Origin and Historical Evolution of Juristic Exegesis in the Sub-Continent: An Academic Review
The creation of Tafsir (exegesis, commentary, interpretation) is indeed the outcome of contemplation of the Qur’anic verses by great scholars often known as MufassirÊn (exegetes). The initial instances of Tafsir can be traced back to the glorious era of Prophet (peace and mercy be upon him) and consequently Aḥkam ul Qur’an or juristic exegesis (Tafsir al fiqhi) is becoming one of the most important field of the research in Islamic Studies. Muslim jurists especially from the sub-continent have produced remarkable juristic exegesis in the field of Quranic Studies. The purpose of this research is to cover briefly the contributions of Mufassirin in the sub-continent in the field of Juristic implementation of the Holy Qur’an.
