Abstract

This article is aimed at understanding the Islamic perspective of the self and how youths of today exhibit ambiguity of both personal and social identity by diverting from true self. These youths are prone to adopting western values and beliefs and thus shifting away from the deeper connection of one’s personality with Islam. In this battle of who they are they are unable to attain inner peace and tranquility and may engage in unhealthy behavior with poor self-control, unstable self-esteem and decreased psychological well being. Hence the best mechanism in searching for True-self is bridging one’s connection with the Divine Almighty Allah and thus realize that true self is as clearly defined and exemplified with the teaching of Islam. And, also keeping faith on Day of Judgment and on rewards and punishments on our good and bad deeds.
