As a positive human trait, optimism plays an important role in his growth and development and constitutes the foundation of his social relations. It is defined as “the tendency to feel positive towards God, world, others, and oneself.” As hope, vivacity, peace, and consequently the health of religion are dependent on optimism, this article addresses this trait from the viewpoint of the Holy Qur’an as the holy book of Islam and Imam Ali (AS) as an infallible religious leader. It is an attempt to shed some light on optimism, its difference with naivety, its consequences, characteristics of the optimists, and methods to improve optimism on the basis of psychology.
