Abstract:   (3640 Views)
It has been over five decades since the concept of “spiritual health” was first introduced in academic texts, and although many studies have been conducted on the subject, there exists no consensus on its definition and components yet. Nonetheless, this concept has been an inextricable part of Islamic Theology, which is more than several hundred years old. Therefore, it can be asserted that observation and analysis of the lifestyles of Muslim scholars may shed some light on this seemingly complex concept. This analytic-descriptive article was designed to provide a straightforward definition for spiritual health and explore its different components from the viewpoint of Ayatollah Hassanzadeh Amoli, a renowned Shiite scholar. In this article, spiritual health refers to the health of the soul and is related to both material soul and the body itself. The Ayatollah puts special emphasis on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and on the health of the material soul in order to promote spiritual health. In this article, we endeavor to conduct a thorough analysis of the lifestyle and views of Ayatollah Hassanzadeh Amoli.
