He briefly used this method of exegesis (Sobhani, 1981: Vol.1, p.2). Research on the validity of this view can be performed in three parts of gathering chapters, sub-chapters, examining the viewpoints of exegetes and analysis and conclusion according to the definition of thematic exegesis. This study aimed to study the thematic approach of Majlesi to the Quran which is the introduction and entrance basis to thematic exegesis. For this purpose, the number of chapters were randomly and proportionally selected from each subject package of Bihar al-Anwar and then examined.
