Tafhim-ul-Qur’an – The Meaning of the Qur’an (English Tafsir) 12

The Meaning of the Qur’an is a fresh English rendering of Tafhim-ul-Qur’an, Maulana Syed Abu Ala Moududi’s monumental and masterly Urdu translation of the Qur’an and a selection of his commentary. The translator has undertaken the delicate and difficult task of rendering this work in English under the guidance of the Maulana himself. Here is a work with a difference, by a dedicated scholar of an entirely different sort. An immense wealth of profound understanding of the Qur’an is here, a vast treasure of knowledge and deep insight, and a valuable exposition of some social, political, economic and legal teachings of the Qur’an.

This comprehensive Tafsir answers contemporary questions, and makes the Qur’an fully relevant to the concerns of day, yet it loses nothing of its timelessness nor sacrifices any of the traditional understanding. It demonstrates the unity and coherence of the Qur’an by centring everything on its message, like gems hung on a single string.

This Tafsir is particularly suitable for Muslims with no direct access to the Arabic original.

      Asalamu’alaikum Brother Farooq, Masha’Allah, that’s so nice. We love his Tafseer and it is the one we use the most. He did a great deed for the Ummah and dedicated his life to this Tafseer. May Allah give him a high order in Jannah, Ameen.

          Walaikum’asalam, Jazak’Allah Khair for your comment. You are right, Ibn Kathir’s (RA) Tafsir of the Noble Qur’an is one of the best and we have read it. It is also available on this site. We find for people who are looking for something easier to understand and navigate, Tafeem ul Qur’an is also excellent, Alhamdulillah. May Allah make it easy for us and open His Book and its meaning for all of us, Ameen. Please share with your loved ones, Insha’Allah.
