The trend of writing Qur’anic commentary by Muslim scholars in numerious languages has been a common and continuous process down the centuries. Qur’anic tafas┘r represent various schools and doctrines. Experts of the discipline have categorized tafsiri riwayat (reports based on indivisual judgements of mufassirun) into two major categories of authentic/accepted and unauthentic/not accepted. In a report attributed to Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him), Tafsir has been divided into four types of: (a) that the Arabs know by their language, (b) which no one can be excused from not knowing (i.e. mandatory to know), (c) which the scholars are aware of and (d) which none can know except for Allah. The present article provides an analytical study of the themes of ‘Ulum al-Qur’an found in Tafsr e- Namunah written by a group of Iranian scholars headed and supervised by Ayatullah Nasir Makarim Shirazi, all associated to the ithna ‘ashari shi’ah Islam. The commentary was first written in Persian and then translated to other languages including Urdu.
