Description :


Tafsir al-Jalalayn, meaning 'The Commentary of the Two Jalals' is named after its two authors: Jalalu'd-Din al-Mahalli (1389-1459), who wrote half of it, and his student, Jalalu'd-Din as-Suyuti (1445-1505), one of the greatest scholars of all time, who completed it after al-Mahalli's death.


For half a millennium Tafsir al-Jalalayn has been considered the essential first step in the study of the meanings of the Qur'an by teachers and students throughout the Islamic world. Although it is amongst the shortest and simplest of the complete commentaries, it is at the same time both wide-ranging and profound.




About Imam Jalal al-Din Mahalli,

Al-Imam Jalalu'd-din Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Mahalli (791-864/1389-1459) of Cairo was a versatile, scholar who excelled in jurisprudence, theology, grammar, rhetoric, and Qur'anic commentary. He was known for his scrupulousness, fear of Allah, and fearlessness in upholding the truth. Al-Mahalli was offered the highest judicial positions but refused them. He taught jurisprudence in the Mu'ayyadiyya and Barquqiyya madrassah's. Abstinent and ascetic, he lived on what he earned by trade. His most famous work is his Quranic commentary, Tafsir al-Jalalayn, which he began halfway through the text with Surat al-Kahf, ending with an-Nas and al-Fatiha.. Although he died before he could start the other half, the work was completed by his student, Jalalu'd-Din as-Suyuti. Al-Mahallis other books include commentaries on Jami' al-Jawami', al-Burda, al-Manahij fi'l-fiqh, al-Waraqat fi'l-usul, Kitab al Jihad.




About Imam Jalal al-Din Suyuti :

Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal al-Din Abi Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Sabiq al-Din, Jalal al-Din al-Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi`i al-Ash`ari, also known as Ibn al-Suyuti (849-911AH /1445-1505), The mujtahid Imam and renewer (mujaddid) of the tenth Islamic century, foremost hadith master, encyclopaedist, historian, and biographer and probably one of the most prolific of all Islamic writers. There are an enormous number of his essays and treatises preserved today. A number of his writings concerned scientific topics or issues related to natural science and food and regimen, amongst other things.


From Asyut in Egypt, he was among the most renowned and prolific Muslim scholars of all time. He wrote more than 300 books, covering every aspect of the Islamic sciences. He memorised the Noble Quran at the age of eight, and then went on to study with more than 150 scholars. He travelled extensively in his quest for knowledge to Damascus, Hijaz, Yemen, India, Morocco, and the lands south of Morocco, as well as in Egypt. Al-Suyuti devoted his life to learning, teaching and writing. He was noble, abstinent and self-sufficient, distancing himself from people of rank and power and living on what he earned by teaching. Major writings of al-Suyuti that remain widely used today include al-Itqan, on the Quranic sciences; and Tafsir al-Jalalayn, which he completed when only 22.
