Title: The Lights of Revelation and the Secrets of Interpretation: Hizb One of the Commentary on the Qurʾan by al-Baydawi (SOFT COVER)
Author: Shaykh ʿAbd Allah b. ʿUmar b. Muhammad b. ʿAli al-Baydawi/ translated by Dr Gibril Fouad Haddad
ISBN: 978-0992633578
Publisher: Beacon Books (UK)

This single volume contains the Arabic edition, English translation and notes by Dr. Gibril Fouad Haddad of ʿAbd Allah b. ʿUmar b. Muhammad b. ʿAli al-Baydawi’s first juz of Anwar al-Tanzil wa-Asrar al-Taʾwil (The Lights of Reve­lation and the Se­crets of In­ter­preta­tion).
As a revised and improved version of al-Zamakhshari’s land­mark Tafsir al-Kashshaf, Anwar al-Tanzil con­tains the most con­cise analysis of the Qur­an­ic use of Ara­bic grammar and style to date and was viewed early on as a fore­most demon­stra­tion of the Qurʾan’s essential and structural inimitability (iʿjaz maʿnawi wa-lughawi) in Sunni lit­era­ture.
Anwar al-Tanzil is important and significant, because of its fame and influence. In Dr. Haddad’s own estimation, this work “became and remained for seven centuries the most studied of all Tafsirs,” and it is to be regarded as “the most important com­mentary on the Quran in the history of Islam.”
