Background and Objective

Modern and Traditional Medicine pay serious attention to causes of illnesses in the treatment of diseases. Understanding the cause is the first step in the fundamental treatment of diseases. The purpose of this article is to examine how committing sins affects some physical illnesses and to explain its models based on Islamic teachings.


This is a library-based and content analysis study. Initially, by searching the authentic Islamic sources, Jameu Al-Tafaseer, Jameu Al-Ahadith software, the primary data related to the research question were collected from databases such as Noormags, SID, Magiran, and ISC. These data were then analyzed according to the purpose of the study and their results were categorized. The authors declared no conflict of interest.


Findings show that sins are one of the factors contributing to some physical illnesses; Verses and traditions have confirmed this effect. Analysis of the findings showed that this effect can be explained by three models: direct effect by causing dysfunction of organs, indirect effect by causing mental and psychological problems and the immaterial effect.


Given the law of causality and the mutual effect of material and immaterial beings, committing sins is naturally a movement against the creation system and this lack of harmony with the creation system can cause some disturbances in the existence system including the human body causing physical illnesses.
