Sheikh Muhammad Ali al-Sabuni, a contemporary Mufassir

No Comments
I have on the shelf to the right of me the second volume of a tafsir by Sheikh al-Sabuni on the the legal rulings derived from the Quran, the sheikh as far as i am aware is from Syria, and currently teaches in Makkah. He has other works on tafsir, the most well known being his ‘Safwat al-Tafasir‘ in 3 volumes (if i recall correctly). I came across a copy of this work in a Slough bookshop, I asked the price to be told it was 90 pounds! not surprisingly i declined this offer, the lady then went down to 45 pounds.
Getting back to Sheikh al-Sabuni, from what I have heard, he is a murid of Sheikh Mahmud Effendi in Istanbul, and spends some months of the year in Turkey. May Allah (Most High) facilitate meeting him and sitting in his company to draw from the baraka of the years he has spent studying the Quran. Amin
