    Collecting different testimonies on the issue — In an interview for the New Scientist (August 26, 1976) Dr Abdus Salam said: “Every human being needs religion, as Jung has so firmly argued; this deeper religious feeling is one of the primary urges of mankind.” (Salam 1976).

    God is In Charge — Ibn Abbas relates that the Holy Prophet Muhammad said:I was riding behind the Holy Prophet (saw) one day when he said: Boy, I would instruct thee in some matters. Be watchful of Allah, He will be watchful of thee. Safeguard His commandments; He will be ever with thee. When thou must ask, as of Allah alone; and when thou must seek help, implore Allah alone for help. Remember that if all the people were to combine to bestow some benefit upon thee, they would not be able to bestow anything upon thee except that which Allah has appointed for thee, and that if all of them were to combine to harm thee, they would not be able to afflict thee with anything except that which Allah has decreed against thee. …Safeguard the commandments of Allah, you will find Him before you; remember Him in prosperity, He will remember you in adversity. Be sure that that which has led you into error will not lead you aright, and that which has guided you to good will not lead you astray. Remember that help comes with steadfastness, there is prosperity after adversity and that hardship is followed by ease.http://muslimsunrise.com/dmddocuments/2010_winter.pdf

    Will Japan face a mental health crisis? — (CNN) — The frightening disasters in Japan are mounting. Despite workers’ Herculean efforts to prevent a complete meltdown at the country’s earthquake-ravaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the situation appears to be growing more serious. In fact, each of the catastrophes that have struck Japan since last Friday–the earthquake, the tsunami and now the potential of nuclear calamity–would have been singularly perilous to the Japanese public’s psychological well-being. Their collective impact on mental health is unimaginable.And mental health is just as important as physical health. We know from years of research that poor mental health leads to physical health problems, diminished quality of life, work-related problems, social and family dysfunction, and even early death.When the partial core meltdown happened at the Three Mile Island plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in March 1979, people in the surrounding communities were frightened and bewildered by the confusing and contradictory information being disseminated about what exactly was occurring at the reactor and whether their health was at risk. Moreover, the population nearby was advised to evacuate and evacuation discussions were also held as far away as Philadelphia.http://www.cnn.com/2011/OPINION/03/16/bromet.psychological.effect.japan/index.html
