New Discovery: Benefits of Reading the Qur’an

Al Watan


Vander Hoven, a psychologist Dutch, announced his new discovery about the effect of reading the Qur’an and repeating the word ALLAH in patients and normal people.

The Dutch professor confirms his discovery with studies and research applied on many patients for three years. Some of his patients were non-Muslims, others do not speak Arabic and were trained to pronounce the word “ALLAH” clearly, the result was great, especially on those who suffer from dejection and tension.

Al Watan, a Saudi daily, reported that the psychologist was quoted to say that Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Quran regularly could protect themselves against psychological diseases. The psychologist explained how each letter in the word “ALLAH” affects healing of psychological diseases.

He said in his research that pronouncing the first letter in the word ‘Allah’ is the letter (A) releases the respiratory system, controls breathing.

He added that pronouncing the consonant (L) in the Arabic way, with the tongue touching slightly the upper part of the jaw producing a short pause and then repeating the same thing, pause constantly, relaxes the aspiration. Also, pronouncing the last letter is the letter (H) is a contact between the lungs and heart and alternately in heartbeat. What is fascinating about the study is that this psychologist is a non-Muslim, but interested in Islamic sciences and searching for the secrets of the Koran.

Allah, the Great and Glorious, said ‘we will show them our signs in the universe and through themselves, until it manifests itself’ (remember that in our Duaah) Allahu Akbar: Allah is great.
