The Islamic Sharia is observed in its consideration for human beings in various aspects of their lives. This includes its consideration for the human psyche, its needs, and the changes and conditions it may undergo. When examining the texts of the revealed scriptures, one cannot help but be amazed and bewildered by the detailed and extensive guidance provided for the human psyche. This guidance can be categorized into exhortations and encouragements, as well as prohibitions and deterrents. In this study, the researcher has presented these aspects under detailed titles that serve the research without unnecessary elaboration, respecting the specificity of the research paper. The researcher adopted the analytical review methodology, gathering and analyzing Quranic verses and Prophetic traditions related to the human psyche. These were then organized into systematic categories, followed by an elaboration with insights from scholars and commentators to serve each category. The study concludes that Islamic Sharia has taken a keen interest in guiding the human psyche to achieve stability and ensure its well-being. It emphasizes the individual's pursuit of excellence to become an active and contributive member of society.
