Fear is normal during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak because it new, and we don't know much about it yet. Consequently, the study aimed to investigate the effect of the holy Quran voice on the quality of life among the elderly during Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak. To achieve this, we used the quasiexperimental approach on a sample consisting of (64), divided into two groups (N= 32) as a control group and (N= 32) as the experimental group. Because of the home quarantine and to reduce face-to-face interaction, we used a questionnaire to measure the quality of life using the Google form. The experimental group applied the experiment by listening to the Quran for (10) minutes and 3 times a day for 30 days, after completing the experiment the quality of life was measured for the two groups. The results of the study have shown that the level of quality of life came with a lower degree in the pre-measurement of the two groups, as well as the mental health domains that were the most affected in a positive way through listening to the Quran, additionally, there were statistically significant differences between the post-measurement of the two groups and favor of the experimental group. The researchers recommend that the regularity strategy should be used to hearing the Quran because of its positive effects on the various body systems.
