The spiritual health refers to the health of human spiritual dimensions that includes all levels of the non-material aspects (mind, intellect, heart, etc.) of human. Rumi and Forum have considered"Knowledge and Truth" as one of the major causes of mental (spiritual) health. This issue does have a pivotal role in their teachings. Despite the distance of time and space and differences in their cultures and approaches, abundance of sharing can be found in their words. This suggests propinquity with Rumi’s mysticism and Forum’s thoughts on this subject.
Both scholars believe in the truth in human being and the surrounding world, and they consider human as being talented and capable of recognizing and achieving that truth and neither rely on the theoretical knowledge. Therefore, both of them emphasize on the "practice the right" and adhere to ethical principles and values and requirements - to achieve higher levels of perception of the truth.
Both have considered some influences for the "perception of the truth" and those influences are the primary requirements of the dimensions of human spiritual health. It can be said that "Knowledge and the Truth" are not only anultimate for the creation of human nature and human life, but also a genuine need for spiritually becoming and staying healthy and human beings would be suffering from spiritual and mental illnesses without them.
