Breast cancer becomes the most common type of cancer among women worldwide. Nowadays people seek noninvasive treatment for their illness. One of the methods in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is Ruqyah Syar’iyyah by reciting Quranic verses in the treatment. As the Holy Quran is the eternal miracle that challenged the world and affects all creatures in general, this study is aimed to disclose the effects of reciting Ruqyah Shar’iyyah as a treatment by evaluating the proliferation of breast cancer cell lines.  The spiritual treatment was shown to improve the quality of life that gives better impacts on emotion and physical as well as increase immunity.  This study applied the experimental method where MCF-7 cells were divided into two groups, the control, and the treatment group. During the treatment sessions, a compilation of several Qur’anic verses was recited by using the speakers. The study demonstrated that the cell proliferation percentage of the treatment group for both treatment periods (12 and 24 hours) decreased compared to the control group.  This empirical study proved the miraculous effects of the Holy Quran on breast cancer cell lines. The study suggests the longer treatment times and repeated treatments would provide significant results for higher-grade cancer cells such as MCF-7 used in this study.
