Because of Three major problems we must seek a method in order to studying different topics in the Qur’ān; The First is that we do not know actually, when a question is raised in our mind, whether the Qur’ān has an answer to it or not. The Second is the lack of a method to classify and analyze the verses we have gathered anyway; The third, is that we don’t know through which principles and rules we should “read” the verses? How we should analyze and classify the gathered data? How can we get the ideas, set forth there? This article is going to take a step in providing a method for topic–based research in the Qur’ān. Some of the main stages and rules that should be followed in topic–based researching the Qur’ān are: Selecting a topic, Finding the keywords & determining the Title; Preparing Identical papers of the Research; Preparing the list of the main verses; Preparing Rokouaat’s list; Reciting the verse Repeatedly; writhing the verse ideas and points; Noting the raised Questions; Considering the Context; Noting the discovered orders & harmonies in the process of research and so on.
