Assalamu 'alaykum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Is this class mainly about the principles of tafseer? or does it discuss the tafseer of different topics/themes mentioned in the Qur'an?

I'm in the process of developing the final 'class description' which will be posted on AlMaghrib website insha'Allah.
But meanwhile, take these topics to start with insha'Allah.

1- Brief history of tafseer and its different stages
2- Methodoligies of Tafseer
3- The concept of Thematic Tafseer
4- Methods of Thematic Tafseer
5- Orientalists and Tafsser
6- Review of some modern works on the subject
7- Select themes of study (related to wide variety of traditional subjects and modern issues). This part will be the largest part of the class.
And more insha'allahAs you see Shaykh's statement, THEMES are the focus
