Is it ok to read tafseer of Maulana Maududi as many schools of thought say you should not .
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
is it ok to read tafseer of Maulana Maududi as many schools of thought say you should not .
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The tafseer of Maulana Maududi is universally recognized and respected as amongst the best tafseer done by a 20th century Islamic scholar; and if one is reading the translation of the Quran for the first time or one is a seasoned scholar studying the fineries of this Glorious Book of Guidance, Allah is our witness, the work done by Maulana Maududi would be of benefit to them!
May Allah Subhanah accept the works of Brother Maulana Maududi, bestow mercy on his soul, and bestow upon him his due reward. Ameen.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
