Tafsīr ahkaam ul_Qura’n is an excellent commentary of Abu Bakr ibn al-Arabi. Qadi ibn al-Arabi was the great scholar and master of Maliki Jurisprudence. The ahkaam ul_Qura’n is called jurisprudential commentaries. In these tafaseers, only those verses of the Qur’an which deal with jurisprudential issues are interpreted. Ahkaam ul-Qur’an is a comprehensive commentary of the Holy which is written in the Arabic language. Tafsīr Ahkaam ul-Qur’an has a great influence on the Maliki tafsiri literature because it was the first Tafsīri work by Maliki Jurisprudence after the Ahkaam ul-Qur’an by Imam Shafi’i. Ibn al-Arabi gives verses of the Holy Qur’an and then chapter names. Qadi ibn al-Arabi has adopted the old style of tafsir. He brings those verses in which jurisprudence problems were discussed. It is observed in Ahkaam-Qur’an that “Qadi ibn al-Arabi” is a great defender of Malki jurisprudence, but he brings the views of the other three schools of thought and rejects the verdict of other jurisprudence scholars. At many palaces, he brings the Hadiths with different asnad in the favored of Malki school of thought.
