Collection of statements on the interpretation of verses of the Qur’an), more often referred to as Tafseer al-Tabary is a popular work of traditional Tafseer by the Persian scholar Muhammad Ibn Jareer al-Tabary (d. 923 CE).

  • The holy Prophet’s commentary on a verse (or word) of the Qur’an.
  • The Prophetic traditions (Hadith).
  • Narrations of the companions.
