    Title: who can read tafseer of Quran

    Question: Many people say that the holy Quran will only benefit muttaqi [pious] people as it is mentioned in starting of Surah al-Baqarah that this book is for muttaqi people. How to know when we are muttaqi so that we can read the tafseer of Quran. I mean what is the criteria for becoming a muttaqi person. Nowadays mostly the people of tabligh say that only Muttaqi people can avail benefit of reading Tafseer. Is this right?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1690/1329/B=1433) The meaning of [هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ] is not what you understood. The holy Quran is a complete guidance and beneficial for those who want to become Muttaqi [pious]. Get yourself busy in good deeds and keep on it doing with full sincerity and save yourself from all the forbidden things. Then it shall bring the fear of Allah in your heart and the fear of Allah shall increase in you.
