Tafsīr (Arabic: تفسير‎)

Tafsīr (Arabic: تفسير‎, tafsīr, "interpretation") is the Arabic word for exegesis, usually of the Qur'an. Ta'wīl is a subset of tafsir and refers to assigning a specific meaning, often derived from inspiration or dreams, to some of the allegorical ayaat. An author of tafsir is a mufassir (Arabic: مُفسر‎, mufassir, plural: Arabic: مفسرون‎, mufassirūn).
