Qur'anic Exegesis in Classical Literature : With Particular Reference to Abu al-Qasim al-Qushayri
Abu al-Qasim al-Qushayri (b. 376), the author of al-Risalah (Epistle to the Sufis), one of the earliest manuals of the science of tasawwuf, was also a mufassir who wrote a complete commentary of the Qur’an.
His work is regarded as the first original mystical commentary written by a man who was both a theologian and a sufi. It is also considered a fusion of both the Shari’ah and Tariqah, bridging the gap between the ‘ulama’ and the sufis, during a time when the friction between sufis and traditional ‘ulama’ was at its peak with both sides accusing each other of deviating from Islam.
In studying this historic tafsir, the author first discusses the science of Qur’anic exegesis and its development from the earliest days. He discusses briefly the history of early tafsir works, the various kinds of tafsirs and their historical and political backgrounds. He also aims to show how sufi scholars have given a new life to the interpretation of the Qur’an.
