A Study of Islamic Teachings on the Prevention of Psychological Violence in the Family

Marzieh Mohases


As any violent behavior and word that imperils the mental health of others, psychological violence is one of the issues and problems that have several negative outcomes on the family life of individuals. Nowadays, since the issue of psychological violence has received further attention, it seems necessary to analyze the Quranic view in this field in order to respond the ambiguities in this field. In this descriptive-analytical study, the Quranic teachings on the prevention of psychological violence in the family were observed and it was found that Quran contains family-specific moral teachings that are effective in achieving peace and avoiding psychological violence; The need for compassion, adherence to the marriage contract, the need for decent behavior and the need for forgiveness in the family are the most important of these specific moral teachings of the family. On the other hand, the Quran advises everyone in society to self-control in social relations, pay attention to religious values, and following these general principles in social relations is also effective in reducing psychological violence in the family as the smallest social institution.
