In this regard, Holy Quran, the book of healing and mercy, has dragged human attention toward certain fruits such as grape, olive, pomegranate, date, and fig. Certainly, there are physical and mental benefits to humans, in this notice of Knowing God. The current study aimed to evaluate therapeutic properties of Quranic fruits and their effects on health promotion. Evidence Acquisitions: The current study was a review research which was conducted according to Islamic references such as Holy Quran and Islamic interpretations, medical narratives, traditional and modern medicine books, published articles, and advanced internet search. Results : In Holy Quran, God has mentioned grape 11 times , olive 6times , pomegranate 3 times , date once (palm tree 20 times), and fig once. Of course, in one case olive has been indirectly mentioned. Note that, these fruits have been mentioned together, in some verses; such as Surah At-tin verse 1: “by the fig and the olive!”.
