ʿAlī Al-Ramlī on Al-Tafsīr al-Muyassar and ʿUmdah al-Tafsīr


Shaikh Abu al-Ḥasan ʿAlī Al-Ramlī, may Allāh protect him from every harm, tweeted:

I advise every Muslim to place by his head [near his bed] Al-Tafsīr Al-Muyassar, by a selected group of scholars, and before he goes to sleep or at the beginning of his day, to read a little from it, so that he not be one who forsakes [gaining] understanding of His Lord’s book. (10:47 am)

Note: There are other tafsīrs [explanations of the Qur’ān] with the same name. Do not accept anything but this [one], the authors: nukhbah min al-ʿulamāʾ [a selected group of scholars]. You will recognize it by this. (10:50 am)

ʿUmdah al-Tafsīr, the summary of Ibn Kathīr’s tafsīr by Aḥmad Shākir, is the best book for a student of knowledge on [the subject of] tafsīr. I advise students of knowledge to do a lot of reading from it and to do that again and again until it gets firmly rooted in his mind. (12:34)
