The Tafheem ul Quran is a 6-volume translation and explanation of the Qur'an by Syed Abul Ala Maududi.
Syed Maududi spent 30 years writing his Tafseer; he began in 1942 and completed it in 1972.
The Tafhim ul Quran deals extensively with issues faced by the modern world in general and the Muslim community in particular.
The translation was first written in Urdu, but is now available in several languages.
The Tafheem differs from traditional exegeses in several ways. It is more than a traditional commentary on the scripture as it contains discussions and debates regarding economics, sociology, history, and politics. In his text, Syed Maududi highlights Quranic perspective and argues that Islam provides ample guidance in all spheres.
