Religiosity, Coping, and Mental Health: Muslims & the COVID-19 Pandemic with Dr. Rania Awaad
Thursday, October 22 at 4 PM PST

The Stanford Muslim Mental Health Lab in collaboration with the Yaqeen Institue have conducted one of the first and largest studies focused on the diverse beliefs and practices of Muslims throughout different stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. From initial social isolation policies to anticipating and experiencing Ramadan without community, the effects of COVID-19 on Muslim mental health, coping behaviors, religiosity, and philanthropy varied widely amongst Muslims.

Through four large-scale surveys that captured the voices of nearly 9,000 Muslims at different stages of the pandemic, our findings explain the diverse opinions that Muslims have about COVID-19 theologically, their concerns about social distancing, attitudes towards closing the masjid during the pandemic, associations between psychological characteristics (e.g., gratitude and uncertainty intolerance) and religiosity on mental health, the religious experience of Ramadan in social isolation, and the correlates of Muslim marriages in social isolation. This talk will focus on core psychological and religious processes that permeate through the lives of Muslims to influence the way COVID-19 has been lived and experienced. Register here.
