It is our privilege to publish this valuable work on Tafsir by the renowned twentieth-century Islamic scholar, Sheikh Sayyid Abul Hasan Ali nadwi. Although it is not a complete Tafsir, it embodies Shaykh Nadwi’s insightful comments on around ninety Qura’anic passages. His elucidation brings into sharper light the eternal guidance of the Qur’an on a wide range of issues relating to both individual and collective life – articles of faith, acts of worship and service to Allah, social relation, morals and manners, laws, religious duties, Sirah, materialism and lessons from the qur’am.
Throughout his illustrious life Shaykh Nadwi strove from the cause of Islam. At numerous gatherings he delivered talks in order to put across the message of the Qur’an. The present work is a collection of these talks, which facilitates a better understanding of the qur’an. Being thoroughly grounded in the immensely rich field of Islamic scholarship, and displaying a native-like command over Arabic, Shaykh Nadwi bring home valuable points in these talks which are aimed at preaching the meaning and message of the qur’an. More remarkable, these talks are addressed to twenty-first century Muslims guiding them to grasp and derive the wisdom embodied in the Qrr’an. Indeed all the works and writing of Shaykh Nadwi went a long way in promoting the call of the Qur’an. The Islamic Foundation, therefore, felt privileged to publish this English translation of Shaykh Nadwi’s work entitled Qur’ani Ifadat in the original Urdu.
