It is reported that Imam al-Hussain (a) said:
“The Book of Allah is based on four things: expressions, allusions, subtleties, and realities. The expressions are for the common people; the allusions are for the elite; the subtleties are for the friends of Allah, and the realities are for the prophets.”
Islamic Education Department is proud to announce the launch of Tafsīr Tadabbur al-Qur'an.
This work is the awaited manifestation of a long-held dream by The World Federation of KSIMC to publish the tafsīr of the whole Qur'an in the English language.
Tafsīr Tadabbur al-Qur'an is authored by the prominent scholars Shaykh Abbas Jaffer and Dr Masuma Jaffer, along with contributions from Shaykh Mohammad Saeed Bahmanpour and Shaykh Dr Tahir Ridha Jaffer.
In it, the authors have employed a novel style of presenting tafsīr by combining reflective, and practical elements that of utmost significance for everyday life within the explanation of the verses. It also draws on the work of several classical and modern scholars, from the school of the Ahl al-Bayt (a).
The verses are discussed in a simple and comprehensible way, so that readers with no knowledge of Arabic and no background in Qur’anic studies can find it excitingly easy to understand.
In this preliminary volume, five chapters have been explored; namely, the frequently recited: al-Fātiḥah, al-Kāfirūn, al-Ikhlāṣ, al-Falaq, and al-Nās.
