This paper is concerned with the exponential stability of traveling fronts in monostable reaction-advection-diffusion equations with nonlocal delay. The existence and comparison theorem of solutions of the corresponding Cauchy problem in a weighted Sobolev space are first established for the systems on $\mathbb{R}$ by appealing to the theory of semigroup and abstract functional differential equations. The exponential stability of traveling fronts is then proved by the comparison principle and the (technical) weighted energy method. Comparing with the previous results, our results recovers and/or improves a number of existing ones. Finally, we apply our results to some biological and epidemic models and obtain some new results.
