Identifying and presenting a comprehensive Koranic approach to motivation is the purpose of this research. The main question of the study is: what are the principles and factors of motivation and how are the human's motivations and behaviors formed from the viewpoint of Koran? For replying that question, the whole Koran was studied verse by verse with the help of Koran by Koran interpretation and focusing on Izutsu's semantic analysis. Then the related verses were collected and finally an integrated approach was obtained by the content analysis of verses. Some research results are: a) the motivation view of Koran needs to be obtained from all of the verses applying the techniques of seeking for words and statements meanings; b) from Koranic view, the origins of motivations are a series of human's interconnected aspects (will, reason, biological systems, and passion) and the devil's temptations which are all influenced by the human's belief in divine providence (see figure 1); c) in addition to current motivation classifications, the Koran presents some new motivation classifications; d) from Koranic view, the motivation conflict is in the material-material and material-spiritual form not in the spiritual-spiritual form.
