The Prophet tells us, “The best of you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it.” [Al-Bukhari] This is an excellent tool for anyone who would love to just that.
The structure and simplicity of al-Tafsir al-Manhaji (Methodical Interpretation of the Noble Quran) make it suitable for students of all ages. It has been authored by a team of scholars, all of them experts with Ph.D.’s in Tafsir, and reviewed by the famous scholar and da’iyah, Dr. Umar al-Ashqar. Scholars include: Dr. Fadhal Abbas, Dr. Ahmad Nawfal, Dr. Salah Al-Khalidi, Dr. Ahmad Shukri, and Dr. Jamal Abu Hassan.
The goal of this textbook is to provide full-time and weekend Islamic schools a complete curriculum for teaching Tafseer of the Noble Qur’an to their students. It is suitable for students who have no background in studying the Qur’an or Arabic but will also be beneficial for those students seeking a basic tool to improve their understanding.
This Tafseer provides a brief overview of the subject(s) and background of every Surah. It is broken up into lessons, and every lesson provides a list of important vocabulary, commentary, a list of important reflections that can be derived from the verses, and questions to test the students’ reading and comprehension. Many lessons also incorporate special exercises such as essay questions or small research assignments to help build the students’ knowledge and understanding of the Qur’an.
