salam all,
odd question but doctors have failed to answer this question. If they did, it's not convincing. So why do we have earlobes? It doesn't have a part in collecting sound.
So I put the question to the crowd... why do we have them?

There are people with experience and people with opinions. Listen to one, smile at the other.

Your Q is a bit like this one ''Whats the point of different coloured eyes/ height/ weight?'' . Well I would say to differentiate humans, so that they don't all look the same, otherwise the world would be boring... As for the ears, I'm guessing its so that we wear earrings. Btw attached earlobes are a recessive trait, think about people who have attached earlobes and they wear earrings, it looks ugly.
If it wasn't haram you could do a research, take off earlobes of some people and see how they carry out certain tasks, compare this to people with earlobes...


The earlobe is composed of tough areolar and adipose (fatty) connective tissues, lacking the firmness and elasticity of the rest of the pinna. Since the earlobe does not contain cartilage it has a large blood supply and may help to warm the ears and maintain balance. However earlobes are not generally considered to have any major biological function

Done is better than perfect.

I think for my point of view while the external ear made from cartilage to receive the sound wives so must be a part in the external ear to amortize the shakes caused by the waves ( like the car ) ^_^

I think I have a mechanical imagination :D

Noureddine, I would say your answer is approximately 80% convincing. I think the earlobe absorbs some of the sound shocks which the drums might not be able to handle. Also I think it acts as a warming mechanism for the ear.

Well, the earlobes hasn't a role in the hearing function of the external ear.

and I think that you folks hear about the Reflexology?

it's a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands and in some other body areas like the earlobes.

in this picture you will see the reflexive points in the ear and focus on the earlobe > picture

So! you can do a self massage just by stimulating those areas and you will see the results :D

and the earlobes has a beauty role as well.

and there's a lot of nerves there :P

Salaaam.

good. i've been reading about Chirotherapy recently. I was very impressed with what I've learnt. You see my job is stressful so I need all sorts of exercises which exert pressure. Now I do gym at 6am, and then swimming.. It has improved my life so much and I feel a lot more healthier alhamdulilah and happier :D
