Tafsirs (commentary) on the Noble Quran for references.

(1)  Tafheem-ul-Quran in English by Maududi:  (English commentary / tafsir).
 http://www.tafheem.net/tafheem.html   


(2)  Another website for commentary / tafsir in English by Abul Ala Maududi.
http://www.englishtafsir.com/Quran/1/index.html

(3)  General commentary on each Surah by Maududi.
http://www.theonlyquran.com/quran/Al-Fathiha/Maududi_Commentry/


(4)   http://quran.ksu.edu.sa/index.php?l#aya=1_1&m=hafs&qaree=husary&trans=ar_mu
In this link you can get Arabic commentary / tafsir along with original Arabic contents of the Noble Quran and its recitations in Arabic.  It's a very good place to visit if you are looking for Arabic pronunciations of Surahs.  Click on "Sura" button and then select the Surah of your choice. You can also get the translation in your choice of language of each verse being recited by clicking on the global image on the left of the recitation sound bar.  Another very nice aspect about this site is that whichever verse is being recited, that verse gets highlighted on the translation or the original script, whichever you choose, so you know which verse is being recited.  It helps still better to learn the Arabic pronunciations.

Thanks for putting this up sister Zeynab.  This tafsir site is fairly good though one needs to carefully perceive the tafsirs for authenticity.

hummm, not all tafsirs are correct at this tafheem link as far as I have read. But surely it's a lot better than all other tafsir sites that exist.

For variation on tafsirs, also check the ones by G.A. Parwez at the following link:

Right sr.Heba and br. TS.  Maududi's tafsirs have to be read with a lot of caution because they are frequently unflawless.  The reason being that he uses too much of the Hadith and altered Bibles for interpreting the Quran, whereas, as a good interpreter he should have been focused only on the Quranic verses he reads.  Careful reflections of Quranic verses help to bring out the best of interpretations.  But unfortunately that's too much to expect from our jurists, majority of them being such devout Hadith & Bible lovers. 

And, thanks for putting up G.A. Parvez's tafsirs too.  His explanations, generally, make more sense.  At least he doesn't depend on the Hadith for writing his tafsirs.  But he hasn't come up with tafsirs for all Quranic Surahs.

It's really hard to find tafsirs of the complete Quran.  The main reason I picked Maududi was that it contains commentaries of almost the entire Quran.  But of course, all his tafsirs are surely not correct.

Tafseer is very essential to understand the essence of what is said in the Quran. I normally use Ibn Katheer, Asad and I also have one of Syed Qutub.

I found that most Tafsirs do not quote verses from hadith etc that contradicts the Quran which leads me to the  point why don't they discard all other material outside the Quran that  contradicts it.

Maula Wawdudi, I have not read his tafseer but he has a very focus on hadiths etc as he is from the Indo pak subcontinent.

Well, from what I've read, several tafsirs do quote various ahadith.  Even those that don't, their explanation discreetly hovers around some Hadith narration or the other.  Just to pick one example out of many.  In almost all tafsirs the reference to the word "kausar" in Surah Al-Kausar is to a stream in Jannah.  This tafsir is not compatibile with the Quran because the Quran gives no reasons to presume "Kausar" is a stream in Paradise.  The streams in Paradise have been specified in the Quran.  Indeed there might be many more which Allah has not yet told us.  However, the interpretation of Surah Al-Kausar is very simple.  "Kausar" clearly refers to the term "abundance" meaning "plenty" as a source of comfort to the Prophet (SAW).  To use the term "Abundance" as a proper noun and claim without any evidence from the Quran that it's a stream in al-Jannah has to be taken as an unfounded presumption.   Sister Heba has penned a very helpful article on the interpretation of Surah Kausar which gives the complete set of essential details.

The term "Kausar" interpreted by Hadith compared to the Quran

Dear brother Salaam, could you please put up the links here of the tafsir sites you consult.  It would surely help us a lot.  As you can see, at the moment we have 2 tafsirs links, one by Maududi and the other one by G.A. Parvez.  The former's explanations are based purely on Hadith narrations, while the later is focused more directly on the Quran.   It would be better to have some more sources for tafsirs, especially if they aren't wholly dependent on Hadith narrations.  It will help in understanding the Quran still better, InshAllah.

May Allah bless all of you.

Sister Zeynab

here are the sites, please note they do also quote hadiths here but you can ignore the hadiths and only see the tafsir, mind you many of these hadiths quoted are not very ludicrous but thats my view and way one does not need hadith to get hold of the tafseer.

It's tough to find tafsirs.  I've been meaning to write an important piece on Verses 20/21 of Surah Maidah.  Have been checking for opinions in tafsirs.  The tafheem of Maududi largely borrows its interpretations from the stories of the old & new testaments .. which makes it useless. Though G.A. Pervez writes very well, I noted that the site I posted actually has very little tafsirs.  It's mostly translations.  I also discovered that most websites & sources don't know the difference between tafsir and translation.  The links put up by salaam2011 seem to be translations not tafsirs, except the Islamicity link.  But here the tafsirs are in audio according to the division of juzz* and not chapter-wise.  In all other places, they mention "tafsir" as heading, but what they give is actually verse by verse translation, which already have here.

*To ease the reading process, the Quran is additionally divided into 30 equal sections, called a juz' (plural: ajiza).  The divisions of juz' are not done along chapter lines and often break from one section to another in the middle of a chapter.  It doesn't affect the reading chapter-wise at all.  The purpose is only to make it easier for a person to read an equal amount each day and thus all ajiza or sections are equal in length. It's especially useful during the month of Ramadan when during Taravi prayers, one juz is read on every evening and thus the reading of the Quran is completed in 30 days.

I absolutely agree with your findings, sister Heba.  First off, majority of Maududi's tafheem is far from correct.  He constantly keeps slipping back on Hadith narrations and Bible stories to assist his interpretations, turning them into misinterpretations.

I haven't yet checked the links given by that booted out member.  But I'm not surprised to know from u that those links contain little or no tafsirs.  That matches with your observation that many people are not actually aware of the difference between tafsir and translation.  u r totally correct about that.  If u google search for Quranic explanations with search words such as "Quran tafsirs" or "Tafsirs of the Quran," the search engine will take u to the translation sites only. 

As we talked earlier on PM, those verses of Surah Al-Maidah are really important.  I would be very grateful if u please prepare a write up on them and post it on our Quran board of 'specic verse articles.'
