ABDUL, Musa Oladipupo Ajilogba, “Te Qur’an: abarsi’s Commentary: His Approach to Teological Issues,” McGill Universi ty: Montreal, Quebec, Canada, 1970 1 The thesis evaluates tafsir   of al-Tabarsi (d. 1153), entitled  Majma ‘al-Bayan , published in Iran by a Shi’i scholar of twelfth century. The tafsir   was labeled as the plagiarized version of al-Kashshaf   that is why the researcher has compared commentaries of al-Tabarsi and al-Zamakhshari (d. 1144) in one of the sections of the thesis. The work is mainly based on Tabarsi’s approach to three theological issues—beautific vision, imamate of Ali bin Abi Talib (d. 661) and mortal sin. While discussing Tabarsi’s stand on mortal sin the researcher quotes ‘forgiveness of sins in Tabarsi’s opinion is that God will forgive all sins, except polytheism, without the pre-condition of repentance as insisted upon by the Mutazilites.’  2. AHMAD, Abd El-Gadir Muhammad, “Some Aspects of the Tafsir   of Mujahid,” University of Edinburg: Edinburgh, Scotland, 1993 The work examines the tafsir   of Abu al-Hajjaj Mujahid (d. 1113), under eight specified categories. The researcher has discussed various theological, legal issues and linguistic aspects in Mujahid’s tafsir    viz, disconnected letters ( muqattat  ), visibility of God in the light of following verses of the Qur’an—(Q. 75: 22–23; Q. 6: 103; Q. 10: 26; Q. 50: 35; Q. 83: 15), maqame mahmud   in the light of (Q. 17: 79) and adultery/fornication, iddah  of divorcee/widow/ umm walad  .  3. AHMAD, Rashid, “ Tafsir   in Su󿬁 Literature, with Particular Reference to Abu al-Qasim Quashairi,” University of Cambridge: Cambridge, England, 1968 2 I The Qur’an Commentaries and Commentators: Classical  Te Qur’an Commentaries and Commentators: Classical  7 The thesis is a study of Razi’s (d. 1210)  Mafatih al-Ghayb  (The Keys to the Unseen). The researcher states: ‘this commentary of the Qur’an cannot be taken in isolation from his other writings, but the spotlight will be explicitly on the tafsir  .’ The work studies: objects of creation, creative act, creator, proofs from creation to Gods existence, purpose of creation and second creation/the resurrection. While concluding the researcher states: ‘Razi considers creation, not only in its own right, but as leading to belief in the resurrection on the last day… just as God created us in the first place, so can He restore us to life, as a new creation.’  23. FUDGE, Bruce Gordon, “Te Major Qur’an Commentary of al-abrisi (d. 548/1153),” Harvard University: Cambridge, Massachusetts, 2003 9 The thesis examines  Majma al-Bayan fi Ulum al-Qur’an of al-Tabrisi (d. 1153). The researcher has focused on structure and method of this tafsir  . He has examined the bio-bibliographical sources on al-Tabrisi, explored the concept of the nature of language prevailing in medieval Muslim scholarship, elusiveness of knowledge and reasoning in afsir al-abrisi . Lastly, he highlights the Qur’anic narrative of Surah Yusuf   in his tafsir  .  24. GODLAS, Alan A., “Te  Ara’is al-Bayan : Te Mystical Qur’anic Exegesis of Ruzbihan al-Baqli,” University of California: Oakland, California, 1991 25. GWYNNE, Rosalind Ward, “Te Tafsir   of Abu Ali al-Jubbai: First Steps owards a Reconstruction, with exts, ranslation, Biographical Introduction and Analytical Essay,” University of Washington: Seattle, Washington, 1982 The thesis is based on the lost tafsir   of Abu Ali al-Jubba’i (d. 915) a Mu’tazilte theologian. The researcher has studied the Arabic text of his tafsir   and its translation of the text of his tafsir  . He states: ‘this dissertation is a partial reconstruction and translation of the lost Qur’anic exegesis of al-Jubba’i… [he has analysed] the tafsir   according to some twenty-three exegetical devices, in which special attention is paid to the logic employed in defending the Mu’tazilite interpretation of the meaning of Divine revelation.’  16  54. AB RAHMAN, Asyraf Hj., “Te Concept of Social Justice as Found in Sayyid Qutb’s Fi Zilal al-Qur’an ,” University of Edinburg: Edinburgh, Scotland, 2000 The thesis examines the concept of social justice in Syed Qutbs (d. 1966) Fi Zilal al-Qur’an . The researcher has divided the work in five sections—Qutb’s life and career, his literary study of Qur’an prior to Fi Zilal al-Qur’an , features of Fi Zilal al-Qur’an  and his approach to Qur’anic commentaries, doctrinal bases of social justice and finally its practical dimensions. In the concluding remarks the researcher states: ‘looking to over all discussion of Zilal   and Qutb’s efforts in describing the foundations that Muslims have to follow in realizing social justice, we find that Qutb did not perceive militancy as the only means of achieving his ideas… rather Qutb preferred to employ an educational approach to human conscience holding that as the best way of bringing people back to the manhaj  of God.’  55. ABDULKADIR, Abubakar Sadiq, “An Analytical and Comparative Study of Jews in the Qur’an in wo West African Tafsir  s,” University of Johannesburg, 2015 [ * ]  56. AHMAD, Nadzrah, “Methodology and Issues within Tafsir al-Qur’an al-Karim  by Abdul Halim Hasan et al  ., An Analytical Study,” International Islamic University, Malaysia: Gombak, Selangor, Malaysia, 2014 The thesis is based on the commentaries of the early 20 th  century Sumatran Malay exegetes, Abdul Halim Hasan (d. 1969), Zainal Arifin Abbas and Abdul Rahim Haitami. The researcher argues that the tafsir II The Qur’an Commentaries and Commentators: Modern   Academic Research on the Quran: A Critical Bibliography  30 translating words with Islamic concepts, near-synonyms and multiple senses can be overcome. Despite the difference between Arabic and English as two remote languages and cultures, there is a scope for translation to convey approximately the overall Qur’anic message and reflect the meanings as faithful as human power can afford.’  98. EWEIDA, Sara, “Te Realization of ime Metaphors and the Cultural Implications: An Analysis of the Qur’an and English Qur’anic ranslations,” Stockholm University, 2006 [ * ]  99. HASSEN, Rim, “English ranslations of the Qur’an by Women: Different or Derived?,” University of Warwick: Coventry, England, 2012 The thesis is a study of four English translations of the Qur’an by Women: Umm Muhammad (1995), Camille Adams Helminski (1999), Taheereh Saffarzadeh (2006) and Laleh Bakhtiar (2007). In order to determine gender hierarchies in their renditions, the researcher has investigated the role of paratexts, the extent of intervention in the sacred text, linguistic choices and interpretation of gender related terms. He has adopted a critical and comparative analysis of these with Arabic text and other English translations of the Qur’an by men. The study reveals that there is deep divide between translations produced by Women translators living in Muslim majority countries and those living in the United States.  100. HERRAG, El-Hassane, “Te Ideological Factor in the ranslation of Sensitive Issues from the Qur’an into English, Spanish and Catalan,” Universitat Autonoma De Barcelona: Bellaterra, Spain, 2012 The study is divided into various chapters including theoretical approaches, preliminary study of selected translations and analysis of some Qur’anic sensitive issues. The researcher has investigated Qur’anic sensitive issues: Hijab , divorce, polygamy, temporary marriage, fragments from the story of Maryam, Joseph, and Jesus, translating war issues fighting norms in the battle field and Surah al-Fatiha  in the Qur’an translations of Spanish, Catalan and English renderings of J. M. Rodwell (1861), A. J. Arberry (1955), Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali & Muhammad Muhsin Khan (1977) and N. J. Dawood (1956).  48  166. ABBOUD, Hosn, “Mary, Mother of Jesus and the Qur’anic ext: A Feminist Literary Study,” University of oronto: oronto, Ontario, Canada, 2006 28 The thesis has investigated the portrayal of Maryam in the Qur’an from a feminist literary perspective. The researcher has divided the thesis into different sections dealing with textual politics, stylistics, narratives and has focused on the main surahs that contain the story of Maryam. The researcher argues that the scholars have contributed to gender issues and Qur’anic studies in the context of woman’s legal rights, however, none has devoted a literary study to the Qur’anic woman figure. Feminist literary theory attempts to break new grounds for Qur’anic Studies and gender issues based on which the fundamentality of the feminine is subjected to the questions/questioned.  167. ABDULAZIZ, A., “Female and Muslim: A Study of Identity in the Qur’an,” University of Birmingham: Birmingham, West Midlands, 1994 The study has examined Muslim woman’s identity within the moral context. The researcher has focused on the notion of equality in the Qur’an, the notion of a guardian ( Qawwam ), and the veil ( Hijab ). He has adopted the philosophical method by using some of Sartre’s (d. 1980) notions from the latter’s Being and Nothingness .  168.
