Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a study that examines the magnitude of and associations among measures of spiritual and psychological health in a sample of university students in a large Malaysian university. The current model of human health consists of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions. In the study presented here, the authors measured psychological health using measures of positive affect only. They used religious well-being and existential well-being as predictors and self-efficacy, self-esteem, and life satisfaction as outcome variables. The results provide some support for the notion that the students of the International Islamic University in Malaysia enjoy adequate spiritual and psychological health and that there is significant association between their spiritual health and psychological health. Additionally, the findings underscore the need for constructing new measurement instruments unique to Muslims within the Asian multicultural contexts for a comprehensive understanding of the spiritual health of Malaysian students.

Keywords: International Islamic University; Malaysian university students; psychological health; religious well-being; self-esteem; spiritual health
