The forelocks and the feet .. A new vision

Modern researchers had proved a scientific relationship between the forelock and committing crimes, let us read …

Modern scientists provide a lot of evidence that the brains of people with antisocial personality are different from normal brains. The prefrontal cortex is known to inhibit the limbic system, which is an area of the brain that gives rise to aggressive behavior and there have been many studies done that examine murderer's brains.

In one such study, PET scans were used to determine cell activity in 41 murderers and results showed a lower level of communication between the two hemispheres of the brain. The activity in the corpus callosum, which is the bridge that links the two sides of the brain, was 18% less active than normal. This is significant because the left side is usually considered the rational side, and the right side is the irrational side so if the bridge that links the two sides isn't very active, then the rational and irrational sides would not be communicating very well.


Positron emission tomography (PET) scan is a unique type of imaging test that helps doctors see how the organs and tissues inside body are actually functioning.

In most people, the left side of the brain has more control, but in murderer's brains neither side rules. The study also showed some evidence that murderer's emotions might be stronger than normal. The PET scans showed increased activity in the thalamus, amygdala, and limbic system by 6% compared to controls. According to those scientists, all of these areas control basic emotions, such as aggression, sexual desire, and anger, and therefore increased activity in these regions would suggest stronger emotions.

Forelock size is not constant

A study was conducted by Adrian Raine, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at the University of Southern California to show that not all criminal brains are created equal.


During the past years, evidence has been building that the prefrontal cortex—a region involved in judgment, planning, and decision making—is often not the same in criminals and potential criminals as in the general population.

Raine and coworkers reported that the prefrontal cortex of violent, antisocial men was smaller than that of controls (Psychiatric News, March 3, 2000). In 2002, two University of Connecticut scientists reported that brain-wave responses to a memory task were less potent in the prefrontal cortex of teens with conduct disorder than in the prefrontal cortex of teens without the disorder (Psychiatric News, April 5, 2002).But how might the prefrontal cortex of successful criminals (those who avoid capture) compare with that of unsuccessful criminals (those who get caught)?

Raine and his team used five temporary employment agencies to recruit volunteers for their study. They gave the volunteers various tests including the Psychopathy Checklist–Revised, Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM-IV Mental Disorders (SCID I), and SCID Axis II Personality Disorders (SCID II) to determine whether they had psychopathic characteristics and, if so, to what degree. The researchers also determined whether subjects had committed any crimes by examining state court records and by asking subjects directly whether they had committed any offenses.

The researchers used the test results and crime information to compose a study sample of 52 subjects—13 with high psychopathy scores who had escaped detection for their crimes, 16 with high psychopathy scores who had been detected and convicted for their criminal acts, and 23 control subjects.

The scientists then used structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine the volume of prefrontal gray matter in each of the subjects. They found that the volume of prefrontal gray matter in the unsuccessful psychopaths was 22 percent smaller than in the control subjects—a highly significant difference. The volume of prefrontal gray matter was a little smaller in the successful psychopaths than in the control subjects, but the difference was not significant.These results remained the same even when possibly confounding factors such as age, socioeconomic status, substance abuse, or a history of head injury were taken into consideration.

Criminals and the facial characteristics

Many years ago and the psychiatrists had distinguished between criminals and ordinary people from their faces; one of them is the Italian psychiatrist Cesare Lombroso who claimed that most criminals have odd facial characteristics.

Lombroso published his book “The Criminal Man.” In it he wrote, “…one has to conclude that while offenders may not look fierce, there is nearly always something strange about their appearance. It can even be said that each type of crime is committed by men with particular physiognomic characteristics.”

Islam, crime and the forelock

After all of the above it became clear that a direct link between the forelock and crimes does exist and also the facial features of criminals are the same.

Glory to Allah Almighty who concluded all of these researches in a few  words as He Almighty says: (The Mujrimun (polytheists, criminals, sinners, etc.) will be known by their marks, and they will be seized by their forelocks and their feet){Sûrat Ar-Rahmân -The Most Gracious -verse41}

The holly verse talks about future event that is day of resurrection but He Almighty made it clear in front of us in this life as a proof that He Almighty is sincere in what He tells us and also clear evidence that day of resurrection will happenaccording to the will of Allah Almighty.

The question is, who told prophet Mohamed peace be upon him fourteen centuries ago about the relation between the forelock and crimes, also who told him that criminals have a facial features that distinguish them from others?

Indeed the doer is Allah Almighty who says: (Say (O Muhammad to mankind): "How do you worship besides Allah something which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is Allah who is the All-Hearer, All-Knower.")

{Sûrat Al-Mâ’idah-The Table spread with Food -verse76}
