Tafsir al-Qummi (Arabic: تفسير علي بن إبراهیم القمي ), is among the oldest and most important Shi'a commentaries of the Qur'an. It is a riwa'i tafsir (a commentary based on hadith), written by 'Ali b. Ibrahim al-Qummi (d. 307/980), a well-known scholar of fiqh and hadith. Al-Qummi lived contemporary to Imam al-Hadi (a) and Imam Hasan al-'Askari (a), and was one of the teachers of al-Kulayni. This book is a Ta'wili commentary, which means many verses have been interpreted through the virtues of the Ahl al-Bayt (a) or through their enemies' vices. And these are considered to be the esoteric meanings of the verses. The book also discusses issues in Qur'anic studies such as abrogation, muqatta'ah letters, clear and ambiguous verses and non-exclusiveness of verses. Read more
