|so that their hearts may thus learn wisdom and their ears may thus learn to hear ….|
Scientists discovered that the human heart has more than 40,000 neurons that play a significant role in thinking, understanding, behaving and other metal processes. This fact was pointed out in the Holy Quran, as Allah says: “Have they not travelled in the land, so that their hearts may thus learn wisdom and their ears may thus learn to hear? For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind” [Al-Hajj: 46].
In this verse we see significant sign to role of heart in learning and comprehension, and this is what exactly the scientists say.
