Low birth weight babies (LBW) are newborns whose weight at birth is less than 2,500 grams. LBW does not only occur to premature babies, but also to full term infants who experience growth barriers during pregnancy. The impact of LBW itself is very serious for the quality of future generations. Long-term problems that might occur as a result of LBW include growth disorder, vision disorder (retinopathy), hearing disorder, chronic lung disease, increased morbidity, frequent congenital abnormalities, and frequent hospital admission. The purpose of this study was to analyze the differences in the effects of murotal (Al-Qur’an recital) stimulation on waking states and body weight in premature and LBW infants at PKU Muhammadiyah Hospital in Yogyakarta. The type of the research was quantitative with Pre-Test and Test Control Group Design. To enhance the research, the results of the impact / outcome of the care of premature and LBW infants in PKU Muhammadiyah Hospital Yogyakarta were described. The findings of this study revealed that murotal stimulation is able to improve the waking states of babies, reduce anxiety / stress in infants, increase body weight faster, reduce baby’s hospital stay period, and reduce the expenses incurred by the family to care for the baby.
