Published by Dar al-Hadith, Egypt.





Description :

Al-Kashshaf an-Haqa'iq al-Tanzil - also referred to as Tafsir al-Kashshaf or Tafsir al-Zamakhshari ("the Revealer") is a seminal tafsir (commentary on the Qur'an) by Imam al-Zamakhshari written in the 12th century. Considered a primary source by all major scholars, it is famous for its deep linguistic analysis, demonstrations of the supremacy of declamation of the Qur'an, and the representation of the method the Qur'an uses to convey meaning using literary elements and figurative speech.


During his research, Al-Zamakhshari referred to many older works and commentaries, especially Ma'an al-Qur'an, which constitutes the basis of his work.


A very elegant analysis of words is done throughout the commentary, while figurative expressions are broken down, and appropriate Qira'at is chosen where needed. Abrogated verses are indicated along with their successors. Verses containing Islamic jurisprudence are deduced according to the Hanafi school of law (which was the juristic school al-Zamakhshari followed).


One of the most criticised aspects of Al-Zamakhshariís interpretations is his adaptation of Qur'anic verses according to the Muítazilah viewpoint. Al-Zamakhshari has interpreted verses that cohere with his viewpoint as muhkam (rigid), and those which donít as mutashabih (allegorical), and has abandoned the apparent meanings of some verses for the sake of preserving a strict Muítazilah view.



This Edition :

This is a decent print presented in four volumes by Dar al-Hadith, Cairo. Using two-colour ink on decent paper. Fully referenced, with extensive footnotes.




About the Author :

He is Abu al-Qasim Mahmud ibn Umar al-Zamakhshari, known widely as al-Zamakhshari also called Jar'Allah (Arabic for "God's neighbour), was a scholar of Persian origin, who subscribed to the Muʿtazilite theological doctrine, born in Khwarizmi, but lived most of his life in Bukhara, Samarkand, and Baghdad. He was a great authority on the Arabic language as well as a rationalist theologian.


Al-Zamakhshari was born in Zamakhshar on Wednesday 27 Rajab, 467 AH/ 18 March, 1075 C.E. He used Persian for some of his work, although he was a strong supporter of the Arabic language as well as an opponent of the Shu'ubiyya movement.


He is best known for Tafsir al-Kashaf, a seminal commentary on the Qur'an. The commentary is famous for its deep linguistic analysis of the verses, however has been criticised for the inclusion of Mu'tazilite philosophical views. In spite of its Mu'tazili theology it was famous among scholars.
