Tafsir al-Tabari is written by Persian scholar Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari (838–923). It’s original name was Jami al-bayan an tawilay al-Quran (meaning: "Collection of statements on the interpretation of verses of the Qur'an"). It is a Sunni tafsir. It was finished in the year 883.
It is the earliest major running commentary of the Quran to have survived in its original form. It is notable for its comprehensiveness and citation of multiple sources. Tabari has relied on narratives of prophet Muhammad (PBUH), including narrations and comments of sahabah and tabi'in where necessary. He supplies the chain of narrations for the reports included in the commentary, sometimes elaborating on the trustworthiness of narrators.
It is his second great work after "History of the Prophets and Kings" (Tarīkh al-Rusul wa'l-Muluk), also known as "Tarikh al-Tabari".
Tafsir Ibn Kathir’s original name was Tafsīr al-Quran al-aẓim. It was written by Ismail ibn Kathir (1300- 1373). He was a scholar, an expert on tafsir (Quranic exegesis) and faqīh (jurisprudence) as well as a historian. He was taught by Ibn Taymiyya and Al-Dhahabi.
Tafsir Ibn Kathir is considered to be a summarised version of earlier tafsir, Tafsir Al Tabari. It is a sunni tafsir. It explains Quranic verses with Hadith and sayings of the sahaba.
His other great works are Al-Bidaya wan nihaya ("The beginning and the end"), Al-Sira Al-Nabawiyya, about the life of Muhammad and Qisas Al-Anbiya ("Stories of the Prophets").
Tafsir Al Jalalayn is a classical Sunni tafsir of the Qur'an. It means "Tafsir of the two Jalals". It was first composed by Jalal ad-Din al-Maḥalli in 1459 and then completed by his student Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti in 1505.
Tafsir al-Jalalayn is one of the most significant tafsirs for the study of the Qur’an. It is also regarded as one of the most easily accessible works of Qur’anic exegesis because of its simple style and one volume length.
Tafsir Al Mazhari is a 13th-century (AH) tafsir of the Qur'an. It was written by Qadi Thanaullah Panipati. He named this tafsir after the name of his spiritual master, Mirza Mazhar Jan-e-Janan Dehlavi. This tafsir is very simple and clear. It is useful to get brief explanations of Qur'anic verses.
Ma'ariful Qur'an was written by Pakistani Sunni Islamic scholar Mufti Muhammad Shafi (1897–1976). It consists of eight volumes. In compiling this tafsir, he has taken help from other tafsirs – Tafsir Tabari, Tafsir Ibn Kathir etc. In this tafsir, he discussed contemporary issues in a logical manner.
