al-Tafsir al-Muyassar Translation Index

al-Tafsir al-Muyassar is one of the contemporary books of tafsir written to fit in the margins of the Madinah Mushaf. It was written by a group of scholars under the direction of Sheikh Saalih Aal al-Sheikh, Minister of Islamic Affairs for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The book aims to provide a brief explanation or gloss of the ayah or ayaat at hand according to the understanding of the salaf. For more information about this work, see here.

Beginning in December 2019, we plan to translate and publish one new section of al-Tafsir al-Muyassar each month until we complete surah al-Baqarah. New sections will be published on the first Thursday or following Monday of each month. We have decided to split surah al-Baqarah into 34 sections, following the groupings used by Sheikh Faisal Aal Mubarak in his book of tafsir. These sections are typically ten ayaat or less and center around a shared meaning.
