This Volume is the translation of the first half of Arabic Volume 8 which covers the tafsir of Surat al-A’raf (Chapter 7) from verses 1-93.
The first discussion of this volume is about Satan (Iblis), his actions and the objections he raised claiming his superiority over Adam.
The problem of sa’adah and shaqawah (felicity and misery) is discussed in the light of the Qur’an and the tradition, and this has been studied and analysed in an elaborate manner. The meaning of A’raf (the heights) in the Qur’an is also discussed, and after that in the context of the verse, “He sat on the Throne”, the 54th verse of the Surat al-A’raf, there is an analysis of the term ‘arsh (the Throne) and its referent is determined in the light of the Qur’an and the tradition.
