On the other hand, happiness is a goal pursued in all human communities, but it differs across individuals and cultures. Therefore, the present research aimed to investigate the correlation between happiness and Islamic life style in the students of Bandar Abbas University of medical sciences in 2015. 
Methods: The present descriptive-analytical research was conducted on 110 students affiliated with the nursing, midwifery and paramedical faculties of Bandar Abbas University. The data collection instrument was a questionnaire developed by the researchers.
