About the Course

To gain mastery in the study of tafsir requires one to have a good understanding of the breadth of all the different approaches, styles of tafāsir that our Islamic tradition of Qur’ānic exegesis has to offer. This is a rare opportunity to register for this unique advanced course designed for ʿUlamā and advanced students who wish to master a deep understanding of the different types of  tafāsīr and gain a good grasp of advanced studies in exegesis. The course will cover a mammoth twenty-five books of tafāsīr. Each kitab of tafṣir is explicitly and carefully chosen to develop the student in the various approaches of the mufassirīn and their styles and topics.


This course takes an innovative approach in teaching classical and contemporary Tafasir of Qur’an verse by verse, chapter by chapter, and juz’ by juz’. This new content-based course aims to bolster study for advanced students in understanding the Qur’anic exegesis through examining the various books of Tafasir in Arabic by very different writers.

Students will not just be able to appreciate the great wealth of diverse writings on tafsīr, but they will be accustomed to some of the essential kutub in tafsīr that have had an impact on science.

Course Overview

This course will not just map out the chronology of how writings of tafsīr developed throughout Islamic history, but how each mufassir developed his hermeneutical approach to the Qur’ān. The course will present a different book of tafsīr for different parts of the Qur’ān, beginning with the earliest to the more contemporary works. The aim is to complete the whole Qur’an gradually. Different tafsir kutub have their particularities which are expressed more emphatically in different parts of the Qur’an relative to others. Therefore we have allocated different kutub to different surahs where it was felt that these particularities could be most appreciated.

Immerse yourself in this great opportunity in gaining a broad and deep understanding of some of the most important tafsīr books that have been pivotal in this science and learn the benefits, strengths and critique that exist in them and also about their authors.
