Scientists: Read the Quran Healthy Physically and Spiritually

The Quran is known as the Holy Book of Muslims, in which there are instructions, guidelines and laws that Allah has set to mankind. In addition, the Quran can be used as a cure or antidote for someone affected by the disease.

This is what God says in the following letter:

“O people, a lesson has come to you from your Lord and a cure for diseases in the chest and guidance and mercy for those who believe.” [QS. Jonah verse 57]

As it turns out, that’s true. Researchers do a lot of research on the Quran, and the results are indeed surprising.

A Dutch researcher named Vander Hoven once gave a surprising statement. He said, “Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Quran regularly can protect themselves from psychological illness.”

And in 2009, Abdullah with his dissertation entitled “The Effects of Reading the Holy Quran on Muslim Students’ Heart rate, Blood Pressure and Perceived Stress Levels” also revealed the findings of a researcher from the University of Salford, Yucel Salih in 2007.

In the findings it was reported that there was an influence of quranic readings in the human body. The study involved 30 Muslim scholars majoring in psychology from the University of Salford, of which 15 men and 15 women were respectively.

The first experiment was conducted by dividing into two stages, first participants in heart rate, blood pressure and stress tests before reading and after reading Surah Alam Nashrah and Surah Al Rahman.

Then in the second stage, heart rate, blood pressure, and stress were measured before and after reading non-religious material written in Arabic.

The data analysis uses two factors, namely Anova and Post-Hoc Analysis. From the experiment it was found that participants who read the Qur’anic surah had decreased heart rate, blood pressure, and stress levels.

Proof of The Truth in the Quran

From these results, researchers concluded that reading the Qur’an is very beneficial for psychological and physiological health for those who read it. Meanwhile, such effects cannot be found in the recitation of non-religious material written in the same language as the Quran.

There are 3 types of nerves that are activated in the body when reading or listening to the Qur’an.

The results of the study were presented at the International Conference on Cross Cultural Collaboration in Nursing for Sustainable Development in Bangkok, Thailand, on September 9-10, 2013 and received positive appreciation from conference participants who are predominantly non-Muslim and graduated academic S2 and S3 levels.

From this research we can conclude that the Qur’an, in addition to being the Holy Book of Muslims, it can also be a cure for all diseases. In accordance with the following Qur’anic verse:

“And We have delivered from the Qur’an, an antidote and mercy to those who believe, and the Qur’an is not to be res ended.
