Tafsir in the Non-Arab Muslim World – II: Editors’ Introduction


This is the second special issue of the Australian Journal of Islamic Studies that focuses on the topic of Qur’ānic exegesis or tafsīr al-Qur’ān in the non-Arab world. While the first special issue (Volume 6, Issue 4, 2021) mainly analysed Qur’ānic exegesis in Southeast Asia and Africa, this second issue extends its focus from Western Islamic lands to the Eastern parts (Ottoman to the Indian subcontinent), particularly Qur’ānic exegesis in Persian and its reception west of Iran, tafsīr in the Ottoman and Turkish Republic periods, Azerbaijani Qur’ān commentaries, and tafsīr in the Indian subcontinent.
