Hope, Patience, Counselling, Destiny, Mercy


Hope is essential in healing. Hopeful people are less depressed and enjoy well-being. The counsellors strive to produce hope and make the client optimistic about the future by solving his issues and dilemmas after identifying them. Several attitudes obstruct becoming positive and optimistic. Practitioners have been finding the venues through which they can create hope in the disheartened. This study aims to identify these venues through the Holy book: the Qur’ān. It creates Hope in the reader implicitly or explicitly. The study is qualitative research that uses a content analysis approach to comment on the 12 purposively selected Holy verses from the Qur’ān in terms of how they can be helpful for the counsellors, in their counselling sessions. The researcher concludes that all the selected verses talk about hope indirectly or directly. This book creates hope through different strategies like forgiveness, patience, destiny, the mercy of God, etc. These verses are useful for different kinds of traumas and depressions like disaster trauma, hardships anxiety, or loneliness depression.
