El Gilani Methodology (conclusion)

Dr. Jemille Wasi
Islamic Post Contributing Writer

If you have been reading the Islamic Post in the last few months you would have seen that I have been writing on the subject of El Gilani Methodology (EGM). Starting in the April 2008 edition of the Islamic Post, I began a series whose intended purpose was to formally introduce EGM to those who may not know exactly what it is. This final article serves as a conclusion or summary to the entire series.

The history of EGM is an important factor in understanding the Methodology. At the time of the inception of El Gilani Methodology, many psychiatrists from all around the globe were meeting at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference in Egypt in hopes of finding a way to standardize treatment approaches to mental disease. The idea was to pool the practices of many cultures to come up with one general approach. Meanwhile, EGM was reaching acclaim in Pakistan. Due to success in the subcontinent, the Methodology soon began to garner attention on a larger scale.

As a result, El Sheikh Gilani, the developer of the method, formalized the process into a system.

One of the psychiatrists present at the WHO conference, Dr. Usama Radi, believed that aspects of Quranic therapy could be beneficial to WHO’s worldwide treatment approach. Recognizing that El Sheikh Gilani of Pakistan was an authority on such matters, Dr. Radi contacted El Sheikh to enlist his assistance in proving the science behind the healing with chapters from the Holy Quran.

A special research facility was set up in the psychiatry wing of a hospital in Taif, Saudi Arabia. Scientific experimentation commenced on many subjects suffering from a variety of psychiatric maladies. The effectiveness of the method was noted immediately by all who were present including world renowned psychiatrists from a variety of different countries.

Upon further examination however, those in attendance with formal western psychiatric training began to feel that the foundation of the method was incongruent with their beliefs. They began to find fault and attempted to “fit” the results into something that made sense to them.

The “radical” idea that human flesh is a covering for the true spiritual beings that we are, was in total contradiction to the belief system of the psychiatrists involved, who thought that our extraordinary physical bodies merely house our minds –which are but impressive centers made of neurotransmitters and complex tissue. Moreover, the psychiatrists came to realize that EGM gives mankind a firm understanding that he is a spiritual creature whose deeds and actions determine his place in the universe, as opposed to being an animal governed by his carnal desires and primal urges.

In protecting their unfounded, materialist dogma, the resistance of these psychiatrists escalated to the point where they began to oppose anything to do with the Methodology. Even after viewing miracles never before seen, with their own eyes, they continued to ignore the scientific results of EGM in order to return to the “safe” world of theory and conjecture to which they had become accustomed. Consequently, this great scientific breakthrough was ignored. No longer were attempts made to incorporate the Methodology into the global treatment strategy for which it had originally been sought.

The psychiatrists conjured up an objection that EGM had no structure, and was not scientifically based. They claimed the Methodology required no formal training for those who wished to practice it, only some sort of special powers being necessary to be considered for training.

None of these objections have basis in fact. EGM is a unique branch of Divine science with a complete doctrine and manual for practice. Therapists are formally trained at one of the few Quranic Science Institutions and must receive certification before implementing the Methodology into practice.

The training is often more rigorous and detailed than Western psychiatric programs because of the subject matter being dealt with.

Once the program is complete, students go through an intense period of testing that can often last for many months before they can be certified. An extra caveat to this is that therapists MUST adhere to the same spiritual and moral standards that are required by patients receiving EGM treatment.

If a person meets the prerequisites, he or she is an acceptable candidate for training in the Methodology.

In conclusion, the current condition of the approach to mental disease is dismal, at best, in regards to patient care. If the present psychiatric movement continues to ignore the true spiritual nature of mental disorders, the trend of mental illness will continue until there will be no hope for those suffering from psychiatric maladies. Let’s pray that it will not come to that!

As always, only from Allah (Glorified and the Most High is He) can we be healed!
