On Monday, Ramadan 3, 1443 A.H , Leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H), begins the Jalsa of Tafsirul Qur'an in his house in Abuja .

During the Jalsa, the Leader(H) reflects back on the history of his Tafsir, he stated that he started Tafsir to some brothers about 44 years ago , Hijira was 1399, up to the time he was released from the prison of Enugu where he continued from the point the Tafsir paused, after that the Tafsir still continued and was concluded in different places from Hamzet and the mosque of the University A.B.U located at Samaru.
He added , later on , the Tafsir remain still , until the time the Fudiyya Islamic Center located at Dan-Magaji Zaria was gotten where he started the Tafsirul Mubin of Sheikh Muhammad Jawad Mugniya , it was been conducted every Wednesday, during the period of Ramadan it use to be everyday up to the time the first Tafsir was concluded.
The leader (H) resume that after the conclusion of the first Tafsir , he begin with the second Tafsir where he started using two Tafsir ; Attubyan and Majma'ul Bayan of Sheikh Dusi and Sheikh Dabrasi (RH) respectively. He said most especially towards the end of the second Tafsir from Suratul Ankabut to the last part of the Qur'an , the Tafsir was lengthened by using the analysis from different narrations.
He further added that , after the conclusion of the second Tafsir, while he was about to start the third ,he Stated that " The main objective of this Tafsir is to Merge the Qur'an with the Progeny of the Messenger of Allah (S), because the Messenger (S) said he will live for us the thing that if we hold onto them , we will never go astray forever; Al-Qur'an and my Progeny."
He said " Messenger of Allah (S) has Merged this Al-Qur'an and his Progeny and they will never be separated until they meet him in the spring , that was why I said this time around we will try to see that we translate the Qur'an according to how it was reported they (Progeny of the Messager (S) ) translate it (the Qur'an). That was how I used different Tafasir .
Sheikh Zakzaky (H) continued by explaining on the third conclusion of the Tafsir until the time that the oppressive authorities of the country lunch a crackdown against him in the year 2015, where he said the last Tafsir that was conducted before the Waki'a was on Wednesday, Safar 27 , 1437 (9-12-2015).
He added that the last Tafsir before the Waki'a was paused at verse 169-170 in Chapter Ali-Imran where Allah Ta'ala Said :
وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتًا ۚ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ(169)
"And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision,"
فَرِحِينَ بِمَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَيَسْتَبْشِرُونَ بِالَّذِينَ لَمْ يَلْحَقُوا بِهِم مِّنْ خَلْفِهِمْ أَلَّا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ (170)
"Rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty, and they receive good tidings about those [to be martyred] after them who have not yet joined them - that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve."
Leader (H) said , we will continue from verse 171. He began by a quick touch on the verses 169-170 and continued with the Tafsir of the next verse in which all are talking on the scenario of the battle of Uhud.
Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky recited the verse:
:يَسْتَبْشِرُونَ بِنِعْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَفَضْلٍ وَأَنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (171)
"They wish to give glad tidings of Blessing and Virtue from Allah and that Allah will not waste the reward of the believers.
Abdul Majid."
He added , those faithfuls are :
اَلَّذِيۡنَ اسۡتَجَابُوۡا لِلّٰهِ وَالرَّسُوۡلِ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَاۤ اَصَابَهُمُ الۡقَرۡحُ ۛؕ لِلَّذِيۡنَ اَحۡسَنُوۡا مِنۡهُمۡ وَاتَّقَوۡا اَجۡرٌ عَظِيۡمٌ. (172)
"There were those who responded to the call of Allah and the Messenger122 after injury had smitten them123 - for all those who do good and fear Allah there is a mighty reward."
After the Leader (H) recited the analysis of the verses and their meanings and the reason for their revelation, he said he touched the previous Tafsir and if the Tafsir continue , the translation of the verses and narrations of the reports will be base on the reports that were gotten from the Ahlul Bayt (A.S) those that the Messenger of Allah (S) Merged with the Qur'an.
In the end , as his tradition in every begining of Ramadan Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky call the attention of the Muslim Clerics conducting Tafsir to shun away from unnecessary responses/castigations of one another and translating the Qur'an base on self interest.
Sheikh Zakzaky said : "We are saying that it's important the Al-Qur'an should be respected , if someone has his own opinion, like a political opinion or something , he is suppose to find some time and organize a lecture on that and tell people his opinion but not the time of the Tafsir of the Holy Qur'an."
He added that , during the Tafsir of the Holy Qur'an, there is no problem in making a pause and make some useful statements that are related to the Umma for them to here, like announcement of Salatul Janaza ,or request for prayers , or public announcements , or answering of questions, or something of that nature , but not inside the Tafsir. It's wrong to recite a verse and someone will directly begin with his opinion, he should fear Allah not to make the Qur'an a thing for play."
He said the meaning of Tafsir is to Convey what the speaker is saying and HE is Allah (T) , what does Allah means by making this statement? That is what you are saying during Tafsir. That is why even if it is someone that is talking, it will be unjust you translate it wrongly , not to talk of conveying what Allah says, you will be saying the words of Allah (T) and at the same time saying your opinion.
He brought the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah (S) that said : "Any one that translate the Qur'an ignorantly should wait for his destination in hell" and he also said : "Anyone that translate the Qur'an with his opinion he should wait for his destination in hell."
