Methods: This is a qualitative systematic review of studies  in which data  were collected from Qur'an, traditions, and related articles on the internet, limited to English and Persian and without time limitation by using the keywords olive, heart disease and Mediterranean diet.

Results: This systematic review demonstrated that olive in the Quran is a clear sign to scientists. Moreover, its use is recommended in the authentic traditions.

Conclusion: Based on the results, olive has been found to be effective in reducing mortality and preventing cardiovascular diseases.

Keywords: Olive oil, Quran, Systematic review.
