The Tarjomat al-khavāss, a Qor’anic commentary by Ali b. Hasan of Rey, was corrected by Mansoor Pahlavan and published in 1394 Sh./ 2015. The present article intends to make a critical study of the above-mentioned edition using a descriptive-analytical methodology. The findings of this study indicate that there are differences between the emended text and the primary MS (noskhe-ye asās) as well as other MSS of the Tarjomat al-khavāss, in terms ofomissions, additions, miswriting, shifting the positions of words, and changes in the construction of sentences. However, the editor has avoided addressing these many differences. He has often, based on informed guess, preferred his own choice of a variant. Therefore, his edition cannot be considered a critical amendment substantiated by necessary criteria. Contrary to the editor’s conviction, his method of emendation is not to be regarded as being based on primary MSS.
