Introduction: Many people think that the happiness means the dance and stomp, while the real happiness should be sought in the spirit and it can be acquired through the religious beliefs and orientations. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of spiritual intelligence and religious orientation with happiness among the students.
Methods: Statistical population of this study included all bachelor’s students of Kharazmi University. Among them, 288 students were selected through stratified sampling proportional to size using Cochran formula and were asked to fill King’s spiritual intelligence questionnaire, Alport religious orientation and Oxford Happiness Scale. Data were analyzed via SPSS 22 using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression and independent t-test.
Findings: The results showed that there was a significant positive relationship between spiritual intelligence (r=0/24, p=0/03) and intrinsic religious orientation (r=0/031, p=0/006) with happiness. However, there was no significant relationship between happiness and external religious orientation (r=0/11, p=0/30). Spiritual intelligence, internal and external religious orientation predicted 0.699, 0.096 and 0.062 of the happiness variance, respectively. Moreover, no significant difference was found between male and female students in terms of religious orientation, spiritual intelligence and happiness.
Conclusion: Regression analysis showed that spiritual intelligence had the highest contribution to their tolerance. Finally, it can be said that people who have intrinsic religious orientation, only for personal interests do not pretend to be religious, and have spiritual high intelligence enjoy higher happiness.
