The healing Power of Koran: Between Science and Faith
By Abd AL Da'em Al-Kheel
translatet by Bayan Taleb
Revised by Magdy Abd Al_shafy
There are many cases cured every day by reciting the Koran; we cannot
deny that because recovery does happen; it happened to me when I was
reciting specific verses for a specific illness and the illness was
Koran Healing is a critical issue which wasn't given enough study or
research, so I thought about starting this journey and asked Allah to
guide me, give me the useful knowledge, show me the right and help me
do it, and show me the wrong and help me avoid it. One of the most
important fruits of this research, which continued for years, was that
I came out with an important result: Allah had put in every verse of
the Koran a healing power for a certain disease if this verse was
recited for a specific number of times.
In the beginning
When we contemplate on the universe around us, we notice that every
single atom is vibrating in a specific frequency, whether this atom is
part of metal, water, cell, or anything else. So every thing in this
universe is vibrating, this is a given scientific fact. .
The basic structure of the universe is the atom, and the basic
structure of our bodies is the cell; each cell is made of billions of
atoms and each atom is made of a positive nucleus and negative
electrons rotating around it; because of this rotation, an
electromagnetic field is generated similar to fields generated by an
The atom is the basic structure in the universe and in our bodies; it
is constantly vibrating which means that every thing is vibrating
according to a precise system. Cells vibrate in a precise system, and
any vibration around us affects our cells.
The secret that makes our brain think is an accurate program inside
the brain cells; this program is inside every cell doing its task
precisely; the smallest defect in its job would cause imbalance and
disorder of some of the body parts; the best cure for this imbalance
is to restore balance to the body. Scientists discovered that body
cells are affected by various vibrations such as light waves, radio
waves, sound waves etc. But what is sound?
Each cell in our body vibrates in a precise system, and the smallest
change in this vibration would mean an illness of some part of the
body. That's why these damaged cells should be vibrated to restore
balance to them.
We know that the sound is made of waves or vibrations moving in the
air in about 340m/sec. Each sound has its own frequency, and human can
hear from 20 frequencies per second to 20000 frequencies per second
(1). These waves spread in the air and then get received by the ear,
then turn into electrical signals and move along the acoustic nerve
towards the acoustic bark in the brain; the cells correspond to the
waves and move into the various parts of the brain especially the
frontal part; all these parts work together corresponding to the
signals and translating them to a language the human understands.
Thus, the brain analyses the signals and gives its orders to the
various body parts to correspond to these signals.
The sound is made of mechanic vibrations that reach the ear then the
brain cells which correspond to these vibrations and change their own
vibration; that's why the sound is considered an effective healing
power depending on the nature of the sound and its frequencies. We
find the healing power in the Koran because it is the book of Allah.
From here came sound therapy; the sound is a vibration, and body cells
are vibrating, then the sound influences these cells. This is what
researchers discovered recently; in Washington University late in the
twentieth century, scientists found that the job of a brain cell is
not just to transfer information, each cell is a small computer
working on collecting information, processing it, and giving orders
continuously round the clock. Ellen Covey, a researcher in Washington
University, says that it is the first time that we realize that the
brain does not work as a big computer, but it contains a huge number
of computers working in a cooperative way, there is a small computer
in each cell, and these computers are affected by the vibrations
around them, especially the sound (2).
Experiments show that inside each cell in the brain there is a tiny
computer which Allah deposited an accurate program that directs the
cell and controls its work. They also show that the sound affects the
cell; this is a picture of a cell getting affected by a sound and an
electromagnetic field is being formed around it.
Thus, we can say that the cells of each body part vibrate in a
specific frequency, and form a complicated and coordinated system that
is affected by any sound around it. So, any disease affecting any part
of the body will cause a change in the vibration of this part's cells
and thus causing it to deviate from the general body system affecting
the whole body. This is why, when the body is exposed to a specific
sound, this sound influences the vibration system of body and
especially the irregular part; this part would respond to specific
sounds to restore its original vibration system or, in other words, to
restore its healthy condition. Scientists discovered these results
What is the story of this science (the sound therapy)?
Sound therapy story:
Alfred Tomatis, a French doctor, made experiments for fifty years
about the human senses and came out with the result that the hearing
sense is the most important sense!! He found that the ear controls the
whole body, regulates its vital operations and the balance and
coordination of its movements; he also found that the ear controls the
During his experiments, he found that the hearing nerves connect with
all body muscles and this is the reason why the balance and
flexibility of the body and the sight sense get affected by sounds.
The inner ear is connected with all the body parts such as the heart,
lungs, liver, stomach, and the intestines; this explains why sound
frequencies affect the whole body (3).
In 1960, the Swiss scientist Hans Jenny found that the sound affects
the various materials and reform their particulars, and that each cell
of the body has its own sound and gets affected by the sounds and
rearranges the material inside it (4). In 1974, the researchers Fabien
Maman and Sternheimer made an astonishing discovery; they found that
each part of the body has its own vibration system, subject to physics
laws. A few years later, Fabien and Grimal, another researcher,
discovered that sound affects cells especially cancer cells, and that
certain sounds had stronger effect; the strange thing the two
researchers found was that the sound that had the strongest effect on
body cells is the sound of the human himself!!
The sound moves from the ear to the brain and affects the brain cells;
scientists recently found that the sound has a strange healing power
and an amazing effect of the brain cells which work on restoring the
balance to the whole body! Reciting Koran has an astonishing effect on
these cells and is capable of restoring their balance; the brain is
the organ that controls the body and from it the orders comes to the
rest of the body organs especially the immune system.
Fabian, a scientist and musician, put blood cells from a healthy body
and exposed them to various sounds; he found that each note of the
musical scale affects the electromagnetic field of the cell; when
photographing this cell with Kirlian camera, he found out that the
shape and value of the electromagnetic field of the cell change
according to the sound frequencies and the sound type of the reader.
Then he made another experiment taking a blood drop from one of the
patients, and then he monitored the drop with Kirlian camera and asked
the patient to make various notes. He found, after processing the
pictures, that on a specific note the blood drop changes its
electromagnetic field and fully vibrates responding to its owner. He
thus concluded that there are specific notes that affect the body
cells and make them more vital and active, even regenerates them. He
came out with an important result: The human sound has a powerful and
unique influence over body cells; this influence is not found in any
other instrument. This researcher said literally:
"The human sound has a special spiritual ring making it the most
powerful healing device (5). Fabien found that some sounds easily
explode the cancerous cell, and at the same time activate the healthy
cell. The sound affects human blood cells which transfer the
frequencies of this sound to the whole body through the blood
A cancerous cell exploded by using sound frequencies only!! That's why
reciting the Koran has a great impact on treating the most danger
cancers and incurable diseases!
But is this influence limited only to cells? It became clear that
sound affects everything around us. This is what Masaru Emoto, a
Japanese scientist, proved in his experiments on water; he found that
the electromagnetic field of water molecules is highly affected by the
sound, and that there are specific tones that affect these molecules
and make them more regular. If we remember that the human body is 70%
water, then the sound the human hears affects the regularity of water
molecules in the cells and the way these molecules vibrate, thus
affects his healing (6). Different researchers confirm that the human
sound could heal many diseases including cancer (7). Sound therapists
also confirm that there are certain sounds that are more effective and
have a healing power especially in increasing the immune system
Water molecules shape changes when exposed to sound; thus, sound
greatly affects the water we drink. If you recite the Koran on water,
its characteristics would change and it would carry the Koran effect
to every cell in the body causing them to heal !In the picture, we see
a frozen water molecule; the electromagnetic field around this
molecule changes continuously because of the sound effect.
How Koran heals?
Now, let's ask the important question: what happen inside body cells
and how does sound cure? How does this sound affect the damaged cells
and restore their balance? In other words, what is the mechanism of
Doctors are constantly looking for means to destroy some virus; if we
think about the mechanism of this virus, what moves it and makes it
recognize its way to the cell? Who gave the virus the information
stored within which enables it to attack the cells and multiply
inside? What moves the cells against this virus to destroy it while
stand helpless in front of another virus?
Viruses and germs also vibrate and are highly affected by sound
vibrations especially the Koran sound; it stops them and at the same
time increases the activity of the healthy cells and revives the
disrupted program inside so to become ready to fight viruses and
The Koran recitation is made of a group of frequencies that reach the
ear then move to the brain cells and affect them through the
electronic fields these frequencies generate in these cells; the cells
would respond to these fields and modify their vibrations, this change
in the vibration is what we fell and understand after experience and
It is the natural system that Allah gave to the brain cells, it is the
natural balance system; this is what Allah told us in the holy Koran:
(Allah's handiwork according to the pattern on which he has made
mankind: No change let there be in the work (wrought) by Allah: that
is the straight religion, but most of men know not) (Al-Rum, 30).
A real picture of a blood cell that was exposed to the sound and
started changing the electromagnetic field around it; the sound of the
Koran changes the information this cell carries and makes it more
capable of fighting viruses and the defect Resulting from malignant
What are the healing verses?
Dear reader, each verse of the Koran has an amazing healing power for
a specific disease; what is confirmed is that the Prophet, Allah's
peace and blessing be upon him, focused on specific chapters and
verses, such as reading Al-Fatiha seven times, Al-Kursi verse (verse
number 255 in Al-Bakara chapter), the last two verses of Al-Bakara
Chapter, and the last three chapters of the Koran.
But the whole Koran heals; you can, dear brother, read the verses that
you hope to cure your illness. For example, if you feel upset, focus
your reading on Al-Sharh chapter (Have We not opened your breast for
you); if you have a sever headache, read: (Had We sent down this Koran
on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and
rending asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which We
put forward to mankind that they may reflect) (Al-Hashr, 21); if you
are suffering from pimples, warts, or skin problems then read: (then
it is struck with a fiery whirlwind, so that it is burnt) (Al-Baqarah,
If you are afraid, keep repeating Korish chapter, especially the
verse: (and has made them safe from fear) (Korish, 4). A strong cure
of depression is the repetition of these verses from the Holy Koran:
(O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord (the
Koran) and a healing for the diseases in your breasts, a guidance and
a mercy for the believers* Say: "In the Bounty of Allah, and in His
Mercy (i.e. Islam and the Koran); therein let them rejoice." That is
better than what (the wealth) they amass) (Yunus, 57-58).
The greatest prophet peace be upon him used to say hundreds of
supplications every day, do you think he was doing it in vain? He was
asking Allah to protect him from evil, including diseases. You can say
the supplication that protect you from diseases every day: (I seek
refuge in Allah's perfect words that are obeyed by the faithful and
the immoral from all that He created, made in earth and originated
from it, from all that come from heaven and ascend into it, from the
seductions of the day and the night, and from the night and day
visitors except those who bring good, O you most Gracious). Don't you
agree with me that this great prophetic supplication is the best
protector from any disease?
Thus, dear brothers and sisters, you can find in the Koran and Sunnah
a cure for any disease whether psychological or physical; it is
preferred to read the verses in a loud voice so to make your body
cells get affected by the sound of the Koran, and to focus on the sick
part and imagine that Allah has cured it; repeat these verses and
start each time with Al-Fatiha and finish with Al-Falaq and Al-Nas.
You can also ask for the verses that are relevant for your disease.
O Allah, make the Koran our cure for every disease.
