Our Journey to Empower Mental Well-being

Our Mission

Grounded in Islamic traditions, Maristan aims to lead professional clinical care, education, and research in advancing holistic, mental, and spiritual wellness.

Our Vision

Maristan strives to revive the Islamic legacy of research and education that informs holistic healing and provides culturally and spiritually congruent, professional, accessible, and affordable mental health care for all.

Maristan Today

Our online clinical, educational, and research-based Maristan initiative was inspired by the historical function of traditional Maristans. Our goal is to revive the Islamic traditional function of Maristans with research and education, stemming from the work of the Stanford Muslim Mental Health & Islamic Psychology Lab, to inform holistic healing for our clients and provide culturally and spiritually congruent, professional, accessible, affordable mental health care for all.

Dr. Rania Awaad, President of Maristan, discusses the alarming rise of Islamophobia and the “modern media machine’s” messaging that enforces the othering of Muslim communities. The surge in hate incidents, notably in the United States and across the West, has been enabled by anti-Palestinian and anti-Muslim rhetoric. This has profound repercussions for the health and wellness of the Muslim community…

“By diminishing the complexity of individuals and essentializing Islam, these colonial powers created a seedbed for the dehumanization and generalization of people today perceived to be Muslim or Muslim-adjacent. And perhaps most importantly, these kinds of hate crimes and the rise of Islamophobia have extensive, negative mental health impacts on Muslim communities in the U.S. and around the world.”

Ramadan Series

While we are quick to address the bodily discomforts we experience, how often do we truly acknowledge the silent battles within?

In this Maristan Ramadan series, join Dr. Rania Awaad and Shaykh Tariq Musleh on a journey inward. We will delve into the intricate relationship between the body and soul, and uncover the underlying emotional conditions that inflict our inner selves.


Guided by Abu Zayd al-Balkhi’s رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ timeless 9th century work, “Sustenance of the Soul,” we will become more adept to heal and navigate through the trials and tribulations in our lives.
