Introduction: Patients treated in hospital often experience an uncomfortable condition. This condition can lead to a decrease in performing salat as a Muslim prayer. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of individual coaching on the spirituality of Muslims including knowledge, attitude, and the practice of salat. Methods: This study used a quasi-experimental design. The sample consisted of 36 Muslim inpatients. The data was collected through a self-constructed questionnaire and it was analyzed using the independent t-test and Mann Whitney test with α ≤ 0.05. Results: There was no significant difference in the scores for knowledge (p=0.941), attitude (p=0.924) and practice (p=0.635) between the two groups before the intervention. However, after being given the intervention, the scores increased for the treatment group, thus creating a significant difference between the treatment and control groups for knowledge (p=0.000), attitude (p=0.003) and practice (p=0.000). Conclusion: Coaching is a suitable method to use to increase the Muslim inpatients' knowledge, attitude, and ability to practice salat. This study recommends that the nurses conduct coaching as a nursing intervention to help the patient to perform salat.
