Description :

Ibn Juzay al-Kalbi began his exegesis of the Qur'an with a short introduction to the various disciplines related to explaining the Qur'an. One of the topics he included is Sufism. The basic concern of Sufism is the heart : knowing its good and bad qualities, how to rid it of bad qualities, and how to instill it with the good. Ibn al-Juzay explained its inclusion, saying that Sufism is ...


 “connected to the Qur'an since the Qur'an mentions divine knowledge,
struggling against the self [nafs], and illuminating and purifying hearts via
obtaining praiseworthy character and avoiding blameworthy character.”


He then enumerated twelve topics related to Sufism which he would explain in his tafsir.

The topics Ibn Juzay covered include: thanks [shukr]; Godfearingness [taqw?]; remembrance [dhikr]; patience [sabr]; tawhid; love for Allah; reliance upon Him [tawakkul]; vigilance [mur?qabah]; fear and hope [khawf and raja]; repentance [tawbah]; and sincerity [ikhlas].

Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi al-Gharnati (d.741h.) was a sufi scholar, a poet, historian, and fiqh from Al-Andalus. He is also known as the writer (Rihla) to whom Ibn Battuta dictated an account of his travels. Ibn Juzayy was the son of Abú-l-Qásim Muhammad Ibn Juzayy al-Maliki (the panegyrist of Abú-l-Hayyáy Yúsuf of Granada) wrote many religious works such as his al-Qawanin al-Fiqhiyyah or "The Laws of Jurisprudence" a comparative manual of the jurisprudence of the four Sunni madhhabs (Maliki, Hanafi, Shafi`i, Hanbali) with emphasis on the Maliki school.

He died in Fez in 1357 C.E. two years after the completion of the Rihla of Ibn Battuta.
