Recitation and listening to Quran makes you relaxed, relieves anger, stress and anxiety. There are some surahs and verses which can help reduce anxiety, their meaning and messages can help people alleviate depression. Quran is a reminder for all the Muslims, it is a reminder that we as Muslims have a life after our death, and that is the real life. So, we should not take tension of this life, as this is temporary.


Many studies have proven that balanced and rhythmical sound waves have positive effects on the body. That is why wave sound vibration is now commonly used by therapists to treat patients who are suffering chronic diseases like cancer. Besides, sound therapy is also useful for treating some psychological diseases such as Schizophrenia, Anxiety, sleeping problems and some bad habits such as smoking and drug addiction. People suffering from these diseases are often treated with wave sound therapy by their therapists. It helps reduce the symptoms and cure the diseases.

Listening to Holy Quran gives the same positive effects. It is because the sound waves from the Quran recitation are rhythmical, and it helps to rebalance the brain cells which in return will increase our brain capability and performance. All you need to do is listen to Quran being recited. There is no effort in listening, right? You can listen to Quran audio while cooking, jogging, cleaning, driving or even doing your job. 


Quran help the people to establish moral values and avoid misdeeds for the sake of the Allah, which is also helpful for the society. Understanding Quran develops desires of worshiping and obeying Allah. Obeying Allah means to be pure from in and out. Following Allah’s commands naturally develops a feeling of inner satisfaction which ultimately heals the soul.

What is more awesome is the fact that this beneficial discovery of Quran healing effects has been stated in the Holy Quran. Allah says in the Book in Surah Al-Isra’: 82:

”And We send down of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism and act on it), and it increases the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers) nothing but loss.” [Quran Al-Isra’ 17: 82]

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also used Quran as medication. When he was ill, he would recite Quran. This was narrated by Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her). This healing method is called Ruqyah and is well known among Muslims. This practice is performed by reading Quran or Dua prescribed by Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for the purpose of physical and spiritual healing. Ruqyah can be done by the person himself or doing it for other people as a form of care. This practice had been performed by our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his friends since a long time ago.

Don't worry if you don't happen to know the quranic ayats (verses) for Ruqyah, the Quran Lamps featured on this website have a built in function with a button to play some of the well know quran verses related to Ruqyah

As Muhammad the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had performed it himself, it is considered as Sunnah. And living the Sunnah is of course the best way of life.
