Introduction to the Principles of Qur'anic Exegesis, is the English translation with notes of Al-Madhkal ila Usul al-Tafsir
, by the premiere translator of Arabic texts Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi.
The Art of Qur'anic commentary or exegesis is one of the most essential branches of Islamic knowledge, because the Qur'an is the primary source of knowledge for all Muslims. The author, a teacher of Islamic Sciences at the illustrious Azhar University in Cairo, is in possession of a profound grasp of the traditionally scholarly sciences, as well as being fully conversant with the cultural, sociological and historical conditions of the times.
This unique book brings together, for the first time, traditional and new principles required in Qur'anic interpretation. It sets the challenge for present day scholars to take up the mantle of elucidating the Qur'an within our modern context and reinforces to the layman what a bewilderingly wondrous gift it is that Allah has placed in our midst.Table of Contents
