The work is composed of the heart beat and its link to the Quran, research shows that the Quran lowers blood pressure and soothes the heart beat. Scientists today speak seriously of a brain in the heart, consisting of forty nerve cells, what we call the mind is located in the center of the heart, which is directing the brain to perform its functions, and therefore God made the heart a means by which he says:
“So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.” (46)
