In the text, the meaning of âyat-i karimas are given as ma’âl, which means ‘meaning as reported by the scholars of tafsîr’; for, the meanings of âyat-i karimas were understood only by Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam), who, in his turn taught these meanings to his Sahâba. The scholars of tafsîr (science of interpretation of the Qur’ân al-kerîm) differentiated these hadîths from those made up by munâfiqs, mulhids and zindîqs, and, for those hadîth-i-sherifs they could not find, they themselves gave meanings to those âyats by following the (rules and principles of the) knowledge of tafsîr. What is understood by those people who are unlearned in the Islamic scientces, who speak Arabic but have no knowledge of tafsîr, is not called the tafsîr (interpretation) of the Qur’ân. That is why a hadîth sharîf says, ‘One who gives meanings to the Qur’ân al-kerîm according to his own understanding becomes a disbeliever.’
