"As you ask me to pinpoint one thing which I found consistent and different in my practice of psychiatry, let me tell you first that being a psychiatrist and a muslim together was very interesting for me, particularly after my training in western institutions. One phenomenon which remained very attractive for me was talking to patients with 'near death experience' (NDE). All of my those patients consistently described their loved ones who are already dead to be on other side waiting for them. I found it very bizarre that none out of many hundred patients recalled seeing an alive person. I always wondered, is it all anoxic brain tissues which give consistent physiology of NDE or is this real meta-physical and spiritual thingy".
