Data collection methods were semi-structured interviews, observation, taking notes from published papers, website surveys and social networks. Data were analyzed by conventional content analysis.
Results: Religious beliefs, as a moral motivating factor, had a positive effect on the health behaviors and spiritual health of people in the biological crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic. Community adherence to health standards, spiritual self-care, home care, and family participation in health services at prevention levels were consistent with scientific findings and religious evidence. Muslim people avoided doing things that endangered their own health or the health of others.
