Lobo Frontal : O lobo frontal se encontra na parte mais anterior do Ao agruparmos as diferentes estruturas funcionais desse lobo, podemos falar de duas grandes áreas. Uma delas seria a área correspondente às funções motoras, o córtex motor, cumprindo todas as funções do movimento. A outra área seria o córtex pré-frontal, encarregado dos processos executivos, da tomada de decisões e de diferentes aspectos relacionados com a regulação das emoções, mais precisamente ocupando todo o córtex cerebral a partir do sulco central. É considerado um lobo muito importante devido ao fato de que cumpre funções centrais no processamento da informação, especialmente as informações que têm um caráter executivo. Além disso, podemos dizer também que o lobo frontal está dividido em múltiplas regiões que o dotam de uma grande variedade de funções.

I know, I know- the infamous verse We’ve heard a million times. And yet each time I wondered- But why did Allah mention the 𝙅𝙪𝙜𝙪𝙡𝙖𝙧 𝙫𝙚𝙞𝙣 specifically. I should state here this doesnt mean God is physically inside us. He is not found in any of His creation, He is separate and distinct from His creation. Its a metaphor about how God is close to us emotionally/ whenever distressed.
And if God mentioned this vein, He wanted us to learn about it too-
♦️ There are four of these veins in total, two on each side of the neck. So giving an example of a vein that not only exists as singular but more perhaps emphasises how close He is to call upon- He is not only close but 4x closer than we think!
♦️The veins carry deoxygenated blood from the brain to the heart. A large theme of the Quran is God constantly asking rhetorical questions regarding why we think we are here, where we think we’re going, and whether we even use our brains when it comes to following a belief system/ religion/ lack of it. Allah constantly asks “do they not use their reason?” You see, the mind is actually a painful thing. What our hearts are tempted to follow and drift towards, our mind knows the truth behind and is always arguing against our hearts. It’s why we tell people “follow your heart but use your mind!” Most of the painful truths we will have to face in life will be as a result of finally letting go of our hearts and using our minds- and in these painful moments… remember that Allah is closer to you than your jugular vein :)
♦️ These veins are in a pretty exposed place- the neck. If attacked or even severed, you’ll probably be dead pretty quick (may God give your all long lives and protect you from sudden death). The use of these vulnerable, exposed veins to remind us of how close God is could only be a reminder of how in our most vulnerable and exposed moments, this verse should be held close to your heart. The jugular vein can become super prominent when a person is chronically sick such is in heart failure- again implying God being closest to us in moments of weakness, sickness & difficulty. There’s more you could interpret but hope this gave some insight💕
Perks of being an indoor lifeguard: nobody comes to swim when it’s cold and rainy, and I get to study for my lab midterm tomorrow
