Collection: White Hair

Shock is one of the factors that could turn hair color to white. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered:

Surah: Al-Muzzammil

Verse: 17

"So how will you, if you persist in unbelief, save yourself from a Day which will turn the children white-haired?"

 فَكَيْفَ تَتَّقُونَ إِنْ كَفَرْتُمْ يَوْمًا يَجْعَلُ الْوِلْدَانَ شِيبًا

 Resurrection Day can cause the hair of children to turn white. Children means the cause is not old age. Today we know that shock can turn the hair white even for children.
