History Of Al Quran: Interpretation and Meanings of Al Quran
The Quran has ignited a massive body of commentary and explication (tafsir), directed at describing the “significance of the Quranic verses, clarifying their import and discovering their meanings.”
Tafsir is among the earliest activities of Muslims. According to the Quran, Muhammad was the person who clarified the significance of poetry for Muslims. Other exegetes included a Companions of Muhammad, such as Abdullah ibn Umar, Abdullah ibn Abbas, Ali ibn Abi Talib and Ubayy Ibn Kab. Exegesis in these days was restricted to the explanation of facets of the history of its revelation the poetry and, sometimes, interpretation of a single verse. In case the poetry was a historic event, then occasionally a few traditions (hadith) of Muhammad were narrated to make its meaning clear.
Since the Quran is spoken in Arabic, lots of the later converts to Islam (largely non-Arabs) didn’t necessarily comprehend the Quranic Arabic, they didn’t capture allusions which were apparent to ancient Muslims fluent in Arabic, and they had been worried about reconciling apparent battle of topics from the Quran.
Commentators erudite in Arabic told the allusions, and perhaps most of all explained which Quranic verses were revealed early in Muhammad’s prophetic career, as being appropriate to the very earliest Muslim community, and which had been revealed later, canceling out or “abrogating” (nasikh) the earlier text (mansukh). Other scholars maintain that no abrogation has occurred in the Qur’an.
