Researcher and University Lecturer


How religious values ​​have dealt with epidemics throughout the history of the world's religions has been a challenge for their followers. The maximum attitude of religions towards life has exacerbated these challenges; But as attitudes have been minimized, the challenges of science in the face of epidemics have increased. The coronavirus was not just a universal disease; Rather, it was the socio-political shock that gave rise to the critique of socio-economic policies, a shock that could bring about fundamental change; Changes similar to the history of Iran may not have experienced. It seems that extracting the strengths and weaknesses of this issue in the field of religions with the approach of defending values ​​can be measured by the "SWAT" model. The important point is that superstition among religious values ​​has always reduced the role of religion in life and has reduced the level of faith of followers of religions. The theory of this issue is closely related to the project of superstition and exaggeration in the process of spreading religion in the religious community.
Accordingly, this study seeks to answer the question of how religious concepts and values ​​can be extended in the face of epidemics?
In order to answer this question, the results of the research have hypothesized that whenever religions are exaggerated, they have lost their ability to grow in the face of social and natural crises. On the other hand, according to the purpose of this study, which was to play the essential role of religions in the development of human life, is an indicator of the pattern of interaction between religion and science; Therefore, the method used in this research, comparative studies with interdisciplinary method, has made possible the extensive interaction between religion and science.
Findings show that the realization of values ​​in the theoretical and practical field is an effective element of religion and science in human life that provides progress in material and spiritual dimensions; Therefore, the usefulness of the idea of ​​the interaction of science and religion for the followers of Islam is the achievement of this article.
