O people! A reminder from your Lord has come to you, a healing for those in the hearts, and guidance and mercy for the believers.
(Yunus 57. Verse)
It is estimated that more than 350 million people worldwide suffer from the negative effects of depression. Antidepressants are recommended by doctors as a treatment, but instead of full recovery, quite a large number of patients are exposed to serious and harmful effects of drugs, along with partial or no recovery.
Spirituality is often based on dealing with mental problems or stress. The effects of faith are now regarded not only as a matter of faith, but also science. "The miracles of spiritual recovery should be considered the latest medical technology," said Dr. C. Callender, Head of The Department of Surgery at Howard University. 1Mike Fillon: Science and Spirit, p. 37, Kenneth Pargament: the Psychology of Religion and Coping. p. 210
Reading or listening to the Quran provides significant benefits to general health along with stress, mental health and memory. Especially stress can pave the way for the development of many diseases, negatively affect the immune system, and over time a more conducive and more acidic environment occurs in our body for diseases. The immune system and the nervous system are closely related, and the brain and immune system interact routinely in both disease and health. 2https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5866360/
It is a condition that Allah declares in the Qur'an that those who are far from spiritual ity live with such stress, "Whoever turns away from my remembrance has a distressed livelihood for him..." (Taha 124)
Some scientific studies on the positive health effects of the Holy Quran:
"Paying attention to important factors in strengthening memory leads to the development of the learning process of students. Different methods are designed in this field, but we cannot accept and realize them all for students of different ages. However, by listening to the Qur'an for 15 minutes a day, we can improve the memory of students without using any other skills or training. Therefore, academic centers and school administrators have been advised to use this strategy as a memory strengthening technique and to observe the achievements of their students." 3https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S187704281305338X
"Reading the Quranic verse warns of the formation of Alpha waves and a more relaxed atmosphere that allows the individual to learn in a calm state and receive the necessary information for problem solving. As a result, this study showed that neural feedback training and the application of Ayetel Cure for stimulants affect memory development among participants. There is a difference between the effects of the Ayetel Cure during reading and listening during training."4http://www.jised.com/PDF/JISED-2017-04-06-03.pdf
"In the dictionary,the hafiz(pluary huffâz), an adjective derived from the root of the hafiz in the arabic word "to protect, to memorize", means "protect, memorize", and it is called the hâfiz who memorizes the entire Qur'an. This study was carried out to investigate the effects of memorizing the Koran in relation to academic success and socio-cultural life. For this purpose, 36 Hafiz examples from different colleges and universities were discussed. The results were compiled and evaluated as SPSS, Content analysis technique and percentage. The results revealed an important difference in the academic success of Memory before and after memorization. In addition, content analysis has shown general positive effects on Hafiz's education and socio-cultural life." 6http://jiscnet.com/journals/jisc/Vol_3_No_1_June_2015/8.pdf
"In this study, 50 participants were used before and after listening to the Quran. The participants were 26 men and 24 women aged 19-22. All participants took two tests. The first test was conducted after listening to the Quran and the second test was after listening to the Quran. All participants performed a memory test using the software program that runs memory. The results showed that the average ability of short-term memory without listening to the 11.8 Quran and the average ability of short-term memory listening to the Quran was 12.62. Based on these results, it is known that listening to the Qur'an provides a significant increase in the brain's ability." 7https://www.matec-conferences.org/articles/matecconf/abs/2018/13/matecconf_icet4sd2018_01060/matecconf_icet4sd2018_01060.html
"This research explores and compares the effects of listening to the Quran and classical music on the human brain wave using EEG. The EEG signal was recorded for three situations before, during and after listening to the Koran and classical music. 28 healthy participants were randomly selected among mara university students between the ages of 20-28. During this experiment, each sample was exposed to The Surah Yasin from the Qur'an and Canon D in Pachelbel's classical music. Interview sessions were held before eeg signals were obtained. The correlation results between left and right brain waves show an increase of 12.67% when listening to the Koran, and the increase in classical music is at 9.96%. This finding shows that listening to the Quran enhances the alpha band more than listening to classical music." 8https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/abstract/document/6169696
"A total of 168 participants were randomly divided into three groups. The translation of group I and the publication of the Quran, group II received the Publication of the Quran without translation, and Group III was the control group. After the intervention, the perceived scores of stress, situation anxiety, persistent anxiety and depression in group I and group II were significantly lower than in the control group. The Quran, which is not translated or translated, is effective for reducing stress, anxiety and depression during pregnancy." https://www.researchgate.net/ 9.00.
"From the study, the EEG power spectrum was proven to be high in the frequency range of the alpha band compared to reading a book while reading the Quran. In addition, FFT analysis shows that the Alpha wave is higher than reading books when reading the Quran. As a result, based on the analysis of each wave of tape obtained from standard 10-20 electrodes, it is suggested that reading the Koran leads to people resting and calming down." 10https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1877042813036525
"The results showed significant differences in average mental health scores between test and control groups after listening to the Koran (P = 0.037). There was no significant gender difference in the test group before and after the intervention (P = 0.806). These results suggest that listening to the Koran may be recommended by psychology experts to improve mental health and calm down further." 11https://www.researchgate.net/publication/259722053_The_Effect_of_Holy_Quran_Voice_on_Mental_Health
"Human sentimentality affected by the recitation of the Qur'an was clearly presented according to the relevant studies. There are many factors that affect human emotions, such as heart rate variability and respiratory behavior. The recitation of the Qur'an provided significant relief that the Qur'an has a special effect on the human heart, which leads to certain hormones and chemicals being responsible for relaxation." 12http://hrmars.com/hrmars_papers/The_Effect_of_Recitation_Quran_on_the_Human_Emotions.pdf
Those who do not seek healing from the Qur'an will not be healed.
