Imam Muhammad Ali al-Sabuni, Rashad Jameer (tr.)
Selections from Safwat al-Tafasir (from Ibn Kathir, al-Razi, al-Qurtubi, Kashshaf, al-Alusi, Hashiyah al-Sawi, Abu Sa'ud)
Shaykh Muhammad ‘Ali Al-Sabuni is a Syrian specialist in the knowledge of tafsir (exegesis of the Holy Qur’an) who has authored one of the most widely accepted tafsirs of the Qur’an entitled Safwat al-Tafasir (The Choicest Selections from the Books of Tafsir). Since its publication in 1978 and with more depth than the renowned Tafsir al-Jalalayn, Safwat al-Tafasir has quickly become a celebrated tafsir for beginners. It is highly-respected in Islamic Seminaries worldwide as a reliable reference point to acquire the mainstream understanding of the Qur’an.
