Considering the presence of mental disorders during illness or old age, it is necessary to pay attention to the mental health of the elderly. A modeling of the God’s attributes means that one understands God’s perception of his/her existential poverty; and on the other hand, one endeavors to work in the human domain in order to replicate and utilize the names and attributes of God the Almighty. For this reason, this study aims to determine the mental health (MH) assessment of elderly people with chronic pain (CP) based on Quranic components. The study is a descriptive cross-sectional study. A total of 138 elderly people who are aged over 65 years and had history of CP were enrolled. Data were collected using Islamic Questionnaire of Identifying God’s Traits in the same, and analysis was performed using SPSS ver. 16. The mean (SD) of age in elderly is 81.00 (12.07), and as the age increased, the God’s Traits score of the elderly increased (p = 0.003, R = 0.34). The mean overall God’s Traits score was 234.68 (3.61). In the elderly who lived with their spouse and had higher social support, the score of God’s Traits was higher (p > 0.05), but there was no relationship between other demographic characteristics and status of God’s Traits (p > 0.05). This study is the first study to evaluate the MH status of chronic patients based on Quranic components, and their MH status has been high. It is suggested that the relationship between MH based on Quranic components and variables related to health be measured. © 2019, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
