Unlike the 1<sup>st</sup> session of the congress which was held in 2013, with the theme of “<em>The Need to Apply the Paradigm of Tawhid as an Alternative to the Secular Paradigm</em>”, and the 2<sup>nd</sup> session congress that was held in 2016, with the theme “<em>Incorporating Moral Values and Maqasid Al-Shari’ah into Medical and Health Care Practices”</em>, the focus of the 3<sup>rd</sup> session of WCII 2021 was incorporating ethical values and <em>Maqasid al-Shariah</em> in sustainable healthcare, with the theme “<em>Mental Health and Well-being in the 4<sup>th</sup> Industrial Revolution</em>”. It served as an academic platform for researchers, scientists and academicians to share their research findings describing traditional and latest applications and practices of medical and health sciences, and the role of moral values and <em>Maqasid al-Shari’ah </em>in harm reduction and sustainable wellbeing in this field.</p> Sarah Rahmat Copyright (c) 2021 Revelation and Science Tue, 06 Jul 2021 00:00:00 +0800 Contemporary Psychological Disorders and the Spiritual Therapy from the Qur’an and the Sunnah <p>The COVID19 pandemic continues to create havoc, fear and anxiety. More and more people are experiencing serious psychological and mental health issues. Reports show increasing trends toward self-harm, self-injury and incidents of suicide or attempted suicide in Malaysia today. With the increase in mental health issues among Muslims, it is crucial that Muslim practitioners, psychologists, psychotherapists and counselors explore the Islamic religious and spiritual resources from the Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah to find ways and means of addressing and overcoming various problems of mental and emotional distress: depression, anxiety, stress, paranoia, excessive fear or excessive anger. The Qur’an and Sunnah offers a treasure of approaches, solutions and answers to several issues of mental health today, promoting physical, moral, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual resilience that are absent from mainstream conventional Western psychology and psychiatry. Muslims patients should seek Islamic spiritual remedies, which would complement the mainstream medical or counseling solutions, remembering that the latter are secular-based with limitations and shortcomings, if not negative side-effects. The Islamic approach is holistic—but it does not preclude proper medical or psychiatric treatment for certain symptoms or ailments. It is not limited to the biological or social dimensions of mental distress but goes beyond. It seeks a complete and holistic solution by understanding the underlying spiritual roots or ailments of human psychological distress or mental disorders with the aim to bring about lasting as well as sound psychological growth of human beings, who are essentially spiritual and moral beings created by God.</p> Mohd Kamal Hassan Copyright (c) 2021 Revelation and Science Tue, 06 Jul 2021 00:00:00 +0800 Diversity of Decapods in Penor River Estuaries in Kuantan, Pahang <p>Decapods play an important role as in maintaining ecosystem to be in balance as well as one of protein sources to human. At juvenile stage, they inhabit estuaries to get nutrition and protection from predators. Aquatic diversity supports in playing roles to maintain ecological structure and food chain in the system. However, the study of diversity of decapods is still lacking in Pahang waters. Therefore, this study was carried out in order to study and identify the decapods found in one of the most active estuaries in Pahang. The sampling and samples identification was conducted to identify diversity and abundance of decapods in Penor River-estuary. Specimens were collected from three different sites from using traditional fish trap locally called ‘temerang’. The samples were collected and identified into genus level based on their external morphological characteristics. The data recorded were analysed using Shannon-Wiener and Simpson’s Diversity Indices. The highest diversity of decapods found at Penor River-estuary was Site 3 and Site 2, while the lowest diversity of decapods recorded at this river is Site 1. The most abundance decapods in Penor River-estuary were Brachycarpus, providing insight that this species availability in all three sites.</p> Muhammad Fitri Yusof, Siti Waznah Abdurahman, Ahmad Azfar Mohamed Copyright (c) 2021 Revelation and Science Tue, 06 Jul 2021 00:00:00 +0800 Basic Immunology: Vaccination and Herd Immunity <p>The current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infection cases range from mild to deadly. The virus has brought the world down to its feet. Knowledge application to battle COVID-19 indicates that humans can fight any deadly malady if they have proper immunology education and know humans’ immunity pattern. This paper introduces the basic knowledge of immunology, the components, and the actions of immunity. The idea of vaccination and the controversy regarding this topic is mentioned. The study found the importance of vaccination and herd immunity, with the example of the current case of the COVID-19 pandemic.
