Tafsir al-Qummi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Tafsir Qomi)

The Tafsir al-Qummi, also known as Tafsir Qomi, is a Shi'i commentary on the Quran by Ali ibn Ibrahim al-Qummi (died 919). It is based on the method of quoting hadiths from the Imams. Most of these hadiths were transmitted by al-Qummi's father, who was one of Muhammad ibn Ya'qub al-Kulayni's teachers.


The Tafsir al-Qummi comprises at least two different tafsirs that have been combined: one by Ali ibn Ibrahim al-Qummi himself, and the other by Abu al-Jarud Ziyad ibn al-Mundhir, a companion of the fifth Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (c. 676 – c. 732) who later became the eponymous founder of the Jarudiyya (an early Zaydi sect). Abu al-Jarud's tafsir had been appended to the first by the latter's first transmitter, Abu al-Fadl al-Abbas ibn Muhammad.
