Asghar Hadavi Kashani, Marziyeh Sadat Razavi, Maryam Hadavi


Lifestyle is a reflection of the culture and civilization of a society and adherence to moral and social values. The product of this adherence is a system based on those values which, if derived from religious faith, results in a faithful life. The aim of this study is to provide a model for this type of life, which has been done by using narrative data taken from "Muntakhab Mīzān al-Ḥikmah " and by "grounded theory" method. The research findings show that the central category of this model is the faithful lifestyle that ontology, theism believing in resurrection are its causal conditions that are formed in the context of religiosity, faith, piety and good governance. Interventional conditions include: moral, social, economic evils and family injuries. In order to achieve the dignity of this world and the hereafter, which is the output of this model, one must use belief, worship, moral, social, economic and health strategies.
