Existentialists tend to flavor the analysis of mood in approaching the meaning of life.

And the analysis of moods also tend to help us to understand at a deeper level what it means to say that a person exists.

One primary point that they make is that the attention to your moods reveals that your existence is special.
And moods also help us understand how we exist as opposed to what our existence looks like.
When you turn to the question of how we exist, we will discover through moods that we are always immersed within the world in a way or another.
We are always emotionally tuned into our unique life situations in some specific way.
Existentialists also believe that some moods are basic to existence than other moods.

Everyday moods:
These moods reveal more about our specific relationships with things that populate the everyday aspects of life.

Existential moods:
These moods bypass and disclose insights about the very structure of existence itself…
Or how we are related to being in the world as opposed to how we are related to the everyday aspects of life.

As we will see in the upcoming posts that the existential moods such as (anxiety) is important.
It is important because it gives us insights that we need to truly take charge of our lives and become truly free.
In Islamic existentialism the part of taking charge of our lives is important but in Islam we are not totally free.
