About the Author

Fakhr al-Din al-Razi (d. 1210) was a leading Islamic scholar of the twelfth century. He was a prolific author on theology and jurisprudence but is best known for his commentary on the Qur'an, The Great Exegesis.


'Razi's Tafsir is a monument to Islam's great tradition of learning and an incredibly rich pathway into it. Making it accessible to an English-speaking audience, by a translator who is a scholar himself, is a great contribution that will be appreciated by many for many years to come.'
-- Jonathan AC Brown
'Dr. Sohaib Saeed offers us a meticulous and readable translation of a masterpiece of Qur'anic exegesis by the great Muslim intellectual Fakhr al-Din al-Razi, whose goal was to illuminate every possible shade of meaning of the Muslim Revelation, from moral-ethical and legal, to rational and allegorical-mystical, not to mention linguistic, grammatical and historical. A must-read for every serious student and connoisseur of the Qur'an.'
-- Alexander Knysh, Professor of Islamic Studies
