Vander Hoven – the Power of Allah

Vander Hoven, a psychologist from Netherlands, announced his new discovery about the effect of reading the Quran and repeating the word ALLAH both on patients and on normal persons. The Dutch professor confirms his discovery with studies and research applied on many patients over a period of three years.

Some of his patients were non-Muslims, others do not speak Arabic and were trained to pronounce the word “ALLAH” clearly; the result was great, particularly on those who suffer from dejection and tension.

Al Watan, a Saudi daily reported that the psychologist was quoted to say that Muslims who can read Arabic and who read the Quran regularly can protect themselves from psychological diseases. The psychologist explained how each letter in the word “ALLAH” affects healing of psychological diseases. He pointed out in his research that pronouncing the first letter in the word “ALLAH” which is the letter (A), released from the respiratory system, controls breathing. He added that pronouncing the velar consonant (L) in the Arabic way, with the tongue touching slightly the upper part of the jaw producing a short pause and then repeating the same pause constantly, relaxes the aspiration. Also, pronouncing the last letter which is the letter (H) makes a contact between the lungs and the heart and in turn this contact controls the heart beat.

What is exciting in the study is that this psychologist is a non-Muslim, but interested in Islamic sciences and searching for the secrets of the Holy Quran. Allah, The Great and Glorious, says, We will show them Our signs in the universe and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (Quran) is the truth. (Holy Quran 42:53)

  1. This discovery is miraculous and simple,its almost too good to be true


  3. not only ALLAH, BUT ALL OTHER 98 NAMES HAVE POWER WHICH NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND. Quran is itself a big miricle.

  4. I really appreciate the work done by Vander. Although he is non muslim but he has the courage to broadcast truth. Vander, I salute you.

  5. Allah O Akbar
    The muslims should understand and believe that all their problems must be solved if we read and understand what QURAN says to us.

  6. On behalf all Muslims, appreciate Mr. Vander for his excellent discovery very useful for one and all human being. Recognize his work for long time

  7. Brothers is it authentic have this psychologist publish any paper, unfortunately I tried to find but could not. I only find this article on Muslims website.
    I and all Muslims believe I may happened Allah is almighty than this tiny miracle, but how you will prove this to a non Muslims can you give any authentic material to them to verify?

    • What is there to prove?
      Let us try to experience what this psychologist is saying.
      Let us come together and in a group chant or repeat the word “Allah” many times; say 100.
      If nothing happens, let us repeat the procedure again, and again. (Rome was not built in one day)
      The psychologist is suggesting to address the heart rather than the mind. He is a non-Muslim. He found success with using the greatest name of the creator. We don’t know where he got the idea from, but the quran does say: “.. in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (Quran. Chapter 13,The Thunder, verse 28)

  8. what mr.Vander discovered through his researches is my very own experiance.
    its only the first time(IN MY LIFE) that I see, because of a non muslim ALLAH SUBHANA O TALLAH made our eemans even more stronger…BEYond any doubts all the praises ar for ALLAH and ALLAH alone.
    LET’S join our hands together and find out what else has ALLAH hidden in his DIVINE words of HOLY QURAN.LET’S not make the NOBLE WORDS OF ALLAH be kept on the shelves to be read in ramzan….let’s find out what in QURAN SHARIF brought a miriculous turn over in the enemies of islam.

  9. In response to “sadaf” there are no enemies of islam there people who didnt understand islam who took islam from people who dont know how to preach islam ,how to show islam in it’s real appearance and that is islam is not a religion bound with a nation or a race islam is THE way god meant life for the hole universe to be islam is a way of life islam is the path of truth islam is the discovery and the response for the most asqued questions who are we where do we come from and where are we going , what is the purpose of our lifes all these questions and much more are all answwered in the CORAAN brought through his messengers Mohamed salla allahou aleihi wa sallama .

  10. I am muslim and a believer but who is vander hoven? just curious.

    • Dont ask such questions, even Vander Hoven dont know who he is and where he is. Just look on this page, how fictitious it is, it is not Vander Hoven’s web site, no reference to it, no link etc etc. I cant say any more.

  11. I agree with Abbas… I don’t find any sources but from islamic sources. this for all we know could have been fabricated but subhana’Allah I know that such thing is true but where is the real research. Van der hoven is a last name not a name!!! 😦

  12. I find it hilarious that all the comments are positive! Did someone arrest/delete all the voices of the critics who say “this sounds just a little dodgy and more than a little laughable”?!
    p.s And when you all attack my view – as I’m sure you all will – do not fear, I will not be upset, I will only be more encouraged to laugh harder so pleas, be my guest.

  14. Assalam O Alaikum Brothers and sisters,

    i would like to bring your kind attention towards this topic which is displayed on your website and some other at least 700 websites. It mentions about a Dutch Psychologist Van Der Hoven doing a research on name of Allah.

    Brothers we are all aware of Allah, the psychological effects this name have by our own personal practical experience. But why do we want to show the world this thing in a fake maner. I have done an extensive research and found that there is no professor by that name, at least not in psychological studies. the name of the research university is not mentioned. from which it seems to be that some one have simply created a story.

    To prove Quran and words of Allah, we do not need fake stories. Quran and Allah are the truth and truth proves itself. It never needs fake supports.

    the after effects of this fake story is that the non muslims around the world are raising fingers on this issue and saying that see Islam and muslims are now creating fake stories to prove their rightness.

    Brother can we please stop this happening and remove this from our all the sites. this is my small effort. Please do remember me in your prayers. May Allah guide us all towards the right path. JazakAllah.

    Abdul Salam Jafar

    Assalam O Alaikum Warahmatullahe wabarakatuhu

  16. I really wanted to make a comment about this article like I arleady done it in french websites but machallah Abdul Salam Jafar
    you stole my job.

    I have study psychology and I researched references of this article but it seems it can’t be found.

    The production and reproduction of this kind of article put a discredit to muslims that’s why we need to be careful with it.


  17. wow.. smiles.
    MayPeaceBeUponYou (MPBUY),

    And everyone even Non-Muslims who research on this article just as I do. (fan.focus @ gmail . com)

    I would like to say I was curious on the authencity of the article but as you can see as our brothers/sisters mentioned its not authentic.

    I am sorry to hear, but it does not shake my faith.

    Sure this article will turn heads but its not necessary for such article to “lie” its way to the hearts of the people.

    God has every way to lead everyone to the straight path and God’s willing, everyone will receive the light.

    May God bless all of you reading this.

    And as for the Guest on Sept 13:
    I am thankful that the people here commenting are very wise and mature to ignoring you. 🙂
    I’m sorry if I offend you.
    But no comments on whatever you said is necessary.
    May God bless you as well.

    Sincere regards,
    Muhammad Afandi

  18. salam all. i stumbled on this articel after doing a search on the said psychologist after i received an email with more or less the same content.

    well, this whole thing is just another example why muslims are dumb and seemingly doomed to be dumb for the next forseeable few cenutries.

    for goodness sakes, see the message of the quran and get on with life without pedaling lies about God and trickining yourselves and others to confuse faith with this kind of rubbish.


    I’m a believer, God made me intelligent, I thank him for that.

  19. Allah o Akber (Allah is Great)

  20. SubhanAllah
    Allah o Akber (Allah is Great)

  21. This is for those who said they have done “EXTENSIVE RESEARCH” on VAn Der Hoeven and found that there is no such person. In fact, There is one Van Der Hoeven who specializes in Psychology in Netherlands. Please check this link and judge for yourself who is stupid.

    • Well, this website is of Dr Van Den Hoven and does not show any research of the above kind

  22. Bismillah, Assalamualikum…

    this sounded to me like one of those magical mails….:

    Im not sayin this aint true : Allahua’lam… but………………. (read that article again, and then read below)

    A few questions to ask ourselves:
    – Where was ‘his’ ‘discovery’ ‘announced’ ?

    – Where was the ‘research’ done? Which University / Hospital?

    – What does a psychologist have to do with lungs and heart [Clearly this hoaxer (if) doesn’t know what he wrote]

    – The Muslims themselves are doing so much nonsense and terrorism (antonym of ‘peace’) in the name of Allah. Some may say that these Muslims are not sincerely doing it for the sake of Allah. Aight, then how will pronouncing ‘Allah’ by non Muslims have any effect?
    When we say non Muslims, we have to make clear that they may be in the deepest of shirk (associating partners with Allah), may be into all sorts of haraam activities etc….

    – I checked through and couldn’t find such a psychologist on the net (wikipedia also)– just that this particular article has been circulated into many of the sites & forums

    – In Netherlands, the name Van Der Hoven is very common, its like the name ‘Muhammed’ – so imagine a mail which says: ‘Muhammed, a psychologist from India…….’ The 1st statement is fishy enough….

    No doubt Islam is the truth and we have genuine ways to prove it, but we don’t need to desperately prove it… esp since when we don’t have a daleel (proof) of it.

  23. Are you sure this article is from a Muslim bcos a Muslim should know you cant lie to prove ALLAH. If you do, you will be punished.

  24. Rubbish!

    Alhumdulillah, I am a Muslim. I am disappointed to see other Muslims picking up and transmitting such obviously fake and nonsensical stories.

    If this is the kind of story (for that is what this is, a story) that is needed to strengthen faith then the foundations of faith are quite weak I’m afraid.

    Islam encourages critical thinking and analysis, we’ve been given minds for a reason by Allah.


  25. No comment about the details about the so-called “Vander Hoven, a psychologist from Netherlands”. This could be a hoax.

  26. Salam Bro/Sis …
    I received an email today on this research.. when you read at the bottom “If you love ALLAH and you are not ashamed of all the great things that he has done for you,then send this to everyone you know”, you know that someone is making money at the end of the chain ..So PLEASE STOP FORWARDING these islamic emails.Those people that create such emails know that one muslim will pass it without thinking twice about it and so creat a chain of emails.
    May Allah Taalla giude us to the right path

    Imran Moghul

  27. Can you remember few month/year ago dutch published few picture then whole muslim world was boycott dutch product.
    Now to make good relation and a survey VAN DER HOVEN made a tricks.To gear up thier bussines with a muslim survey.
    But who ever believe or not we do believe All allah with 100 names has powerfull significance that human being can hardly invent.
    But don’t forget the past who tried to destroy ISLAM.
    Just keep that in your mind.
    Talukder Islam

  28. Allah Knows the best.

  29. In many situations in recent history Muslims have been the worst enemies of Islam. We are too emotional and, due to the current confusing state of the Muslim nation we usually grasp any piece of information which appears to support or verify Islam, promote and push that piece of information as if Allah (s.w.t.) needs our help to prove his existence and his authenticity. Allah (s.w.t.) Said in the Qur’an “Oh you believers, if a fasik (corrupt non-believer) brings you any news, you should verify it” I am not a psychologist myself but apparently some other brothers who are psychologist has indicated that the name of Vander Hoven is not known as a psychologist researchers.

    If somebody knows how to reach Al-Watan (the Saudi newspaper) that apparently published this article to start with. Please do so and request them to present any evidence they have to prove that the research is authentic and that the researcher really exists. If that newspaper can not provide evidence, we as Muslims should sew them for misrepresentation.

    Something does not make sense. If a person is not Muslim and he is good reputable researcher that really believe in his work and he discovered and proved through clinical tests that the Qur’an has a healing power, Would that person waste any moment before becoming Muslim? The fact that such researcher did not announce his Islam and did not come very loud and clear declaring his discovery indicates that either he did not exist or if he exited and actually spoke of his research, he did not really believe it himself.

    We do not need debate, discussion or war of words to promote or defend Islam. I strongly believe that the best way to promote Islam is simply by living as Muslims ourselves, we can not promote Islam while some of us are thieves, some are killers, some are drug dealers, most of us are liars and hypocrite. These are the facts, yes they hurt but they are true. May Allah guide all people, Muslims and non Muslims alike.

  30. For a considerable length
    of time now, over ten years actually, because blind acceptance of stories from ”Very authentic sources” once caused me personally, a great deal of embarrassment in front of my non Muslim friends (I am a member of London’s Inter Faith Forum and, more particularly in that, the Christian Muslim Forum) I have, for long, made it a point
    never to accept any such thing without doing appropriate research and verification first ….. So I started making inquires; just as I had feared, I couldn’t find one single person anywhere in Europe who could corroborate the existence of this Mr Van Der Hoven in the relevant field and context.

    To me, it does not matter what A “Psychology Professor” says or does not say, no matter whether he is from Holland, United States or wherever; shukr al-hamdolILLAH, I am a Momin and Muslim and so have an unshakeable belief in the ONE and Only, ALLAH Subhana Wata’aala, regardless of whether my lungs ‘touch’ my heart or they stay apart within the Thoracic Cavity and diaphragm without touching; it is my ‘Eimann’ which is the important thing ….. And Eimann also in the religion which Mohammed Radoolillah, peace be upon him, brought, followed and preached to the world i.e. to be a Muslim and only a Muslim; not Sunni, nor Shia or any sub sect. I am totally ‘Paak’ from firqabundi of any type or kind which ALLAH Tabaaraka Wata’aala has forbidden through Qur’aan.
    I try and follow HIS instructions practically and that is
    enough for me regardless of what is happening between my lungs and the heart (Or spleen and the liver !)

    So, I am how very interested in finding out:

    1. Who is this “Professor” Van Der Hoven, really ?
    2. Where does he practice (or teach) Psychology ?
    3. When did he make this discovery and come out with the heart and lungs theory ?
    And as somebody has quite rightly expressed puzzlement …..
    4. What does a psychologist (even from Holland !) know or, has got to do with the functions of Heart and Lung ??

    I have been student of Anatomy myself and know that in
    any kind of speech, lungs have to exhale air which, in turn, deflate the lungs; with words ending in “H” sounds, lungs have to exhale a lot more; the lungs do NOT expand, they contract, so how do they “touch” the heart ? (And in any event, what does it matter that they do, or don’t ?)

    5. Which “University” in the Netherlands did this Psychologist make the “Discovery” in ?

    As it happens, Netherland is not a small little town or district but a fair sized Country; there are 23 State owned and 6 Private Universities in Netherlands, the oldest called ‘Leiden University’ also has a Medical School, was founded in 1575CE and has a staff of nearly 4,000 and there are 18.000 students, so, which University are we talking about ?

    Telling a lie or making false statements is referred to as the Mother of Sins in Islam and if somebody thinks that making up stories is “Okay” as long as it is being done in ‘service’ of ALLAH Subhana Wata’aala, he and those who believe the falsehood, are in for a Big Surprise !

    If somebody can answer the above querries, I shall be eternally grateful to him/her …… but no tall tales, please.

  37. Being a Muslim, I would love the new, however, the writer has not mentioned where this research was conducted, in which university or institute. What are the credentials? What was the tenure of this research? Has this report been published in any of the specific journals or got place in just vernacular press of OIC nations. I never came across any research or researcher Van Der Hoven? Are we again been fooled?

  38. […] […]
