Muslim personality, Personality Structure, Psychological Struggle


This article discusses Muslim personality from the aspects of Personality Structure and Psychological Struggles. In Islam the Muslim personality is synonymous with Islamic morals, it is a harmonious blend of the system of the heart, reason, and lust that causes behavior and is a characteristic of Muslims. Because of that, the characteristic of a Muslim personality is that he always keeps his heart to obey Allah so that he always gets his light and keeps away from all his prohibitions which are human excrement. The structure of the Muslim personality includes three substances, namely body or body, spirit or spirituality, and nafsani or soul, the soul itself consists of the heart, reason, and lust. While lust consists of lust, anger, and muthmainah. All of these are the structures of Islamic personality, which if the system works well all will form the personality of a Kamil or a complete human being who is calm, always does good, tawakkal, and avoids despicable traits.
