Mass media is a channel to deliver information to the public in any situation and condition. In its application, mass media will be one of factors driving the change in society, especially in the current Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The Qur’an explains clearly the communication with the honesty concept of “QaulanSyadida,” meaning that in this COVID situation, various mass media should provide clear and accurate information about COVID-19 and not cause social upheaval in people’s lives. In this study, researchers will try to examine more deeply the role of mass media in social change from the Qur’an’s perfection during COVID-19 which has an impact on society. The purpose of study is to determine the extent to which the mass media play a role in social change in terms of the Qur’an. The research approach used is descriptive qualitative with data collection techniques using the interview method. The results of study illustrate that the mass media plays an important role in social change, viewed from the perspective of the Qur’an, especially in the COVID-19 era. In the process of social life, the media becomes a force providing change to the community very rapidly.
