Introduction: Perception of god is a major and fundamental basis for formation of relationships between people and social community. In fact, a more conversant and deeper perception of god could enhance one’s quality of daily interactions and behavior. The aim of this study was to determine the dimensions of perception of God on hemodialysis patients of Qazvin city.

For gathering information about perception of god, Lawrence’s questionnaire of perception of god was employed. Analyzing the data was conducted via IBM SPSS Statistics v. 22 and its descriptive tools.
Results: Findings from the current study indicated that among subscales of perception of god, “providence” with a mean and standard deviation of 33.6 ± 3.2 was at the highest level and “influence” with a mean and standard deviation of 31.2 ± 34 was at the lowest level. Moreover, the ratings of perception of god in female samples, with a mean and standard deviation of 195.6 ± 10.3, was higher than male counterparts.
Conclusions: According to the findings derived from this study and sexual differences, with holding training courses on topics like familiarization with concept of perception of god and its subconscious effects on daily life interactions, self-care capacity, and quality of life in hemodialysis patients could be improved.
