tasfir
Explanation:
Tafsir (Arabic: تفسير, tafsīr, "interpretation") is the Arabic word for exegesis or commentary, usually of the Qur'an. It does not include esoteric or mystical interpretation, which are covered by the related word ta'wil. An author of tafsir is a mufassir (Arabic: مُفسر, mufassir, plural: مفسرون, mufassirūn).
