Asbaab-e-Nuzool (Reasons of Revelation) provide information about the revelation of various Verses or Surahs of the Glorious Qur’aan.
Great Scholars Like Imam Bukhari, Imam Wahidi, Imam Suyuti and Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani rahmatullah alayhim have tried and developed a methodology for categorizing the Asbaab-e-Nuzool (Reasons of Revelation.)
Imam Wahidi said: ‘The tafsir is not possible unless one knows the story behind it, as well as the description of it’s revelation.’
This book, which belongs to the classic literature of Islam, is an outstanding compilation of traditions narrating the circumstances under which revelation was sent down.
