Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you all a verse in the Quran that explains how the forelock of the brain is the site of lying and sin, in which scientists recently discovered how the prefrontal area of the brain controls motivation to move, initiate  and plan which can be extended to the centrality of initiating a lie or a sin.

In the Quran it states, “No! If he does not desist, We will surely drag him by the forelock-A lying, sinning forelock.”(Surah Alaq 96:15-16).

Allah(SWT) tells us how the forelock, the prefrontal area of the brain, controls lying and sin.

It is understood that in the realm of anatomy and physiology is the center for motivation to cause movement and aggression. As stated in the text, “Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology” by Rod Seeley. If this area of the brain causes motivation and aggression it will then definitely trigger sin and lying because these results are simply by-products of motivation and aggression.

Now back to Islam. The Quran is truly the word of God because 1400 years ago the capability of this type of scholarly research and analysis in science was unfathomable.

Insha’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.
