Abstract EN

The study is a socio-psychological analysis of recurrent well-wishing utterances or expressions Jordanians usually use when they visit patients or react to the Facebook posts of patients.

Studying a collection of 33 recurrent utterances and expressions gathered from four active accounts on Facebook shows that these expressions are loaded with the cultural dimensions of reception and acceptance of pain and how the Islamic culture provides a positive attitude that furnishes a reassuring factor that helps in recovery.

The study means to demonstrate that expressions are normally based on and derived directly from the Holy Qur’an, Hadith of the Prophet, and the principles established in Muslim education.

With the studies of Hamidi et al.

(2010), Rassool (2015) Risor (2009), and Richardson (2012) and others in the backdrop, the study will demonstrate that the Islamic views on perception and acceptance of sickness and pain converge with and go beyond modern medical and psychological practices.
