The studies on Islamic Project Management (IPM) revolve around and focus on specific topics areas such as contracts from the perspective of Islam. Apparently, there are also few studies on the IPM or anything related to that. This chapter in the book is to forward the themes and patterns in the Quran (the Holy Book of the Muslims) of the words of the key elements of PM theory and practices. It is conducted based upon three dimension: (i) studying the text of Qur'anic atahs (verses) regarding the concept, (ii) analyzing the frequent patterns of features of the text and (iii) investigating the thematic characteristics of expression. The contextual meaning of the PM elements in the Quran explains vividly the phenomena of the main project management concepts, theories and practices. The chapter is expected to contribute knowledge to the theory and practices of PM from the perspective of the Quran in the form of themes and patterns. Future research encircles around the research areas that will potentially drive the development of the model of IPM in the general context of theories and industries practices.
