Abstract

The current study was carried out to investigate the impact of religiosity on life satisfaction among Christian and Muslims. The Religious Commitment Inventory-10 by (Worthington et al., 2003) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) by (Diener, Emmons, Larsen, & Griffin, 1985) were used for data collection. The sample of the current study comprised of 140 adults further divided into Christian (n = 70, 50%) and Muslims (n = 70, 50%) with age range from 25 to 77 year (M = 34.74, SD = 13.94). Linear and Hierarchical Regression analysis was applied to investigate the impact of religiosity on life satisfaction. Results showed that religiosity has been positively associated with life satisfaction. The finding’s revealed Muslims are more religious than Christian and Muslims have a high level of life satisfaction than Christian. Moreover, non-significant gender differences were found in religiosity. The present study is an important addiction to investigate faith groups in terms of the role of religiosity in life satisfaction.
