However, cardiac function depends on several factors, but one of the cases that has been proven to be related to people's mental states is HRV. HRV is a well-known non-invasive tool for assessing cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system. On the other hand, the sound and text of the Quran is a stimulant of thought and emotion. Therefore, the analysis of heart rate changes can be used as a monitoring tool for modifying the autonomic nervous system. Indeed, in this research, indicators of the HRV are identified that change when they listen to or read the Quran. To do this research, 31 healthy subjects including male and female with no history of cardiovascular disease in the age range of 25 to 40 years old were used as volunteers. Then, in four stages: rest and listening to the Quran, reading the Quran and combining the two ECG signals from each candidate were obtained and the characteristics of the HRV signal were obtained. The results showed that some of the features of the HRV signal in the different stages of the experiment were significantly changed relative to the resting state with P-Value. Changing these features showed that sympathetic nervous system function increased. After this test, the SAM emotion test was taken out by volunteers, which made it more pleasant for volunteers. Therefore, it can be concluded that the effect of the experiment on the volunteers has been a positive emotion due to the increased function of the sympathetic system and the result of the test of emotion.
