The study aimed to explore how listening to the Holy Qur'an affects the visual and non-visual kinaesthetic perception of grip strength, as well as some psychological characteristics in fitness centres in Qatar. An experimental method was used to achieve the objectives of the study. The sample consists of 260 players, randomly divided equally into two groups, one experimental and the other control. Tribal tests are conducted on both groups, with the variable being visual kinaesthetic perception. The researchers used a dynamometer (handgrip) to evaluate grip strength without blocking sight at various levels (25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%), then re-measured with sight blocked at the same levels. Finally, the experimental group undertook a twelve-week program of listening to the Holy Qur'an, with three sessions per day, at 8:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m., each lasting twenty (20) minutes.

In contrast, the control group was given no such program. Instead, the physiological and psychological assessments were repeated at the end of the program. The findings demonstrate statistically significant variations in the visual and non-visual kinaesthetic perception of the required strength between the two measurements, before and after, at the level of significance α ≤0.05 (25%, 50%, and 75%) in favor of post-measurement for both experimental and control group members. Finally, the researchers recommends that players listen continuously to the Holy Qur'an before and after training and competition to improve their physiological condition and reduce recovery time and that similar studies be conducted to determine the impact of listening to the Holy Qur'an on other physiological variables and other categories of players.
