Introduction: Health is a basic human need. Islam as a comprehensive and temperament-based religion does not waive any instruction to evolve the human’s soul and body, and the health education is also one of the strategies for promoting health of the communities. Spiritual health is one of the most important aspects of health, which plays an important role in providing physical and spiritual health for people. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the Islamic instructions on the health of soul and body.
Methods: This study reviewed the Holy Quran verses, Nahj al-Balaghah, narrations and interpretive and hadith sources. Data were collected via searching in the national databases, Google scholar, SID, IranMedex and PubMed with the keywords of soul health, body health, spirituality, spiritual well-being, religion and health, mental health, spiritual health, religion and health.
Findings: The results of this study show that the Islamic religion, in its teachings, on observing health and preventing diseases (especially oral and dental) has preceded treatment of diseases, and has provided many sentences and orders for this purpose. People with high attachment and trust in God are more capable of dealing with problems due to having supportive resources and thereby more capable of coping with psychological and physical problems, too.
Conclusion: Adherence and proper implementation of the instructions and teachings of Islam can lead to spiritual, mental and physical health for individuals and increase the sense of security and ability to deal with psychological and physical problems.
Keywords: Soul health, Body health, Islam, Quran, Spirituality, Spiritual health
