Tafhim ul-Qur'angif.gif

The Meaning of the Qur'an (Arabic: Tafhim al-Qur'an[1]) is a book in six volumes written by the Islamic scholar Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi (1903–1979). Among the newer ones, this is an exegeses of the Qur'an (Arabic: tafsir), based on the Sunni hadith literature.

Among things, it includes a chapter introductions for each and every Surah, explaining the name, period of revelation and a large section on its historical background.

Editions[edit]

Criticism[edit]

Shi'a do not regard this tafseer as authentic. They believe his book contains a bias towards Muhammad's household that even other Sunni scholars do not show in their tafseers.[citation needed]
