Throughout the history of interpretation of the Holy Quran, each commentator has used a special method. Among the written interpretations in the contemporary era, the interpretation of Majid al-Bayan has been less studied by the researchers.
. In this regard, the methods used by Ayatollah Najafi Isfahani to interpret the Quranic verses in his book are inspected.
Due to the similarity between Majid al-Bayan's interpretation and Al-Safi's interpretation of Faiz Kashani and Najafi Esfahani's extensive use of Faiz Kashani's views, a comparison is also completed between the interpretation methods of "Al-Safi" and "Majdal Bayan fi Tafsir al-Qur'an".
The results indicate that the three methods of narrative, intellectual-Ijtihadi and literary are noticeable methods of this interpretation. The use of the narrative method in all interpretations is accompanied by the commentator's analysis; Therefore, it is not considered a purely narrative interpretation.
Compared to this interpretation, Safi's commentary has acted similar to each other in terms of the role of narrations in explaining the verses, the use of Shia sources, and the resolution of conflicting narrations; while Faiz is closer to a purely narrative interpretation.
