USUL UT-TAFSIR
THE PRINCIPLES OF HERMENEUTICS
[
The Following is taken from The Hanbali Text Society and is therefore according to the hanbali madhhab.
]
Introduction
It cannot be lost to anyone that it is important to understand revelation to know how to access themeanings of the revelation. Failure to do so will result in tampering with the text and making the
Qur’an an enemy to one who does
not understand it clearly with insight. The word tafsir, derivesfrom the word fassara, which entail
s the meaning of, ‘explaining,
elucidating, bringing out the
meaning of something.’ In a nutshell
, this is hermeneutics, [
Hermeneutics, in its’ linguistic sense in theEnglish language, is defined as, …interpretation, especially of Scripture… the Concise Oxford Dictionary, p.
467 
]
‘how we understand and interpret texts of revelation in cont
ext and without distorting themeanings that the Revealer of Revelation, Allah, has given to
us.’ Distortion of revelation
leads toDivine Judgement, as we have been told, Those who pervert the truth in Our Signs are not hiddenfrom Us. Is the one that will be thrown into the Fire better than or the one who will be safe on theDay of Resurrection? [Surat ul-Fussilat, ayah 40]And the unbelieve
rs say, ‘Why hasn’t the Qur’an been sent down all at once?’ We have sent it down
stage by stage so that we strengthen your heart with it and We brought it with gradual recitation.And they will not bring you any saying but We shall bring you the truth and better understanding.[Surat ul-Furqaan, ayaat 32-33]The Prophet Muhammad SAW proclaimed,
The Qur’an is either
a proof for you or against you.[
Collected in Sahih ul-Jaami` and classified as sahih. [Surat ul-
Israa’, ayah 105
-106]
]By giving a careful contemplation to this text, we can easily come to an understanding that we needto access the text in how it was meant to be understood.
