Q & A
Stress and anxiety are one of the most widespread problems presently; stress treatment has been featured in many researches. The purpose of this study is to examine the various aspects and perspectives of human emotions while listening to Quran Recitation.
This work focus on understanding and analyzing brain and heart activities for two groups: those who understand arabic language and those who do not understand arabic language. Also, this study will attempt to identify whether the meaning of Quran or the intonation that does matter while listening to Quran Recitation
. Therefore, quantitative study has been conducted to identify the specific set of verses and reciter that will be used in our experiment.
An online distributed questionnaire was sent to the academic staffs of all the Islamic faculties in the Malaysian public universities.
Two set of verses were identified: verses that induce positive emotions (happy, calm) which are Yasin and Al-Inshirah and verses that induce negative emotions (fear, sad) which are Taha and Al-Hashr
. EEG and ECG data will be collected from
of which are those who understand arabic language very well and the rest are those who do not understand arabic language
. In the experiment, visual and auditory stimuli (Passive stressor) will be used to induce positive and negative emotions. The International Affective Picture System (IAPS) will be used in this experiment for emotion elicitation. The analysis of these data will be carried out afterwards to compare participants’ emotion.
