This research will develop a new understanding for scholars and the Muslim community regarding nonverbal communication from the perspective of the Qur'an. The claim to be a holy book causes the Qur'an to be seen as the word of God, which should talk about various things, including nonverbal aspects of the human face and things related to them (postures and gestures that accompany facial muscle dynamics). On that basis, this research was conducted to answer questions related to kinesic or non-verbal communication from the perspective of the Qur'an. Using the primary data source of Al-Qur'an texts and al-Farmawy's thematic interpretation (mauḍū'i) research method, the results of this study show that, different from conventional secularistic nonverbal or kinesic communication paradigms, the Al-Qur'an paradigm is based on religious ideas that are sacred, futuristic, and emphasize the inseparable relationship between social and transcendental aspects. The verses of the Al-Qur'an not only affirm the positivism and functional aspects of conventional communication science but even express ideas that conventional communication science does not have namely, about the nonverbal of the human face before death and in the second life after death.
