      Background and PurPose: One of the most important issues in the modern age is hope for future and its reflection on individuals’ daily lives. Generally, hopefulness, which is influenced by several factors, is an essential component in increasing the quality of life. Piety is one of the significant factors, which is closely associated with this concept. Regarding this, the present study aimed to investigate the role of piety in the hope for future.
      Materials and Methods: This survey was conducted on 380 citizens of Azarshahr with an age group of 20-60 years, who were selected using clustering sampling method.
      Results: The results of ANOVA demonstrated that there was a significant and positive relationship between the piety and hopefulness and
its dimensions (P<0.05) (i.e., strategic thinking [P<0.05], reflection factor [P<0.05]), which indicates that with the increase of piety among the subjects,
hopefulness was increased as well. Furthermore, there was a high correlation between the variables.
     Conclusion: As the findings of the current study indicated, to increase people's hopefulness, it is essential to strengthen the religious beliefs in the process of socialization, fortify faith, and encourage people to participate in religious affairs at early age.
