Introduction: The correct and logical connection among sciences requires a correct idea of the position of these disciplines in the science system. When we see the status of sciences and quality of their arrangement, we can better understand their communication interaction. Another important point regarding the health sciences is their interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary nature. In transdisciplinaries, different sciences interact with each other to solve the practical and objective problems of the community. Context-centeredness, combination, and integration are among other features of the transdisciplinaries that are visible in health sciences. The transdisciplinary nature of health sciences makes it much more complicated to connect the Qur'anic studies. Studies in the field of health and religion indicate that the interaction of these two fields makes the interdisciplinary dimensions of the health sciences much more prominent, and the psychosocial and social discussions in the health sciences are more seriously pursued. Conclusion: Qur'anic studies are subcategorized in non-experimental human sciences, but health sciences are transdisciplinary, associated with two types of non-experimental human sciences and natural sciences. Therefore, the relationship between them is among the interdisciplinaries. Experimental human sciences are most closely related to Qur'anic studies and health sciences in the science system, and experimental human sciences can be considered as the connecting element of the sciences of the Qur'anic studies and health sciences. Therefore, social and psychological sciences are the best sciences for establishing common language and interaction between these two domains. With this common language, one can even imagine the interaction of the Qur'anic studies with the biological field of health sciences.
