Human Senses in Quran

The Quran also mention the human senses, specifically sight, hearing, and touch. For example, in Surah Al-Baqarah, verse 164, it says: “From among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostrate to Allah, who created them, if it is indeed Him that you worship.”

In Surah Al-An’am, verse 46, it says: “And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may find tranquility in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.”

In Surah Al-Nahl, verse 78, it says: “And among His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.”

These verses and others show that the Quran emphasizes the importance of the senses as signs of God’s power and presence in the world. It also acknowledges the diversity of human experiences and the ways in which we perceive the world around us. However, the Quran does not go into detail about the specific functions or mechanisms of the senses or how they work.
