Muslim women (n = 39) and men (n = 59) in Adelaide, South Australia were surveyed using the ONS-UK Personal Wellbeing questions (PWB) and Multicultural Quality of Life Index (MQLI). Pearson product-moment correlational analysis, multiple regression analyses, and Hayes’s PROCESS modeling showed spiritual fulfillment-MQLI as the strongest predictor of life satisfaction-PWB, and of PWB overall. Physical wellbeing-MQLI was the greatest predictor of worthiness-PWB. For Muslim women, low spiritual fulfillment-MQLI was positively correlated with high anxiety-PWB. Muslim religiosity is not often integrated into policy and practice frameworks in Australia, which has implications for social work practice with Muslim minority communities, more so with Muslim women.
