Tadabbur-i-Qur'an (Urdu: تدبر قرآن‎) is a tafsir (exegeses) of the Qur'an by Amin Ahsan Islahi based on the concept of thematic and structural coherence, which was originally inspired by Allama Hamiduddin Farahi. The tafsir is extended over nine volumes of six thousand pages. It was originally written in Urdu, but now it is being translated in English.


It expounds each surah as a coherent discourse, arranging surahs into pairs, and establishing seven major surah divisions - the entire Qur'an thus emerges as a well-connected and systematic book.[1]

Each division has a distinct theme. Topics within a division are more or less in the order of revelation. Within each division, each member of the pair complements the other in various ways. The seven divisions are as follows:

Group From To Central theme
1 Al-Fatiha [Quran 1:1] Al-Ma'ida [Quran 5:1] Islamic law
2 Al-An'am [Quran 6:1] At-Tawba [Quran 9:1] The consequences of denying Muhammad for the polytheists of Mecca
3 Yunus [Quran 10:1] An-Nur [Quran 24:1] Glad tidings of Muhammad's domination
4 Al-Furqan [Quran 25:1] Al-Ahzab [Quran 33:1] Arguments on the prophethood of Muhammad and the requirements of faith in him
5 Saba [Quran 34:1] Al-Hujraat [Quran 49:1] Arguments on monotheism and the requirements of faith in it
6 Qaf [Quran 50:1] At-Tahrim [Quran 66:1] Arguments on afterlife and the requirements of faith in it
7 Al-Mulk [Quran 67:1] An-Nas [Quran 114:1] Admonition to the Quraysh about their fate in the Herein and the Hereafter if they deny Muhammad
