[Here’s Part 1.]
Note: Okay, I’ve updated the plan. I think I’ll spend a day on each ayah but I’ll only use four tafsirs: Al-Muyassir, Al-Jalalyn, As-Saadi and Al-Baghawi.
I’ll link to Ibn Kathir’s translation as well as Dr. Saleh As-Saleh’s tafsir lecture (which is based on Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen’s tafsir).
Insha-Allah, I’ll try to add the others tafsirs (Zubdah At-Tafsir, Al-Jazairi and Ibn Uthaimeen) after Ramadan. My apologies for the change in plan.
As for today, I’ll complete the tafsir of the first ayah. Starting from tomorrow, I’ll do one ayah a day, insha-Allah.
[The book I’m using is entitled “Tahdhib Tafsir Al-Baghawi”. It’s an abridgement of the original tafsir.]
Shaabi and a group said: Alif-Laam-Meem and all the letters of the Arabic alphabet at the beginning of the surahs are from the unclear matters of Allah alone possesses knowledge. They are a mystery of the Quran. So we believe in them (from what is obvious) and consign the knowledge of them to Allah.
A benefit of mentioning (them is): to command belief in them.
Dr. Saleh As-Saleh’s tafsir
[The audio includes the tafsir of the second ayah of Surah Al-Baqarah.]
