The Science of Tafsir (^Ilm at-Tafsir), which is the knowledge of the interpretation of the Qur’an, is an honorable knowledge with which one is enabled to comprehend the precious meanings of the Glorious Qur’an. The Science of Tafsir leads to the proper deduction of the religious judgments contained in the Qur’an and to the benefit of taking lessons from the stories narrated therein. Moreover, this science explains the reasons behind the revelation of its verses (ayahs), addresses subjects such as whether the verses were revealed in Makkah (Makkiyyan) or in al-Madinah (Madiniyyan), whether they have one clear meaning (muhkam) or have more than one meaning and require a proper deduction of an appropriate meaning (mutashabih), abrogating (nasikh) or abrogated (mansukh), specific (khas) or general (^am), and whether they contain a threat of castigation (wa^id) or a promise of reward (wa^d), and many other benefits.
The honor of the Science of Tafsir is grand and the reward of spreading it is magnificent. We have attempted to translate into the English language the interpretation of the Thirtieth (30th) part of the Qur’an (Juz’ ^Amma) and the Opening Chapter (Surah al-Fatihah). We relied in our endeavor on precious books of interpretation in the Arabic language. One of which is Al-Bahr Al-Muhit, authored by Ibn Hayyan Al-Andalusiyy. Another text is one of the most competent and reliable interpretation that was compiled by the Research Division of the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects and is entitled “AD-DURR AL-MASUN FI TAFSIR JUZ’ ^AMMA YATASA’LUN.”
We named this book ” The Jeweled Interpretation of the Thirtieth Part of the Glorious Qur’an (Juz’ ^Amma) and Surah al-Fatihah.”
We ask Allah to make our endeavor sincere and acceptable, of widespread benefit, and a reason for our expeditious passage over Assirat [1]and salvation in the Hereafter.
