One of the most significant consequences of the spread of the coronavirus is the onset of anxiety. The amalgamation of anxiety induced by pregnancy and the risk of contracting COVID-19 can lead to inevitable complications for both the mother and the fetus. Additionally, some research has indicated that listening to the Qur'an can alleviate anxiety stemming from various illnesses. Therefore, this study was designed with the aim of investigating the effect of reciting the Quran on COVID-19 anxiety in women with gestational diabetes.

Materials and Methods

In this clinical trial, 64 pregnant women with gestational diabetes, referred to the health centers of Khomein city, were selected using the available sampling method and divided into two groups: intervention and control. In the intervention group, participants listened to the recitation of Surah Rahman three times a week for four consecutive weeks. No intervention was conducted in the control group. Data collection was conducted using a questionnaire and the Corona Virus Anxiety Scale (CDAS). Subsequently, the data were analyzed using SPSS version 21 software.


The findings revealed that the average change in COVID-19 anxiety in the intervention group decreased from 31.16 ± 10.5 to 11.22 ± 8.03. In the control group, the average COVID-19 anxiety decreased from 29.69 ± 5.85 to 13.63 ± 7.53, and this decrease was statistically significant. Therefore, the average reduction in the COVID-19 anxiety score in the intervention group was higher than that in the control group.


This study demonstrated that reciting the Quran reduced the level of COVID-19 anxiety in the intervention group.
