Introduction: This article is an attempt to examine the effectiveness of Conceptual Blending Theory by Fauconnier and Turner in explaining cognitive components of the conceptualization process. The scope of the research covers the last fifteen chapters of  the Holy Quran. Method: To do this, descriptive-analytic method was used. Data collection was a library and note taking method. Valid interpretations of the Holy Quarn and Noor Comprehensive software have been used in analyzing research data. The main question of this paper is whether it is possible to analyze the conceptual structure of the Holy Quran by using the parameters of Conceptual Blending Theory. It is assumed that by using Conceptual Blending framework we are able to explain the conceptual structure of the Holy Quran. This method of conceptualization has roots in the relationship between the language and mind. Result: The findings of this paper show that the application of Conceptual Blending provides an excellent analytical tool for exploring conceptual structure of the Holy Quran. Conclusion: We can analyze the conceptual structure of the Holy Quran by using Conceptual Blending framework.
