Tafheem ul Quran Urdu Tafseer:
The word tafheem means understanding. So, Tafheem ul Quran means the understanding of Holy Quran. In the preface of this Tafsir the author has made clarifications regarding the target audience of this text. According to him, the scholars and other learned people are not the target group. Rather the tafsir is written for common people who have only the basic knowledge of Islam. So, Tafheem by Maulana Maududi is easily understandable tafsir in Urdu.
The translation style of Holy Quran’s text is also different. Author has emphasized to use the “Ba Muhawra” translation. This style focuses on translation that conveys the best meaning. It is in contrast to the translation which is word by word. So, both the translation style and writing style of Tafseer is simple and effective. At certain places, there are some points which are contradicted by other notable scholars. But a general reader having the thirst for Islamic knowledge should not go behind the deficiencies.
