The family, as a social institution, is entitled to some rights vis-à-vis other social phenomena such as the media. Some of the family's spiritual rights have been mentioned in the statute and some in Islamic sources. Expounding on these rights when affected by the media, and determining instances of their being neglected which cause spiritual damage to the family institution, is a necessity. This research has picked up the element of loss from civil liability and spiritual damage compensation, in order to analyze the spiritual damage inflicted on the family. This is also an introduction to provide the way for future set up of the regime on spiritual damage compensation as caused by the media in the Iranian legal system, so that judges could benefit from it in their media-related cases, and no damage of the kind could escape unpunished.
