About the book


In association with K. A. Nizami Center for Quranic Studies, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India

This edited volume of fourteen insightful chapters and an extensive bibliography brings into light the robust tradition of tafsir in Urdu, which is next only to Arabic and Persian in both quality and quantity. Scores of tafasir in Urdu written in the last two hundred years, including the influential ones by Ashraf Ali Thanwi, Abul Kalam Azad, Abdul Majid Daryabadi, and Abul Ala Mawdudi have addressed, in their own varied ways, the challenges posed by Westernization, modernity and pluralism. This, in turn, underscores the timeless, universal message of the Quran which is valid for all time and place.
