Hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah

Research at Oxford University has found believers can rely on their religion to endure suffering with greater fortitude. The academics at The Oxford Centre for Science of The Mind built the study on 24 participants, 12 of them are Roman Catholics and the other 12 are atheists. The volunteers were not told the true purpose of the experiment, only that it was designed to judge how people felt pain while contemplating pictures of different things.

The researchers found Catholics seemed able to block out much of the pain when they saw religious pictures but there was no such brain activity among the atheists, whose pain and anxiety levels stayed roughly the same throughout the experiment when the researchers showed them an ordinary photo.

Participants spent half an hour inside an MRI scanner, receiving a series of 20 electric shocks in four separate sessions while looking at either religious or non-religious picture

The researchers added that the front right-hand side of the brain of the believers lit up on the scanner, indicating that the neural mechanisms of pain modulation had been engaged but there was no such brain activity among the atheists.

Scientists claim to have discovered that faith in God really can relieve pain

 Writing in the scientific journal Pain, the researchers concluded that at least some religious believers can moderate their pain by thinking about it more positively.

As long as, there is a direct effect of watching religious pictures on reducing pain so we can understand why the remembrance of Allah Almighty makes hearts feel rest. Allah Almighty says:

(Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest)

{Sûrat Ar-Ra‘d-The Thunder -verse28}

Western scientists discovered this fact only these days but the question is who told our illiterate prophet peace be upon him that fact in a place full of illiteracy and underdevelopment?

The answer is Allah Almighty who says about Himself :

(All-Knower of the unseen and seen, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.)

{Sûrat At-Taghâbun-Mutual Loss and Gain -verse18}.
