    Default List of Tafsirs?

    As salaamu alaykum.

    I have two questions.

    1) How many Tafsirs of the Quran would you guys say there are (not counting Shi'ite ones) that are either considered reliable by the Ulema, or have become famous/widespread among the masses?

    2) Can we list some of these Tafsirs on this thread?

    I hope so insha'allah.

    Jazakallahu Khair.

    Wa'salaam.

    I think Zamakhshari's is also reliable, even though he was a mu'tazili.

    Also, is Razi's Mafatih al-Ghayb the same as At-Tafsir al-Kabir?

    With regard to your question about Mafatih al Ghayb and Tafsir al Kabir being one and the same Tafsir, I know this to be correct.

    But with regard to Zamakhshari's Tafsir (Tafsir al Kashshaf), to the best of my knowledge, it is relied upon, especially in linguistic matter, particularly in Balagha, but not in matters of Aqeedah, as he was a Mu'tazilah.

    Anyone else care to add some other Tafsirs that are considered either relied upon or famous/widespread? Or how many Tafsirs have been authored (by Sunnis only) that either meet the criteria of being relied upon, famous/widespread, or held in high esteem by the vast majority of Ulema?

    > Can you recommend a Qur'anic tafsir for non-Arabic speakers?

    The book we recommend as a Qur'anic tafsir is the recent one
    that summarized the most famous tafsirs (e.g., Ibn Kathir, Tabari,
    Qurtubi, etc.).

    The Book is called "The Noble Qur'an". We recommend the 1 volume
    abridged version for beginners and not the 9 volume full version.
    The authors/compilers of this book are: Dr. Muhsin Khan &
    Dr. Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali

    The late Dr. Taqi ud-Din al-Hilali had studied under shuyukh of
    Qarawayeen University in Morocco.

    Here is a link for your convenience (no endorsement intended):


    http://dar-us-salam.com/store/main.m...tegory_Code=QS

    This recommendation is not meant to undercut the value of other
    Quranic explanation works, such as that of Yusuf `Ali (who gets
    the credit for being the first person to write a reliable/semi-reliable
    explanation of the Qur'an in the English language).

    > Can you recommend a Qur'anic tafsir for Arabic speakers/readers?

    There is a tafsir which is very useful for advanced students
    which summarizes the major views of the previous mufassirin
    who examined the Qur'an from both a dirayah (rational analysis)
    and riwayah (rote narration) view.

    This Tafsir is called "al-Fath al-Qadir" and is listed as
    FQ in the Notes of Sources.

    Please note that there is controversy surrounding the beliefs
    of the author (i.e. Muhammad ibn `Ali ibn Muhammad al-Shawkani),
    but we believe those attacks are mostly exaggerated and are
    promoted by people who are offended by his harsh refutations
    of the views of certain past scholars [As a side note, it is
    never a wise idea to be harsh against particular named individuals
    in one's teachings and because this particular author neglected this
    point of adab, Allah has enshrouded his otherwise magnificient
    works in controversy.]

    In the end, we recommend this tafsir to all advanced students
    of the Qur'an due the fact that the author has summarized
    many thousands of volumes in just five volumes. The work
    is outstanding for this reason and for his clarity in arrangement
    and wording.

    As for beginners who know how to read Arabic, we recommend that
    they memorize (become very closely acquainted with) the Tafsir
    al-Jalalayn before wading through the more elaborate tafasir
    available (e.g., al-Qurtubi, Ibn Kathir, al-Zamakhshari, Ibn Juzayy
    al-Kalbi, Baydaawi, etc.). That way they will know the core
    points of the explanation from the non-essential elaborations.

    - Shaykh Abu Qanit al-Sharif al-Hassani.

    Default Re: List of Tafsirs?

    Below is a fairly comprehensive list of Tafsirs. I have attempted to included only those works which the Ulema have either relied upon or deemed worthy of consideration. Please do note that some Tafsirs listed here, e.g. Tafsir Ibn Abbas, are of disputed authenticity, but have been used by some classical Ulema as a reference.

    If any Ulema could add to this list, or make suggestions for which works ought to be excluded or, if included, be included with an asterisk, please do say so.

    Wa'salaam.
