    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1178/89=B)

     

    Maulana Maudoodi was not a degree holder Aalim, but he was a modern-educated and famous journalist and his writings were very sweet. He committed so many mistakes in Aqaaid, Tafseer, Hadith and Fiqh. Instead of following the Quran and Hadith he used to twist the Quran and Hadith in his favour. Neither was he authentic nor his Tafseer. Therefore, it should be avoided to read and listen his Tafseer. Instead, we should study any reliable tafseer like Maarif-ul-Quran etc.
