Description :

This work gives a particular reference to Abu al-Qasim al-Qushayri, may Allah be pleased with him, the author of the Sufi work, al-Risalah, who wrote a complete commentary of the Qur'an, which is regarded as the first 'mystical' commentary, a fusion of Shariah and Tariqah.


The author studies the history of this tafsir, the science of Qur'anic tafsir and its development, aiming to show how Sufi scholars too have given a new life to the interpretation of the Qur'an.


Imam Abul Qasim Al-Qushayri :

Imam al-Qushayri, Radi Allahu anhu, was the student of the leading sufi scholar of the time; Shaykh Abu `Ali al-Daqqaq, may Allah be pleased with him. Al-Qushayri, was a muhaddith [master of aHadith] who transmitted hadith to pupils by the thousands in Naysabur, in which he fought the Mu`tazila until he flew to Makkah to protect his life. He was also a mufassir who wrote a complete commentary of the Qur'an entitled Lata'if al-isharat bi tafsir al-Qur'an (The subtleties and allusions in the commentary of the Qur'an).
