This paper presents an interdisciplinary studies of electronic systems: engineering, psychology and neuro-cognition. It evaluates the neurophysiological activities of human emotion using electroencephalography (EEG). This study is aimed to classify a comparison of Electroencephalogram (EEG) signal to observe human reflection towards relaxation state of mind during divine Quran recitation and listening to music. The objectives of this study is to measure the changes in alpha band and prove that the brain is less active when the subject is listening to Quran compared to music. Six healthy subjects were recruited to measure their behaviors of the mind for a total duration of three minutes. We have highlighted the observation in Topographic Map of the brain through ERP Analysis to observe whether the brain experience any changes. The results showed that the brain activity is less active and the Alpha Power is higher when the subject is listening to Quran Recitation. We conclude that listening to Quran Recitation is a useful tool for a healthy and happy mind which can help people recognize the need of Islamic practice in human life.
