Tafsir Imdad al-Karam is the first commentary (Tafsir) on the Holy Qur’an to have been written in the United Kingdom. The author has kept the issues and dilemmas faced by Muslims living in the West at the heart of this commentary thereby making it an ideal Tafsir for the 21st century and for Muslims and non-Muslims living in the West.
For a long time there was a dire need for a brief and concise Tafsir of the Holy Qur’an, presented in a simple and comprehensible manner. In Tafsir Imdad-ul-Karam, difficult issues have been written in very simple terms in order to make the last and final testament of Allah (most high) accessible to scholars as well as the general reader.
