Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy, Psychiatry
We live in a world in which the shining Ummah completely lacks luster.
The times in which the best Ummah cuts a sorry figure.
Times in which the sons of Ummah hide their identity - they are ashamed of their association.
Times in which standards of excellence are in the hands of those people who are detractors of this Ummah.
There might be disciplines where Ummah is the rightful leader but mind is not exactly flooded with examples.
But matters related to psychology could be one area where might have a thing or two to tell the world.
Reason being the fact that our elders have continuously spent their lives in these pursuits.
This is the subject matter of mysticism.
Surprising not much is being discussed in this direction on SF.
Some how in this area too we have surrendered to the west - rather than Allah(SWT). May allah(SWT) forgive us.
So go ahead and do all you can to reverse the situation. Ask for Allah(SWT)'s help and bring a bastion to the fold of your beloved Prophet(PBUH).
