Summary of Major topics:

This is a Tafseer of the 30th juz of the Qur'an; i.e., surahs 78-114.


Comments:

(added 2/7/02)

This is a very good summarized tafseer of the 30th juz. The methodology of tafseer by the Imam Ibn Kathir is the best; explanation of the Quran by the Quran, by the Sunnah, and by the statements of the companions and their students. He rarely differs from this approach and his tafseer is considered one of the best and most useful of all the tafseer. This particular translation and summary is kind of short though, and you may want to see if you can find a "less abridged" (i.e. longer) translation of the tafseer of the 30th juz by Imam Ibn Kathir because it contains much more information.
