Abstract

Tafsīr Jāmi‘ al-Bayān ‘an Ta’wīl Āy al-Quran by Allama Ibn Jarīr Ṭabarī (d. 310 AH), holds a prominent position in the field of exegetical literature. Written in the early eras, this exegesis comprises of ten volumes. Due to its numerous distinctive aspects, it serves as a primary source for later commentators. Ibn Jarīr Ṭabarī, known as Imam al-Mufassirīn, deduces guidance from the Quran, Hadith, and the maxims of early scholars in interpreting and elucidating the verses of the Quran. Moreover, he compiles and collectively presents the statements of grammarians, rhetoricians and the opinions of jurists. Imam Ṭabarī’s methods of preference and comparison in his interpretation, which includes deriving rulings from the verses and presenting historical evidence as testimonies, highlights the benefits of exegesis and elucidates his approach to interpretation. This article sheds light on the methodology of interpretation by Imam Ṭabarī and the characteristics of Tafsīr Ṭabarī.
