5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Content and Good Translation 25 Jun 2012
By Nawshi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains some of the Quranic Commentary attributed to Iman Jafar Al Sadiq. He is described as one of the founders of Sufism and mystical practice in Islam. He was known to be one of the great teachers in Islamic understanding.

As such this commentary is incredibly valuable and insightful in early Islamic Quranic interpretation. The text is well translated and easy to follow. On a first read it is easy to see the value in his commentary but it takes some consideration and thought to gain any sense of how exceptional it is.

The introduction to the translation and the footnotes are very good. They really add value to the book and help the reader to appreciate the depth of the commentary. There is also the orginal arabic in the back which is helpful when considering the translation.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone interested in Quranic commentaries, Shi Islam and Sufism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Advanced Reading 11 Oct 2012
By Wes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very in depth and very informative. Its not like any other tafsir I've ever read. Thats probably due to the fact that this material is for the ascetics/sufi. Nevertheless it is a good buy. I'd definitely suggest it as a buy for someone interested in a mystical view/path of Islam. This book would be a good buy for someone who is considered 'knoweledgeable' and actually enjoys studying the din. It is not a good buy for new muslims, children or someone who cannot spend the time to absorb the subjects being taught or feelings being conveyed through the elucidations and commentaries of the writters. I also dont know much about the authors as far as their accredidation/ijaza so if that plays a factor, and it should, you may want to research their names and find out a little bit more about them and their sources of knoweledge.

salam

bagi yg mencari full tafsir quran sperti tafsir muh. asad/ muh. ali/ pickthall/ ysuf ali/ jalalayn dll kliatanya tidak cocok, tp klo yg mencari sebagian / ayat2 apa saja (yg menurut penulis) berhubungan / ada hubungannya dengan nilai2 "ascetics/sufisme/mystics" maka buku ini bs jd bhn rujukan dan pertimbangan serta layak untuk direnungkan bg pembacanya karena memancing untuk berpikir dan berpikir, sekian dan terima kasih :)
