The modern world offers multifarious facilities to make life easier for all of us, yet these facilities are unable to address our spiritual needs fully. The human being is considered within the boundaries of his physicality and his other dimensions have been ignored. However, the human is not only a biological structure; his nature encompasses non-physical dimensions as well. With all his faculties, the human being has a natural inclination to turn everything around him into objects each one of which becomes a “world” for him. This research aims take a Qur’anic perspective to the perceptions of the worldly life and their effect on psychosomatic-spiritual illnesses. We argue that one can develop both physical and spiritual resistance and strength if he can bring meaningful interpretations to his worldly perceptions. While describing the human with his positive and negative qualities the Qur’an narrates that the worldly life is the most significant obstacle one can be defeated against. Spiritual problems become unavoidable when one feels trapped in a metaphorical meaninglessness in his perception of this world which is in fact created for him.
