Abstract

In the Holy Qur’an, the religious text of Islam, the name of leeks, cucumbers, garlic, lentils and onions are mentioned together in the verse 61 of Sūrah Al-Baqarah (The Cow). This descriptive study was designed to determine the probable cause of mentioning these five plants in the Holy Qur’an. Results present interesting similarities between the microscopic view of these plants and the five sensory receptors in the peripheral nervous system. These findings are in line with the ideas of the “Doctrine of Signatures” theory. The doctrine of signatures theory believes that plants that resemble body parts have beneficial effects on those parts. Thus, the main purpose of this study was to propose another look to Quranic scientific research in order to open new windows for more research in the field of interdisciplinary topics. Undoubtedly, the continuation of these studies and scientific attention to the meaningful verses of the Holy Qur’an can be the first steps of a new path in line with the discovery of miracles and scientific statements of the Holy Qur’an.
