Tafsir of the Holy Quraan
ALTAFSIR.COM is a completely free, non-profit website providing access to the largest and greatest online collection of Qur‚anic Commentary (tafsir or tafseer), translation, recitation and essential resources in the world.
It was begun in 2001 by the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought, Jordan. Today the website is fully operational in Arabic and English and provides the original Arabic texts of 110 or more books of Qur‚anic Commentary, Interpretation and Explanation (tafsir or tafseer), recitation (tajwid) tutorials and hadith collections, and other fields, pertaining to the study of Qur‚anic exegesis. Translations of the meanings of the Qur‚an are currently available in 18 different languages, and in several cases more than one translation is available. The site also includes audio Qur‚an recitations; resources on Qur‚an syntax; resources on the Contexts of Revelation; resources on the meanings of words found in the Qur‚an, and other works on the Qur‚anic sciences. It contains over a million pages of Qur‚anic Commentary and translation. Some of the texts presented here exist only as manuscripts and have never previously been published in book form despite their historical importance and influence. Altafsir.com is thus a complete website for the study of the Qur‚anic Sciences.
