Prevention of Addiction Based on Islamic Ways

The disease of addiction is a concern of many parties when it is increasing every year. When we talk about addiction often it is associated with drug addiction over the years to be taken seriously by the government. The fact is that people today are not only dealing with drug addiction and even various forms of addiction that invites serious problems if left unchecked.

Treatment and rehabilitation of drug addiction need to combine the best of conventional and religious approach. Drug addiction is not able to be fully restored without an appreciation of the science of religion. He explained that the approach to spirituality and religion, regardless of religion and belief is essential to restore the overall addiction for a long time. Ahmad Zahid said the effort to combat drug abuse in this country should not be held entirely to the government but also to involve themselves, parents and other agencies.

Religion is one of the protective factors that facilities positive outcomes by preventing individuals from engaging in addictive substance. A recent study has confirmed that religion inhibits drug addiction. The concept of psychospiritual therapy was to introduce drug addiction. Therefore, of the various methods of psychotherapy, the usage of Taqwa (piety) emerged as an applicable method of Islamic spiritual therapy. This study was conducted in Malaysia as a Muslim country and focuses on Islamic recommendations and its relation to spiritual therapy.

A Quran'ic Approach

The next step in the prohibition of alcohol was related to prayer and involved a command to abstain from prayer while intoxicated:
“O believers! Do not approach prayer while intoxicated until you are aware of what you say, nor in a state of “full” impurity—unless you merely pass through “the mosque”—until you have bathed. But if you are ill, on a journey, or have relieved yourselves, or been intimate with your wives and cannot find water, then purify yourselves with clean earth, wiping your faces and hands. And Allah is Ever-Pardoning, All-Forgiving” (Quran 4:43) 
The fourth step is the prohibition of alcohol (and intoxicating drug) use, and also the contextualization of the substance use.
“O believers! Intoxicants, gambling, idols, and drawing lots for decisions are all evil of Satan’s handiwork. So shun them so you may be successful. Satan’s plan is to stir up hostility and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling and to prevent you from remembering Allah and praying. Will you not then abstain?”
