A collection of the long-unavailable tafasir, or commentaries on the Qur'an, which help to properly explain and contextualize the revelation, this series aims to make leading exegetical works—in translation, unabridged, and faithful to the letter and meaning of the Arabic—widely available for study and research. An indispensable reference for students and scholars of Islamic and religious studies, this volume—originally written by celebrated Qur'anic commetator Imam al-Wahidi—offers the first-ever complete English translation of the most significant works concerning the occasions, reasons, and context for the revelation of the Holy Qur'an. Catering to Muslims and non-Muslims who are often unaware of the circumstances of the revelation of the verses when they quote from the Qur'an, this book provides knowledge of the history of the Qur'an's interpretation that, coupled with an understanding of contemporary social and political issues, contributes to a better-informed understanding.
