What is Tafsir

The essence of Tafsir in Islam lies in elucidating the words of Allah as found in the Quran. It is a vital aspect of Islamic scholarship, focusing on interpreting the meanings of Quranic verses.

"Tafsir" originates from the Arabic word "Fassara," connoting exposition and clarification.

Before delving into Tafsir's various types and texts, it's crucial to comprehend its fundamental significance within Islam.

Brief History of Tafsir

The tradition of interpreting the Quran, known as Tafsir in Islam, traces back to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as the primary source.

Following his passing, his companions assumed the task of elucidating the Quranic verses, drawing from their firsthand experiences of witnessing its revelation and comprehending its contextual significance.

These companions, notably figures like Abdullah Ibn Abbas, Zayd Ibn Thaabit, and Ali Ibn Abee Taalib, relied on Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) teachings to transmit the Quranic interpretations to their disciples.

After their demise, their students, known as "the successors," carried forward this endeavour, building upon the foundations laid by their mentors.
