Proving the resurrection of the body by logic is one of the most challenging issues of our time as many people deny the resurrection nowadays. Badīʿ al-Zamān Saʿīd al-Nūrsī has used thematic exegesis to prove the resurrection of the body through two ways: first, studying this topic through surveying all the verses of the Qurʾān. Secondly, studying the main topic and core of the sūra and then interpreting its verses accordingly. Further, the main aim of this article is first, to explain the logical approach which Badīʿ al-Zamān Saʿīd al-Nūrsī has followed in order to eliminate all the doubts about resurrection possibility and the resurrection of the body. Second, it aims at explaining how thematic tafsīr could be used to explain the major Qrʾānic and creed issues such as resurrection. The methodology used in this article is surveying all the writings of Badīʿ al-Zamān Saʿīd al-Nūrsī to well explain his methodology. Finally, the conclusion reached in this article is that proving the resurrection of the body through logic which is derived from the holy Qurʾān is very easy through the methodology used by Badīʿ al-Zamān Saʿīd al-Nūrsī, and his argument could be used to strengthen the belief in the Day of Judgement and to disprove those who deny it.
