I studied the Arabic version of this tafseer and it was brilliant alhamd... but the english version does contain a few ommitions although its still a good buy as easy to follow and understand. However, personally for an english tafseer i prefer the Tafsir ibn kathir as its much more detailed and has hadiths added in too to further explain the quranic verses etc.

The work of an eminent Islamic judge of the past Jalalu-Din Al Mahalli completed by his student, Jalalu-Din As-Sayuti. Hence the term Jalalayn meaning 'the two Jalal's'.

It is a translation and explanation (Tafsir) of the sacred book of Islam - the Holy Quran. It is all in one volume so accessible to the lay reader. I am not aware of any shortcomings in this work, except if you would like more detail then you need to choose another Tafsir work.

This is a translation of one of the classic commentaries on the Quran the tafsir Jalalayn. It is a very popular book in the Arabic speaking world especially in that its very simple and easy to read. It is by no means a detailed explanation of the Quran but rather just gives a line or two to explain difficult verses to the reader.

My concern when I initially purchased it was if this would be true to the original in that it would be an easy reference book for English speakers reading the Quran. I need not had worried as the translators have done a very good job at using simple English that does not bog down the reader with complex terminology. A problem that some translations do suffer from. Not every single verse is explained however and someone buying this should be mindful of this. A potential buyer should also be aware that there are many other commentaries of the Quran that have far more detail to them such as Ali Unal however the obvious value of this book is its classic historical value.

Well worth buying. Nicely put together, hard back and well printed pages so does represent value for money.

Masha'Allah excellent, fast delivery and nicely packaged. apologies for the late review- missed it by accident! Thank you. The Tafsir Jalalyn is a brilliant interpretation of the Holy Quran line by line and very easy to understand and keep up with.

While great in theory the execution of this book for the Kindle format is flawed, the original Tafsir Al-Jalalayn is not what has been reproduced here, I wish it was because that is a great book. What you have here however is a poor translation attempt that is lacking basic formatting requirements. I suggest Quran Made Easy: Complete English Translation with Inline Commentary instead.
