The contemporary Muslims communities witnessed many inventions and innovations as a result of global progress and civilisation, some of the innovations are full of evils that attract the hearts. Muslims instead of reading and listening the Qur’anic recitation in the early hours of the day,  they spends huge time on social medias through internet devices available to them or listening radio news, From these it can be said every Muslim should care about his/her heart, purify it and activate Iman in it. To love Allah, to fear Him, to rely on Him, to have hope in Him to help and seek refuge from Him and make sure that there is no any disease or anything bad within the circuit of his/her heart. Greediness, envy, arrogance and ignorance are among the common evils that infected the heart. This paper cited few Qur’anic verses that are attributed to hearth softening and maintained that the oratory messages of Glorious Qur’an can be a mechanism to scan the heart affected by evils and activate it, to make it function alive. A live heart is the one that has Iman and Allah’s fears, while a death heart is the one that has full of evils which can make it unsound or weak. Therefore, the paper recommends individuals and Muslims associations to take task of re-awakening Muslims on the dangers and challenges of neglecting the recitation or listening of Glorious the Qur’an.
