Studying tafseer under an experienced and qualified Aalim

Q: Is it allowed for us the common people to teach others what we might have learnt from just reading Quran and it's translation or are we supposed to learn just what Ulama' teach us about Qur'an?

A: It is not correct for one to study the Qur'aan or the Tafseer of the Qur'aan independently. The Tafseer of the Qur'aan should be studied under the supervision of an experienced Aalim who has sound knowledge and understanding in the field of Tafseer.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
