Background: The holy Quran is the curative that after its cure, there is no fear of disease anymore. One of the miracles of Quran is its effect on service and medical care duties. Noticing the key role of nurses in offering health service to patients and the importance of the nurses’ mental health, this study was conducted. Materials and Methods: This educational trial was done on 55 nurses at educational hospitals of Arak University of Medical Sciences through randomized simple-sampling. Before and after intervention, the GHQ-28 questionnaire was completed by the participants. Data were analyzed through descriptive statistics, paired t-test, and Chi square. Results: The mean age of the nurses was 34.45±6.3 years, and 68.2% (30 participants) of them were married and the rest were single. The mean mental health scores before and after intervention were 27.75±9.76 and 22.34±7.83 which indicated a significant difference (p<0.014). Conclusion: The findings of this study suggest that this intervention has been effective in reducing mental health scores and somehow, in improving the nurses’ mental health status. On the other hand, participation in the familiarity with Quran workshop can improve the nurses’ mental health.
