Abstract

The knowledge of Tafsīr (exegesis, commentary, interpretation) is indeed the result of pondering over Qur’ānic verses by some great scholarly men often known as Mufassirīn (exegetes). The initial instances of Tafsīr can be traced back to the glorious era of Prophet (peace and mercy be upon him). Aḥkām ul Qur’ān or juristic exegesis (Tafsīr ul fiqhī) is one of the most important field of the research in Islamic Studies. Muslim jurists specially from sub-continent have produced a remarkable juristic exegesis in the field of Quranic Studies. This research covers briefly an overview of these works done by the Mufassirin of sub-continent in the field of Juristic exegesis.

JEL Classification: Exegesis, Commentary, Tafsīr ul fiqhī, Qur’ānic studies
