Introduction: Undoubtedly, following religious laws is unseperatable part of every Muslim’s ‎life. Medical personnel especially nurses are the first ones who can guide patients regarding ‎their illness. Also since one of the important issues in nursing process is to alleviate patients’ ‎needs and spiritual needs are important and most people in our country are Muslims. ‎Therefore, religious laws that involve patients and nurses get special attention. Among these ‎religious laws are those related to parturition and nurses and Midwives should alleviate these ‎needs.‎

Objective: The goal of this study was to determine women’s Knowledge regarding religious ‎laws of parturition.‎

 Methods:‎‏ ‏This is a descriptive - analytic study. Sample consisted of ‎‏100‏‎ patients referring to ‎delivery ward in Emam Hassan Mojtaba Hospital for delivery or prenatal problems. Samples ‎were chosen by simple random method and data collection instrument was a questionnaire ‎which was completed by an educated questioner. Data were analyzed by SPSS.‎

 Results: Findings showed that the majority (‎‏57/3%‏‎) had moderate knowledge regarding ‎religious laws of parturition. Most (‎‏60%‏‎) samples didn’t even know the duration of ‎parturition and stated that the duration was ‎‏40‏‎ days. Only (‎‏11%‏‎) of samples had good ‎knowledge about praying during parturition. It’s necessary to say that according to X‏2‏‎ test ‎there was a significant relationship between knowledge regarding religious laws of parturition ‎and patient’s education(P=‎‏0.002‏‎), education of spouse(P=‎‏0.01‏‎) and occupation of ‎spouse(P=‎‏0.04‏‎).‎ Also according to Analysis Variance test there was a significant relationship between mean ‎score of knowledge and occupation of spouse (P=‎‏0.02‏‎). And according to Fisher test, there ‎was a significant and inverse relationship between practicing religious laws of parturition and ‎years of marriage (P=‎‏0.03‏‎).‎

Conclusion: Most samples had moderate knowledge, regarding religious laws of parturition ‎and this is weak for our Islamic society. Therefore this matter necessitates giving information ‎regarding religious laws because it can increase patients’ satisfaction of care. In attention to ‎weak knowledge of patients and since one of main problems in medical affairs is lack of ‎patients’ knowledge it is suggested to that patient teaching can be concluded that it is ‎necessary to educate the women to improve the patient regarding religious laws to become ‎one of medical team’s main duty.‎
