Tafseer as-Sa‘di (Arabic title Tayseer al-Kareem ar-Rahmaan fi Tafseer Kalaam al-Mannaan) is a contemporary commentary on the Qur’an that is well known in the Arab world. Drawing on the classical heritage of Qur’anic exegesis, Shaykh as-Sa‘di focuses on highlighting the meanings of verses in a concise yet eloquent and clear style that is accessible to both the well-versed scholar and the ordinary reader. He explains the meanings and rulings indicated by the text without unnecessary elaboration, references to stories and reports of dubious provenance, or introducing ideas that are not relevant to the meaning of the verses. He also avoids detailed discussion of grammar, except in rare instances where it may help to clarify the meaning. His style is to mention what he thinks is the correct interpretation, without referring to other views, except in cases where there is also strong evidence to support the other view.
