Tafsir in the Non-Arab Muslim World – I: Editors' Introduction


The six articles in this issue of AJIS demonstrate the richness of resources in tafsīr al- Qur’ān produced outside the Arabic-speaking world. These articles provide a snapshot of the rapidly developing interest in this field of studies in Southeast Asia and Africa. Further exciting glimpses into non-Arab world research into Qur’ānic exegesis will be on display in the next issue of AJIS, focusing on scholarship from India, Iran, Turkey and central Caucasus.
