Rationalist tendencies mean those individuals and groups who prefer reason over divine teachings and explain the Holy Quran on their own. Mostly, they do this type of fabrication through so-called reasoning, but sometimes they get influenced by Europe. The article highlights their rationalist approaches in Exegesis of the Holy Quran and how they opposed the majority of the Quran Commentators while making their own rules. This research work explores the historical background, basic rules, and methods of those rationalists, their disagreement with most of the conventional interpreters, and the impacts of their self-made foundations. Moreover, it presents a comparison of their invented rules and well-accepted rules of the Quran Explainers to a clear course of commentary for every Muslim reader. The summary contains how these rationalists plant rules to have their self-wished results and ignore authentic traditions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), deny different dialects of the holy Quran, refuse reasons of revelations, and explain Huroof e Muqataat as they deem fit.
