Abstract Whereas various studies have been done to discover effectiveness of music on memory, few researches have applied about the Quran tune as rhythmic music to improve memory performance. The present study examined the effect of Quran tune on students’ memory. The study method was experimental with pre-test, post-test and control group. School was selected conveniently, but the subjects randomly among girls, grade 5. In order to evaluate the memory of subjects, Wechsler's digit span and alphabet succession tests (version 4) were applied. First we gave both tests to students, and then we Quran tune was played to them for 15minutes using headphones, finally the two tests were applied once more. This procedure was done in control group with the exception that no tune was played during 15minutes. The control subjects were monitored not to do any effective or intervening activity to influence memory. Data were analyzed using t-Test. The research findings indicated that Quran group was significantly different from control group in terms of digit span (p<0.001) as well as alphabet succession (p<0.001).
