MetadataShow full item record
Fakhr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (d.606/1210) is one of the few Muslim thinkers whose significance, reputation and influence on later generations in different fields of learning are acknowledged by both classical and modern scholars of Islamic studies, and a number of studies appeared on his works on jurisprudence, theology, and philosophy. Yet despite his being one of the most famous Qurʾānic commentators, al-Rāzī’s commentary has not attracted the due attention of scholars in the West. Tariq Jaffer’s work, though it is partially a collection of articles, is important for bringing al-Rāzī’s methodology of Qurʾānic interpretation and its application to the selected verses to the attention of the readers.
