Medical Journal Prints Article About Qur`an and Cardiovascular Health By TMO Stringer The International Journal of Cardiology has published a 5,000 word analysis of the beneficial and accurate teachings of Qur`an in relation to the heart. Mario Loukas, Yousuf Saad, R. Shane Tubbs, and Mohamadali M. Shoja together wrote this analysis, first briefly of the beneficial effects generally of Qur`an and Sunnah on health, and then more particularly focusing on their benefits in relation to cardiology. The study is written, either by non-Muslims or at least for the consumption of non-Muslims, so many Muslims will be somewhat offput by statements in the article, which refer to â€œthe authors of Qur`an.â€ However despite this the article is a beautiful and enlightening look at Qur`an which describes many prophetic remedies and which discusses important matters relating to the care and protection and continued health of the human heart. An example of the articleâ€™s analysis relates to alcohol; here the article refers to the Qur`anâ€™s saying that while there is good in alcohol, there is also harm, and the harm outweighs the good. â€œAlcoholism affects virtually all organs of the body … and can cause numerous problems including liver cirrhosis, pancreatic insufficiency, cancer, hypertension and heart disease. … the likelihood of obtaining various cardiovascular diseases is significantly decreased through the lifestyle encouraged by the Qur`an and Hadeeth.â€ To see the full article please click here. 12-7 February 11, 2010 by TMO 1 comment 26 viewson *The Muslim Observer, 12-7, Health & Science, International, MMN News Services, MMNS, Religion, Strangely Enough, Volume 12, web-religion Share this post Facebook Twitter Google plus Pinterest Linkedin Mail this article Print this article Tags: article, Cardiology, heart, international journal of cardiology, journal of cardiology, liver cirrhosis, M.
