Abstract:   (215 Views)
Background: Although World Health Organization (WHO) has no unified definition of the spiritual health, but phrases such as "effect of the human spiritual on the body" and "regard to religious practices" are the most acceptable approaches among the researchers.  Research denotes that Holy Quran consists of approaches to acquire the peaceful heart in present life and the permanent health in hereafter. Accordingly, the study on spiritual health in Quran was carried out.
Materials and Methods: The verses related to the soul, heart, man, God, resurrection and so on were searched in Jame-Al-Tafasir software and texts and the verses related to spiritual health were selected and studied.
Results: A bunch of verses was about observes the introduction of human truth and its evolutionary strategies (anthropology), a bunch of verses was about  knowledge of God and his attributes (theology), and the other category are the end of man and his eternal life (resurrection).
Conclusion: Addressing spiritual health in the Quran will lead to the recognition of the truth of man and his attainment of the true perfection and comfort of the world and the hereafter. The Holy Quran has clearly articulated these foundations and strategies for achieving spiritual health.​
