Shia Tafsir/Translation for Quran?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salaam brothers and sisters, 

I have been looking for a Quran Tafsir & Translation by Shia scholars/sheikhs but so far haven't been successful...

Recently I've been working on the habit of reading more Quran. If anybody knows a good source for a good Tafsir as well as Translation written by a Shia scholar/sheikh, kindly link me up. And please refrain from commenting on how Shia/Sunni translations are the same because they are not i.e. I'm hoping to find material with the correct Shia perspective (or as close as possible) on Quranic verses in light of Ahlulbayt's teachings. 

Thank you very much in advance.

With this Multilingual Qur'an, the Arabic language is default, so for tafsir you can tic the box that says Pooya/M.A. Ali English Commentary. For English translations, there are three to choose from:
