We take from the Quran, we do not impose on it.
In this great work, the main aim of the compiler is, returning to the Quran and an exegesist of the Quran with the Quran, so we take from the Quran and don't impose on it. In the preface of this rare work, the illustrious compiler was troubled and suffered because of the vices in the field of exegesis which caused disagreement and branching, and this shows its face in the exegesis, till where the exegesis, and in conclusion, the Quranic contexts, in stead of kindling knowledge and divine revelation and becoming a pioneer, it receives inspiration and is considered a follower. In this way, many of the present and existing exegesists who and distinguishes the method of the exegesis with his own view and opinion and not the meaning of the versa who designates the opinion of the exegesis and con firms or charges it with error.
With the method choice of acceding the Quran with the Quran itself, the esteemed author makes precision of the words and compound of the Quran just like a solicitor who with precision in the text and compound of a law or dossier find a truth that normal people are completely unaware of or unprofaned by.
