Tafsir Furat Kufi (9th and 10th centuries A.D.) is an exegesis of the Quran by Furat Ibn Furat Ibn Ibrahim al-Kufi and is one of the oldest Shia Quranic commentaries. It is the authors most famous book and is a tradition-based commentary (Hadith). The traditions used in this book are mainly narrated either by disciples of Muhammad al-Baqir, Jafar al-Sadiq or Ali, such as Abd Allah ibn Abbas, Mujahid and Asbagh Ibn Nubata, although there are some that relate to one of Muhammads companions. Tafsir Furat Kufi is similar in that it is selective in giving commentary on Quranic verses to Tafsir Ayyashi and Tafsir Qomi. However, Tafsir Furat Kufi has a Shia Islam perspective, unlike the two Tafsirs listed, and focuses only on verses that contain Shia allusions. An Imami exegesis in all respects can be named Tafsir Furat Kufi. Many Shia scholars[of later generations] have extensively quoted it. Majlisi, for instance, counts Tafsir Furat Kufi among the most important sources for his composition in his introduction to Bihar al-Anwar. Many of Tafsir Furat Kufis old manuscripts can be found in Iran and Iraq.
