Why is it important?

One of the most prominent research results is that the unanimous statement on “what Allah swore by” is inaccurate. The narration attributed to Ibn Abbas is incorrect and is not evidence for a consensus saying or for outbalancing a saying of another in Tafsir. In addition, the context of the verse is controversial, and nothing in it supports the mentioned consensus.


he scientific value of the research extends from its scrutiny of the claim of consensus in Tafsir; it reveals an example of some earlier scholars transferring a consensus that was corrected by a later researcher.
