Abstract

Through all times, scholars interpreted the Quranic verses of water by emphasising on the essential role of water upon the physical formation of plants. This study aimed to extend this interpretation from a behavioural science background. Mix methods were used, systematic literature review and integrative analysis. With the blue-space theory, It concluded that water does not have a role in building the physical-form only. But, also the spiritual-creation. God mentioned in the Quran that water brings everything alive; it seemed that it was not limited to the physical form of a human, as mentioned by scholars. But also the spiritual form. 

Keywords: Blue-space; Water; Quran; Quality Of Life.
