Publication history:


For any person, no matte at which age, peace, hope, and satisfaction are the priorities. Especially when it comes to adulthood or later, the people remain in search of self-compassion (Khan & Kawa, 2015; Lawler-Row, et al., 2005). Different people have different views regarding achieving satisfaction, and thus scholars have also debated in this field from different perspectives (Maltby, Day, & Lewis, 2010). Some of them found positive co-relation between self-compassion, whereas some indicated the strongest relationship between self-compassion and psychological well-being (Dyke, Glenwick, Cecero, & Kim, 2009). However, some of the authors have highlighted that psychological well-being and self-compassion is highly based on spirituality and religiousness (Khashab, Khashab, Mohammadi, Zarabipour, & Malekpour, 2015). Spirituality and religiousness have been playing an important part in humans’ life, and are generally associated with human satisfaction (Toussaint, Marschall, & Williams, 2012). It is a belief of all, no matter belonging to which religion, that God has given them life with a purpose (Ismail & Desmukh, 2012). God has guided the human being through different Prophets that life is given to bring positive change in the society, and thus it is obligatory to follow ethical and moral rules of life, in order to keep peace and happiness in the regions (Lawler-Row, et al., 2005). The people are guided to tell truth, forgive others, help the nations, remove hunger, smile, spread happiness, remain positive, be ethical, and morally deal with others in society (Yang, Zhang, & Kou, 2016). When people follow their religious guidelines, they find them being forgiven by God and feel as achieved something marvelous in their lives (Dyke, Glenwick, Cecero, & Kim, 2009; Lawler-Row, et al., 2005). This is what gave them psychological peace and keep them satisfied (Koenig & Larson, 2001).
