The right to happiness is one of the natural rights of man. Since an important part of the right to happiness and perfection of man is realized when a person has the physical and mental health, therefore, the natural rights of no one can be ignored or the origin of it is eliminated. What has been mentioned is the hypothesis of this article. Therefore, our hypothesis is that the natural rights of every human being provide the natural foundation of his happiness and the violation of these rights through the violation of his rights or the temporary barrier to using it or causing permanent harm to its source that exists inside the human being in the form of natural and instinctive laws leads to the need for double compensation. In some situations such as the recent one, government on behalf of the community must compensate for the loss of the natural right of the victim through positive discrimination in the long term. Given the special privileges for those who have sacrificed themselves for the sake of bliss, can be proven in two ways: human rights and citizenship rights. This article focused on veterans and devotees in the Iran-Iraq war.
