One who pursued the study of tafsīr was known as a mufassir: among the most famous are al-Ṭabarī, the historian (d. 929/310); al-Zama-khshārī (d. 1144/538); al-Baiḍāwī (d. 1286/685); and in more modern times, the Egyptian scholar Muḥammad ʿAbduh (1849–1905), whose commentary was edited by his follower Rashīd Riḍāʾ as Tafsīr al-Manār.
