Since the publication in 1921 of Ignaz Goldziher's 'Die Richtungen der islamischen Koransauslegung', which includes a discussion of ImāmÄ« exegesis, no comprehensive work on this topic has appeared. In the intervening years, important ImāmÄ« commentaries on the Qur’ān have become available, making possible a reappraisal of the subject. The present study aims to contribute to this task, primarily by examining the features and methods of ImāmÄ« exegesis. Principally, it offers a description and analysis of the major tenets of ImāmÄ« doctrine, as reflected in the earliest ImāmÄ« works of exegesis and related sources, up to the Major Occultation of the twelfth Imam in 329/941. These include, among others, the belief in a primordial covenant between God and the ShÄ«‘a, and the superhuman and mystical qualities with which the Imams were graced, such as their God-given, infinite knowledge, their intercession on behalf of their community, their immunity from sin and error, etc. Other tenets relate to the attitude of ImāmÄ« ShÄ«‘ism to its enemies, e.g. the duty to denigrate and dissociate from them. These and similar ideas are constant motifs in ImāmÄ« exegesis, and are linked time and again with various Qur’ānic verses. Relying on classical and modern Arabic sources, SunnÄ« and ShÄ«‘Ä« alike, as well as on a wide range of western research, Meir Bar-Asher sheds new light on the ImāmÄ« methods of exegesis and on the principal ImāmÄ« doctrines as reflected in the early ImāmÄ« exegetical corpus.
