The Holy Quran , the eternal Book , is the Book that leads to the belief in God , It gives no room to doubt .On reading the Holy Quran you can see and feel verses overflowing with miracles -Among these miracles are the scientific miraclesAs we live now in the age of science , The Holy Quran -as it was its habit -challanges this age of science with scientific facts that were revealed more than one thousand years ago . In the Holy Quran you can find scientific miracles relating to every branch of science . These miracles are meant to prove that the Holy Quran is God's Book. Among the newly discovered miracles in the Holy Quran is what is scientifically known as The memory of cells .In a short jurney , we will live with these verses and ponder about the latent meanings in them , then we we will compare them with the newly discovered facts about the memory of cells .
Verses in the Holy Quran that deserves pondering and speculation
God (Allah) says in the Holly Qur’an what means :
((For, Believers are those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts, and when they hear His signs rehearsed, find their faith strengthened, and put (all) their trust in their Lord)) verse 1 Surah Spoils Of War, Booty
This great Verse is a sign denotinghow theheart works, many scientists say that the heart isa just a pump of blood only and it hasnothing to do with emotions or feelings
Allah says also what means : ((Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. For without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction)) Verse 28,Surah the Thunder
Also Says ( That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, but a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease and who are hardened of heart: verily the wrong-doers are in a schism far (from the Truth)))
((And that those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may learn that the (Qur'an) is the Truth from thy Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may be made humbly (open) to it: for verily Allah is the Guide of those who believe, to straight way))Verses 53, 54 Surah the Pilgrimage
Also ((Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so that he has received Enlightenment from Allah, (no better than one hard-hearted)? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the praises of Allah. They are manifestly wandering (in error)!))
((Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah’s praises. Such is the guidance of Allah. He guides there with whom He pleases, but such as Allah leaves to stray, can have none to guide)). Verses 22, 23 the Troops, Throngs
(( Has not the Time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been revealed (to them), and that they should not become like those to whom was given Revelation a foretime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard? For many among them are rebellious transgressors)). Verse 16, Surah 57. Iron
From all the above Verses we can see that the heart is far more than a simple pump of blood but it can be involved in perception, cognition, and emotional processing as fear, love.
In the next paragraphs we will prove according to scientific evidence and through stories from the west media, published in the most famous newspapers and magazines that the heart is not only a pump, which will lead us to the conclusion that Qur’an is a book from Allah Who knows every secret in the hearts.
Allah also says (( Has not the Time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been revealed (to them), and that they should not become like those to whom was given Revelation a foretime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard? For many among them are rebellious transgressors.)) Verse 16 Surah 57. Iron
In 29th of May 1988 a successful heart and lung transplantation was done on a women called Claire Sylvia, these were taken from an 18 -year old male who died because of a road traffic accident, after Claire’s recovery she started to behave like a male and began to eat some food that she could not tolerate before such as green pepper, beer and chickens. When she met the family of that man they said " her behaviour is exactly the same as their son!!!"
Some scientists ignore this story, others took it as evidence to what is called today the Cell Memory
So what is the Cell Memory?
The theory of the Cell Memory states that every cell in our body contains information about our personalities and our history not only that but each cell has its own way of thinking.
So according to this when an organ is transplanted from one person to another ,its cells carry all its memory to the new body and by implanting more than one organ there will be more cells containing more memories.
Dr kandis Burt (author of the Book Passion Molecules) found out that cells in the human body exchange messages with each other by short chain of amino acids which, in the past , were thought to be found only in the brain but proved now to be found also in other internal organs such as the heart and the important organs and that memory (of things ) is not only stored in brain but also it is stored in the internal organs cells and on our skin cells .( Refrence 10)
Dr Andra Armour gave us another concept in 1991 by stating that there is a small brain in the heart which is composed of a network of neural cells, proteins and supporting cells, all of these things work in an independent way from the brain and they send information to the brain and as a result of that he thinks that the neural cells in a transplanted heart will send signals from its stored memory to the brain of the new person.
Paul Persil ,a scientist in neuroimmunology (author of the Heart Code) , did research in 2002 (changes in the behaviour of the recipient people resembling the donors).
The research was conducted on 74 cases ,including 23 heart transplants within 10 years; he found things in some cases difficult to be believed!!
An 18- year old young man , who liked poetry, music and singing died in a car accident ,his heart was transplanted in an 18- year old girl, the operation was successful, after recovery she met the parents of that deceased young chap, she surprisingly played the same music and sang the same song that he used to play she sang completing the song till its ending although she did not hear them from the deceased before!!
A 47 -year old white man had a transplantation of a heart from a 17- year old African American, The recipient was surprised after the operation because he started to like classic music , he discovered later that his donor used to like that kind of music too!!
After a young chap had had a heart transplantation , he discovered that he started to use a strange word that he did not use before; after he had met the wife of the donor he found that she and her husband used to use this word as a code between them that indicated that everything is OK!!
A heart transplant was done on an eight -year old girl , the heart was taken from a ten- year old girl ,who was stabbed to death in her lung (her heart was unscathed). About 2 months after she got the heart, she began to have horrible nightmares. She began to describe someone coming out of the shade and stabbing her. She got to the point that -in her dreams- she actually could see the man. She identified him, she told the police where to go get him, on arresting the man , heconfessed .
The effect of the heart on the brain:
Scientists always think that the heart responds to the signals that come from the brain but now they have found that it is bilateral dynamic relation .
the heart sends signals to the brain in many forms such as:
1- Neurologically through electrical impulses.
2- Chemically through Hormones & Neurotransmitters.
3- Physically by pressure waves.
The electromagnetic field.
The electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is approximately 5000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers.
The picture shows the heart electromagnetic field ,which is the most effective in the human body ; it does not only encircle every cell in the body but it also goes out to the surrounding place , it can be estimated or detected several feet a way from the body with sensitive magnetometers
The figure shows us when two people come near each other or touch each other, how one’s heart affect other’s brain waves
On the right side of the figure you can see when the two subjects hold each other's hands ; a transfer of electrical energy is transmitted from (B's ) heart to A's Brain and this can be detected by the EEG
In University of Arizona, now, one of the scientists is doing research on 300 heart transplantation trying to prove the cardio electric theory which states that there is an exchange of energy and information between the heart and the brain by using the electromagnetic field ,he is trying to find how many recipients did feel changes in their personalities or their diet , also trying to answer questions according to the ethical point of view ; if someone receive a heart from a criminal what will happen to him ?
Our conclusion, from all the above mentioned words , Is the Qur’an a book of truth and it is as Allah describes it ((No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise)) Verse 42 Surah (signs) Spelled Out
All the evidence that we gave proves the relationship between heart and all the spiritual things and conditions of faith ..
((On the Day when their tongues, their hands, and their feet will bear witness against them as to their actions))
.Verse 24 Surah Light
We will write a separate research if God will to talk about the properties that the heart have according to Qur’an according to the a scientific view. We will see that every word mentioned in Qur’an is scientifically true proving that the religion is not a myth as defined in some Encyclopedias.
In Fact , the Holy Quran is a Divine Book ; Each word , each letter contains in itself a miracle , this to enhances the belief of those who believe in it and draw their attention to the miracles in the universe and man's creation . It gives all the colours and addresses all the cultural levels . The uneducated and uncultured can find what convince him of the divinity of its source and enhance their belief . Contrary to the Holy Books , it stands alone in face of atheism and refutes its alleged concepts . People , in the time of the prophet , kept it to their hear and many of them died in defence of it and so did the following generation . Nowadays , and with all the scientific findings that we hear about every moment , the Holy Quran stands alone unshaken while the others did not . It is the only Book that has remained unchanged and undistorted without the least word or letter interpolated . This Holy Book addresses the human psyche . It builds up and even shapes the Moslem character through some verses that focuse on the role of man in this universe. God Shows man his role in the universe so as to understand his importance in the universe .God says in the Holy Quran in this concern what means " And when7 thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth…………….(2:30)
In Islam , man is not just a creature who spends a period of time and then leaves , Man is honoured in the Holy Quran and is always under God's care , Man does not stand alone in this universe.
God says in the Holy Quran in this concern what means". Verily We have honored the children of Adam. We carry them on the land and the sea, and have made provision of good things for them, and have preferred them above many of those whom We created with a marked preferment.
Quran is the only Book that gives a true picture of God . In the Holy Quran God is not incarnated or humanized
"Say: He is Allah, the One! , Allah, the eternally Besought of all!, . He begetteth not nor was begotten. . And there is none comparable unto Him."
God says in the Holy Quran what mean " Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light, Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is knower of all things.(24:35)
Naught is as His likeness; and He is the Hearer, the Seer. (42:11)
When you read the Holy Quran , you can feel a merciful hand patting on your heart removing sadness and desperateness . It is includes within itself all the sciences and knowledge that man has reached and even that man hasn't yet , you won't lose time if you read it . It even talks to the infidels and is keen on removing atheism . Those who are skeptic of God can find answers to their questions . God says in the Holy Quran what means ". We shall show them Our portents on the horizons and within themselves until it will be manifest unto them that it is the Truth. Doth not thy Lord suffice, since He is Witness over all things? (41:53)"
