A lively and highly readable English rendering of Tafhim al-Quran. This Tafsir answers contemporary questions and makes the Quran fully relevant to the concerns of our day, yet it loses none of its timelessness nor sacrifices any of the traditional understanding. Each surah is prefaced by an account of the background and teachings.
Volume XIII (v. 13) of Towards Understanding the Qur’an (Tafhim al-Qur’an) includes Sayyid Abul Ala Mawdudi’s commentary on Surah 66: At-Tahrim to Surah 77: Al-Mursalat
Translated and Edited by Zafar Ishaq Ansari
