Introduction and purpose: The diagnosis of cancer in children is considered a crisis for the family causing some disturbances in the quality of life of parents. One of the best strategies to improve the quality of life is resilience. Resilience refers to adaptation to diseases and stressors in life. Religious beliefs also play an important role in social and psychological life and resilience. The present study was conducted to demonstrate the relationship between religious beliefs with the quality of life and resilience of mothers of children suffering from cancer.
Methods: This descriptive correlational study was carried out on 123 mothers of children with cancer referring to the Cancer Ward of Taleghani hospital in Gorgan, Iran, in 2019. The data were assessed using demographic information questionnaires, Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale questionnaire, Khodayariʼs religiosity questionnaire, and Weitzner’s Caregiver Quality of Life Cancer Scale questionnaire. The data were analyzed using SPSS software (version 17), Pearson correlation coefficient, and linear regression. A p-value of less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant.  
Results: The results of Pearson correlation coefficient indicated that religious beliefs had a significant positive relationship with resilience; however, there was no significant difference between religious beliefs and quality of life.
Conclusion: According to the obtained findings, religious beliefs are effective factors in the resilience of mothers of children suffering from cancer; therefore, it is necessary to find a way for the development of useful clinical services and appropriate counseling programs to improve the quality of life of these mothers and their children.
