The study aimed to evaluate the correlation between religious attitude and quality of life (QOL) of 100 chronic renal failure patients under hemodialysis treatment. Data collection applied the questionnaires Socio-Demographic Data Form WHOQOL-Abbreviated Scale and the Religious Attitude Scale. The analyses revealed that component 1 of Religious Attitude Scale showed a correlation with the psychological domain of the WHOQOL-short (r=0.21, p<0.05); component 2 correlated with QOL level of independence (r=0.28 , p<0.01); component 3 correlated with the level of independence (r=0.22, p<0.05) and with the social relationships domain (r=0.22, p <0.05); satisfaction with QOL correlated with religiosity 2 (r=0.22, p<0.05) component. Thus, one may conclude that religiosity is a source of comfort and hope to patients, providing overall well-being.
