Tafsir al-Baghawi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Four volume set of Tafsir al-Baghawi in Arabic (Dar al-Ma'refah edition, Lebanon).

Tafsīr al-Baghawī (Arabic: تفسير البغوي), also known as Ma‘ālim al-Tanzīl, is a classical Sunni tafsir (Qur'anic exegesis) by Husayn b. Mas'ūd al-Baghawī (d. 1122), written as an abridgement of Tafsir al-Thalabi by al-Tha'labī (d. 1035). It is generally classified as one of the books of narration-based tafsir, as it collects and presents many statements from the Sahabah and Tabi'oon. The book primarily relies on 11 reliable chains of narrations, which al-Baghawi mentions in the introduction to his work.[1] It currently exists in four volumes and eight volumes in its Lebanon edition and Cairo edition respectively.
