Aims: The aim of this study was to design the soldiers’ death anxiety structural model based on social intelligence, moral intelligence and religious orientation.

Materials & Methods: 340 soldiers in Maragheh in 2018 were enrolled in this study using cluster sampling. Lennick & Kiel moral intelligence questionnaire, Tromso social intelligence scale, Templer death anxiety scale and Allport & Ross religious orientation questionnaire were used for data collection. The data were analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficient, Bootstrap and Sobel test using SPSS and Amos22.

Findings: The direct effect of moral intelligence, social intelligence and intrinsic religious orientationwere significant in estimating soldiers’ death anxiety. The indirect effect of moral intelligence (t-value=4.7) and social intelligence (t-value=4.4) by mediating internal religious orientation on the soldiers’ death anxiety were significant. Generally 30% of death anxiety variance was explained by the variables of the model.

Conclusion: Death anxiety can be reduced by enhancing social intelligence, moral intelligence and intrinsic religious orientation.
