understand how that fits into Islam? or you’re always wondering why Islam which is 100% complete does not include something so vital like mental health and well being.

I’m confident the way I understand life, and how I help people in my work really helps them, but I personally struggle to connect to Allah and feel spiritually connected. 

I’ve watched lectures on purification of the soul and read books on it, but I still struggle myself from time to time with real lasting change, even though different techniques I’ve learnt along the way really help me to cope. 

I feel like I struggle with my own mind and emotional ups and downs with Fear and Anxiety.  I want to feel 100% confident and certain in my knowledge of Islam and how best to live and teach psychology / personal mastery so Allah is happy with me.

Even though I know all that I know, I still struggle to make the right decisions, procrastinate, and just struggle to take action, even after doing courses, taking advice and understanding your own psychology.

You understand that thought, meaning and interpretation are the problem, but the inner motor mouth (waswas) just won’t stop sabotaging you.

You are deeply committed to Allah and living for both Dunya and Akhira,  and you don’t want to miss out on either, but you really struggle to get balance.

You want the freedom to have an Impact on the world and leave a legacy that serves you in the Akhira.

You want to feel like you’re serving Allah and helping humanity but you’re not confident that what you do is in line with the Quran and Sunnah or even helping you to serve your Purpose.

What is this about  ?

Asalamu alaikum

If ANY of the above makes sense to you, this program is going to interest you. But first let’s understand what ILMU-NAFS is.

‘ILMU NAFS’  is an Arabic term that loosely translates as Islamic Psychology, but literally it actually means ‘Knowledge of the Self’. This is the knowledge found within the Quran and Sunnah that guides us to mastery of the Nafs, which is Mastery of Life, psychological, physical and spiritual.

Get TrainED & CertifiED

The Divine Principles of Personal & Professional Transformation

This training will not try to explain traditional psychology or even attempt to fit it into the Islam.

Instead the program which teach you ‘The Divine Principles of Islamic Psychology’ as is understood based on the Quranic understanding of the Human mind, body and Soul. For this reason we will refer to it as ILMU NAFS (knowledge of the self) and not Islamic Psychology.

Islam has been around for more than 1400 years and it is 100% complete with a psychological and physiological understanding of the human being.

Quranic revelation gave us a clear understanding of how we humans are built and what are the best ways to navigate life so that we can face any challenge, grow and become who we were created to be. We call this the process of Ihsan.

When going through your own development or helping your community and clients with their problems this will work 100% of the time inshaAllah.

Although the program is taught from the sources of Quran & Sunnah, it is not exclusive to Muslims. Rather this is the science of human existence and well-being, so it is universal for all of humanity.

That means people from all walks of life will benefit from this Universal Divine Principles of ILMU NAFS.

If I haven’t made it clear yet, THIS WILL CHANGE YOU LIFE FOREVER and give you breakthroughs you’ve probably been making Dua for insha’Allah.

About Abdul Shahid

 Just incase you don’t know me very well, I’m Abdul Shahid and I’ve been running the Quranic Connection Academy for over 5 years now.

One thing I realised whilst teaching hundreds of students over the years, is that knowledge isn’t always enough. People actually need mentoring and coaching to help them to actually see it in their lives and support in living according to it.

My own background is that I’ve been on this journey for both personal and commercial transformation for over 20 years.

With 20 years of working in Consultancy Business building, Marketing and Sales, I have gleaned an all-round experience of building businesses from the ground up. In this journey I’ve trained many professionals on how to build and nurture business relationships.

In my own personal Journey I have spent the last 18 years seeking knowledge, teaching and mentoring individuals like yourself. Having travelled and lived in Egypt and Saudi Arabia where I learned through the Islamic seminary of Al Azhar. On return to the UK I founded the Quranic Connection Academy (originally known as Al-Fatihah Institute).

On top of this I have training in different Self development philosophies, Three Principles/ InsideOut, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Coaching & Facilitator training.

So the ILMU NAFS Divine Principles program is an amalgamation of all of the knowledge and experience to date.

Look it sounds complicated, but truth be told it’s SIMPLE.
