Best tafsir in Quran
Al-Bahr al-Muhit is the best Tafsir in Quran by Abu Hayyan al-Gharnati Al- Ash’ari. It is an etymological explanation on QURAN primarily from standpoint of rhetoric and Arabic grammar.

Which began on December 22nd 609 CE. At that, the Prophet Muhammad achieved forty years of age and concluding in 632 at that time he took Purdah from the world.
Prophet’s responsibilities in Tafsir verses
The illustrations of Tafsir can be transferred to the Prophet. As it is known to the world that according to the Islamic belief and their followers. Quran was exposed to him. He narrated all the cantos, explained their meanings, and taught them. As it was one of the duties of the Prophet Muhammad. After the Purdah of Prophet Muhammad, the Sahabah (companions) took the responsibilities of their shoulders of the task of interpretation. Thus, that was the era of starting of the new age of Tafsir. Abu Bakr one of the Sahabah narrated comments by Muhammad S.A.W. At the initial stages, Tafsir was selective and brief concerning its handling. And only some of the verses and phrases were explained and made understand by then.
