The current study evaluated the quantitative performance of Muslim researchers to publish existing articles regarding Quran in relation with medical sciences in Scopus Databases and rate of citations. Objectives: To provide the ideas of thinking and studying the main ways of development and penetration of Quran teachings beyond the boundaries of Islamic countries. Materials and Methods: The present study is an applied – descriptive research which has been performed by citation analysis method. Population of the current study includes all the articles regarding the relation of Holy Quran and medical sciences (77 records) which have been indexed in Scopus Databases. Descriptive statistics and Excel software were used to set the data. Results: the present study showed that the total citations to the 77 articles, as the population of the study, were 180, and an average of citation rate to each article was 2.33. In terms of time, citations to the investigated articles mostly referred to 2009 with 32 cases, 2008 with 27 cases, and 2010 with 25 cases, respectively. Also, Journal of Semitic Studies published the highest number of articles in this field, 13 articles, followed by the journal of Medicine and Law with 3 articles. Conclusions: The number of articles about the relation of Quran teachings in medical sciences in Scopus Databases was very low. It shows that either the Muslim researchers have not taken enough advantage from Quran in their investigations or they have not published their findings in the international domain. To increase the quality and quantity of scientific productions in this field, to index the findings in reliable websites, and also to promote Quran teachings in medical sciences properly, in addition to improving English writing skills, researchers try to improve the quality and quantity of the articles and index them in reliable international websites.
