From the Tafsir of Ibn Juzayy Kitab at-tashil li ‘ulum at-tanzil
“The Sciences of Tafsir” is translated from Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi’s
Kitab at-Tashil li ‘Ulum at-Tanzil”.
“The author was born in 693 AH. His name was Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad,
called al-Qasim, ibn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi, i.e.
from the Arab tribe of Kalb, may Allah be pleased with him and make
him contented, and make the Garden his shelter. He was al-Gharnati
(from Granada in Andalusia, Spain) and thus European. Ibn Juzayy wrote
widely on all the sciences of his day: hadith, fiqh, Qur’anic recitations
and tafsir. He died fighting as a shaheed in the Battle of Tareef
in the year 741 AH.”
