Introduction: This study aimed at exploring the association of religion and sense of well-being in an Iranian adult population of Muslims.
Method: The subjects were 50 clients (31 females and 19 males, average age of 61.36 years) at a
cultural and art center in a park in Shiraz. Data were collected using the Scale of Religious Activitiesand Diener’s Satisfaction with Life Scale. Data were analysed using descriptive methods, correlation coefficient, multivariate regression analysis, and t-test.
Results: Results showed that saying the main prayers is a powerful predictor of subjective well being. Also, having religious friends and religious spouse, paying Islamic taxes, inviting others to be religious, and religious speculations were good predictors of subjective well-being.
Conclusion: These results are in accordance with religious instructions and especially Holy Quran verses, and the previous studies that considered religion as a factor of subjective well-being.
