In conducting his research, al-Qadhi uses the help of cutting-edge electronic equipment to detect heart rate, muscle endurance, and skin resistance to electricity.
The discovery was then presented at a seventeenth annual conference at the University of Islamic Medicine in northern America held in the city of Sant Louis in the Mizore region, in August 1984. This finding shows that the Qur’an reading had a major effect (up to 97% in giving tranquility and healing illness.

The study was conducted as many as 210 times which is divided into 2 sessions, which is reciting the Qur’an in spell and reading Arabic which is not from Al-Qur’an.
From the results of this study, it can be concluded that the respondents (volunteers) get a calm up to 65% when listening to the recitation of the Qur’an and get the tranquility only 35% when listening to Arabic that is not from the Qur’an.

During the first two years the child experienced the biggest explosion in terms of brain development and the relationship between cells (connections).
Then a year later the brain has more than 300 trillion connections, a condition that is difficult to occur in adulthood, especially old age. Hence the development of children’s experts called the age of a toddler as a golden age for the development of child intelligence.
Indeed, if a parent does not take advantage of this opportunity by helping out the back, it will not affect the child’s brain’s ability to weave neurons, as the opportunity to strengthen the wide-open brain connections during childhood. But of course it would be better if the parents also actively help.
The brain has grown long before the baby is born.He has begun to work with the result being a priority sensing seed. Generally hearing first. So, during that time it is imperative to always present a conducive environment and good for brain development.
The loss of this environment will only make the brain suffer and idle which in turn affects the level of intelligence. In regard to efforts to improve the Muslim personality, babies should have been read Al-Qur’an recitations since in the womb.
So, if there is a suggestion to pregnant mothers to diligently reading the Qur’an before delivery, there is a scientific basis as well. The better and true the reading, including the song, the better the result.

This is also pointed out by Dr. Nurhayati in his research, “babies aged 48 hours later heard verses from the Qur’an from tape recorders show a smile response and become more calm”.
- Stage development of childhood (2-12years)
In this stage, the child’s personal development begins with the development of the child’s sense functions to make observations.
- Stages of development of pre-adolescent (12-15 years)
At this stage the development of the intellectual reasoning function of the dominant child. Thus, the stimulation of the Qur’anic verses that are heard when the child is still in the womb is very influential, and the results will appear at this stage.
The more often the children hear the verses of the Qur’an since in the womb until this stage will be the better the intellectual development and emotional development of children.
- Stage period of adolescent development (15-20 years)
At this stage, in the Qur’an is also called the period of “adultery” (self-adorned). At this stage the child becomes interested in the opposite sex.

9. Overcoming Babies Often Crying
Parents do not need to be sad and panicky when their children cry often. Look for the cause, because every problem or disease there must be a cure. Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala says:Actually after the pain there is ease. (Surat ash-Syarh : 6)
The Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said:
“Allah does not bring down the disease but He also lowered the medicine.” (Narrated by al-Bukhori 19/89)
One way to calm a fussy and crying child is through prayer. We recommend this prayer you keep reading when the child is crying. Whenever done, blow on the crown of the child.
This prayer we quoted from the work of Muhyiddin Abu Zakaria Yahya bin Nafawi al-Nawawi al-Dimasyqi, Al-Adzkar al-Muntakhabah min Kalaami Sayyid al-Abrar, (Surabaya: Kharisma, 1998), p. 302:
بسم الله الذي لا يضر مع اسمه شيء في الأرض ولا في السمآء وهو السميع العليم
Bismillâhilladzî lâ yadlurru ma’a ismihi syaiun fil ardli wa lâ fis samâ`i wa huwas sami’ul ‘alim (reads three times)
“By calling God’s asthma, the Essence which is with His asthma, will not be able to harm anything that exists on earth and the heavens. He is the Hearer, the Knower. “
10. Benefits For The Body
Islamic medical doctors say the experiments conducted by Dr Al-Qadhi prove that there is a 97% positive effect on experimental subjects who listen to readings from the Qur’an compared to those who only listen to Arabic texts.Other research on the effects of chanting the Qur’an brought by researchers from Japan named Dr. Masaru Emoto.
As High Existence reported, Dr Emoto shows a result of observations related to changes in water when read out prayer, played music, and in certain environments.
Dr Emoto then invited a photographer to photograph his findings. When it turns out that water is read out prayer and good words have a shape like snow crystals.
While the results by using inappropriate words such as ‘I will kill you’, even when spoken by the dictator ‘Hitler’, the water molecule looks irregular. It turns out that the words spoken on the water have the same impact as the polluted environment and also the pollution free.
Water with a polluted environment appears to have an abstract shape, whereas the water in clean environments has the same molecule when it is recited.
This suggests that good speech may affect the change in the shape of a previously negative-looking molecule into a more positive one. The thing we need to remember is that most of our bodies, 70% of which are fluids.
11. Heal From Sick
The explanation of the benefits of the Qur’an in the medical world is acceptable to reason. Explain that every cell in the human body vibrates in a thorough system. The slightest change in this vibration will cause potential illness in various parts of the body.
Well, these damaged cells must be vibrated back to restore balance. To continuously sound is required. So came the Voice Therapy found Dr. Alfred Tomatis, a doctor in France.
While Dr. Al-Qodhi found that reciting the Qur’an in a voiceless manner gave a tremendous influence on brain cells to restore its balance.
Subsequent research proves that cancer cells can be destroyed by using the sound frequency. And again proved that reading the Qur’an has a great impact in the process of curing diseases of cancer caliber.
Viruses and germs stop vibrating when recited verses of the Qur’an. And at the same time healthy cells become active. Then restore the balance of the affected program. On the other hand, a survey shows, the sound that has the most influence on the body’s cells is the voice of the owner of the body itself.
12. Improve Morality In children
Children who during the period of pregnancy routine listening reading al qur’an usually will grow more conspicuous than children his age. In addition, attitude and behavior also reflect strong Islamic values. One of the behaviors that indicate a high level of morality in a child that he will be easy to realize mistakes commonly done by children level.
Suppose the child has been reminded of a mistake made, usually as soon as possible will have the desire to apologize first.
13. Increase Creativity In Children
Children who are used to hearing al-Qur’an reading will have high memory. Memory or sharp memory makes this child easy to memorize, especially rote al qur’an. In addition to the intelligence in terms of memorization, children who used to be recited reading al qur’an since in the womb will also have a high level of creativity.
