Introduction: Although nutrition is not the absolute reason for morality and behavior in humans, it can be regarded as the basis for it. Because one of the goals of the Prophecy of the prophets is to expand the moral virtues, especially that of Prophet of Islam (PBUH) which is to “complete” or to “perfect” the moral virtues, it is necessary to study the role of nutrition and its effect on morality based on Qur'an and hadith and the viewpoint of Muslim scholars, in particular the theory of Bodily Created-ness of Human Soul.
Methods: This review study was conducted through searching some websites including Google Scholar, SID, Noormags, and digital libraries such as Noorlib, in order to access the previous studies on the relationship between morality and nutrition, the created-ness and the evolution of the soul and its relationship with nutrition.
Findings: The relationship between nutrition and morality is explained based on the verses of Qur'an, narrations (hadiths) and the viewpoints of Muslim scholars, including the belief in Bodily Created-ness of Human Soul in the transcendental wisdom. In general, regarding the type, quantity and quality of the food, nutrition has an undeniable effect on morality of people.
Conclusion: Changing eating habits can cause changes in morality and behavior. Therefore, some moral and behavioral abnormalities may be modified by changing the bad eating habits of a society.
Keywords: Nutrition, Morality, Qur'an, Hadith
