Exegetical approachEdit

One of the features of this commentary is lexicographical analysis and pondering on Quranic literature. The author also makes moderate use of theological methods. He advises the reader not to limit his understanding of Quran by making any pre-assumptions, either scientific or philosophical. Taleghani also emphasizes relying on hadith for understanding Mutashabihat (uncertainties).[2]
