Societies have constantly faced the phenomenon of crime; and not only crime prevention measures have not led to desirable reduction of crime and deviation rate, but also criminal titles have annually been increased. However, it is observed in Islamic societies that during some lunar months such as Ramadan, crime rate is considerably descending; this indicates the power of religion to prevent and reduce crime rate. Accordingly, an aim of the present research is investigating the role of religious teachings in crime prevention trend, especially growth-oriented prevention which requires investigation of the effective role of family, science learning and ethics and explaining practical approaches to prevent delinquency. The results of this research provides profound understanding of religious teachings for the families, society, science and training centers, legislators, and other authorities and causes an appropriate approach to prevent and reduce crime rate in the society which is considered as one of the major religion-based functions for desirable control of crime.
