In designing an Islamic model of progress what element should be truly included
extensively in all its variables, without which one can reject it as a non-Islamic model?
How is it dealt with in view of the Holy Quran and Islamic traditions? These questions
helped us initiate a s tudy on the spiritual health epidemic for generalization of
spiritual behavior and for helping beliefs and spiritual affairs bloom in Islamic-Iranian
model of progress. On the other hand, this work intends to look at practical factors to
help overcome spiritual illness in Iranian society’s model of spiritual progress. This was
carried out through secondary qualitative analysis of the narrative data taken from the
Holy Quran and Islamic traditions. Findings show that the model’s target of promoting
spiritual affairs is among the mechanisms that will affect all human activities and as
the Holy Quran sugges ts, God-centered human activities in designing all model-based
variables is accounted as a principal hypothesis; and this can be a criterion for difference
between Islamic and Wes tern patterns. The material progress of the Islamic society, too,
undergoes a dras tic change with this criterion so that economy and occupational ethics
based on Islamic sys tem will shift away from object-orientation and profiteering toward
the Muslim people and a dis tinctive pattern with humanis tic approaches will be designed.
An innovation achieved through this research work is presenting s trategies for feeding
spiritual mechanisms in designing Islamic-Iranian model of progress.
