Tanwir al-Miqbas min Tafsir Ibn Abbas (Arabic: تنوير المقباس من تفسير بن عباس) is one of the most prominent Sunni Tafsir, attributed to Abd-Allah ibn Abbas and hence called "Tafsir Ibn Abbas".[1] It was collected by Abu Tahir Muhammad ibn Yaqub al-Fayruz Aabadi (d. 817H).[2] Recent evidence show that Tanwir al-Miqbas is a concise version made by al-Dinawari of Ibn al-Kalbi's Tafsir.

Tanwir al-Miqbas is not to be confused with the other "Tafsir Ibn Abbas", published by Darul Fikr in Beirut, Lebanon. That version's chain of narration is considered more authentic since it goes back to the companion Ali ibn Abi Talha. The cover for the Darul Fikr edition is seen here: Media:tafsiribnabbas.jpg
