Anxiety is one of the most common problems that can disturb the performance of individuals. Various interventions have  been conducted to reduce anxiety, one of which is paying attention to spirituality, and in Iranian culture, it is to use the Quranic voice. Regarding the scattered studies in this field, the present study has the Quranic with the aim to determine the effect of Quranic voice in a systematic and Meta-Analytic Review Study. This study was conducted with a systematic review and meta-analysis method, Valuable scientific databases including SID and PubMed with Quran and Anxiety keywords, in Persian and English and without time limit were surveyed. The data were analyzed using CMA software. While surveying the databases, 16 articles were obtained, That After the initial and critical evaluation, 8 articles were excluded, Data analysis indicated that the Quranic voice in 5 studies had reduced the anxiety level and the cumulative result of studies also indicates the effect of Quranic voice on anxiety (Z=-11 /23, P<0.001). Likewise, according to the type of research community, the results indicated greater effectiveness of Quranic voice on patients (Z = -10.89, P <0.001) than on university students (Z = -4.60, P <0.001). In the studies that  the Speilberger  questionnaire was used (P = -4.04, P < 0.001), the Quranic voice's effectiveness was significant but in other questionnaires, the anxiety level was not reduced. The shorter the length of the Quranic voice is, the greater is its effect on anxiety (Q=17.71 = Q, p <0.001). Moreover with the increase of age, the difference in mean of anxiety before and after the intervention was higher (P = 0.013, Q = 6.15). The findings indicated the effect of Quranic voice on anxiety in university students and patients. It is suggested that educational and therapeutic centers use this method for reducing anxiety in these individuals.
