One of the significant requisites in the field of research is the identification, correction and publication of the written heritage left from the ancients. In the absence of a properly corrected text, no judgement and assessment can be made about it. Dependence on incorrect and inconsistent texts can lead our investigations astray. Amongst the texts that have addressed the evaluation and analysis of the Islamic Holy Book, the Qur’anic commentaries are a valued legacy worthy of scholarly survey, the production of their critical publication being of immense necessity in Qur’anic scholarship.
One of such texts is Khwaja Mohammad Pārsā’s Tafsir-e Thamāniya, not yet published nor even a significant study about it has been undertaken. In this inquiry, we will examine this commentary and introduce its manuscripts.
