Asbab al-nuzul, is an Arabic term meaning "occasions/circumstances of revelation", is a a secondary type of tafsir directed at establishing the context in which specific verses of the Qur'?n were revealed.
Knowledge about the asbab al-nuzul / reasons of revelation helps one to understand the circumstances in which a particular revelation occurred, which sheds light on its implications and gives guidance to the explanation (tafsir) and application of the ayah in question for other situations.
This is the translation of the great work 'Asbaab an-Nuzool' by the great Muslim scholar Ali ibn Ahmad an-Neesaboori,( Abu al-Hassan Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi an-Naisaburi.
