One of the factors that plays a key role in mental health is spiritual intelligence. Today, psychologists consider the importance of religious and spiritual concerns in their work, whether in general or more specific in the case of psychotherapy. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate carefully the concept of spiritual intelligence in Islam and psychology.
