Introduction to Tafseer al-Sa`dee by Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

All praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad, his family, his companions and those who follow them upon righteousness till the Day of Judgment.

To proceed:

Verily, the Tafseer of our Sheikh `Abdul Rahmaan bin Naaser al-Sa`dee رحمه الله تعالى which is entitled “Tayseer Kareem al-Rahmaan fee Tafseer Kalaam al-Mannaan” is among the best Tafaaseer which has a lot of (distinct) features:

From it is: Easy (understandability) and clear phrases which - those grounded in knowledge as well as other than them - can understand.

And from it is: Avoiding redundancy, stuffing of words and lengthening (the topic) which has no benefit except wasting the time of the reader and confusing him.

And from it is: Avoidance of mentioning the different opinions except when the opposite view is strong and there is a necessity to mention it; and this is a very important feature in regards to the reader till his understanding becomes firm upon a matter.

And from it is: Treading the Manhaj (path) of al-Salaf (al-Saaleh) in explaining the verses about the (Names and) Attributes (of Allaah تعالى) without distortion or changing the meaning which opposes the meaning that Allaah تعالى intended. It is an excellent (book) which confirms the correct `Aqeedah.

And from it is: Accuracy in interpreting  that which the verses point to – along with mentioning the benefits in it as well as the rulings. This is clearly evident in some of the verses like the verse of Ablution in Surah al-Maaidah in which he mentioned fifty rulings regarding it as well as in the story of Dawood and Sulaimaan عليهم السلام in Surah Saad.

From it is: It is a book of Tafseer and a guidebook towards good manners as is evident in the Tafseer of the saying of Allaah تعالى in Surah al-A`raaf (7):199:

خُذِ الْعَفْوَ وَأْمُرْ بِالْعُرْفِ وَأَعْرِضْ عَنِ الْجَاهِلِينَ

{Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish}

For this, I refer to everyone who wants to acquire the books of Tafseer that their library should not be without this valuable  Tafseer.

I ask Allaah تعالى to rewards the author and make it beneficial for its reader for He is Kareemum Jawwaad wa sal-Allaahu `alaa Nabiyyinaa Muhammad wa `alaa aalihee wa as-haabihee wa man tabi`ahum bi ihsaan.
