The potential of music in improving various cognitive functions leads to the extensive use of music in the treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders. However, there are limited studies on religious music such as Quran recitation. Most of the research done discussed the effects of listening to the Holy Quran on the patients' physiological response using Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG). There is no known analysis of the sound frequencies of the selected verses from the Quran. Different Quranic verses might be appropriate for certain diseases. As Surah Al-Fil is believed by the Muslims to cure cancer, this study aims to identify the dominant brainwave of individuals when listening to Surah Al-Fil and to explore the correlation between the sound frequency of Surah Al-fil and human brainwaves. The brainwaves of a cancer patient and a healthy participant were compared in this study. A MUSE headband was used to record the participants' brainwaves. The participants were asked to listen to the first audio (Surah Al-fil by Misyari Rasyid Alfasy) three times. Upon the completion of each task, the participants were allowed to rest. Then, the second audio (Surah Al-Fil by Saad Al-Ghamdi) was played three times. An in-depth interview is then used to gain information from the participants of his or her experience when listening to Surah Al-Fil. The results show that the alpha wave is the most dominant in the cancer patient. Whereas in healthy participant, delta wave is the most dominant. The findings show that Surah Al-Fil gives a calming effect to the cancer participant by increasing alpha waves. While Abdurrochman, Wulandari and Fatimah (2007) suggest that the delta wave in the healthy participant may be used to treat sleep disorders.
