Based on the reference inscribed on it, a manuscript found in the National and University Library of Strasbourg published in Jordan under the name of "Al-Tafsir al-Kabir: Tafsir Al-Qur'an Al-Azim" has been attributed to the famous muhaddith Abu'l-Qasim Al-Tabarani (360/971). The manuscript in question is actually Hanafi faqih Abu Bakr Al-Haddad's (800/1398) well known and printed as "Tafsir Al-Haddad", tafsir named "Kashf al-tanzil fi tahqiq al-mabahith wa-al-ta'wil". The copy of the tafsir present in Strasbourg is one of the three existing copies used during the impression of Tafsir Al-Haddad. Consequently, the copy used for Haddad's tafsir and Tabarani's tafsir is the same.
