Summary/Abstract: This study critically evaluate the article written on the Qur'an's first printed Turkish translation and interpretation, namely Mehmed Efendi’s Tarjama-i Tibyân, Tefsîr-i Tibyan, Tarjama-i Tefsîri Tibyân. For this purpose, the study evaluates the above mentioned article in terms of content, style, use of scientific sources and references. Since the article is published in a scientific peerreviewed journal, the author is expected to be attentive in all these points and to comply with the ethical requirements. In addition, the evaluation concludes that, as the author strongly indicated, Mehmed Efendi’s work is not the translation of the work by Hıdr al-Azdî, namely alTibyan fî Tafsir al-Qur'an. But to interpret Tarjama-i Tibyân as "Translation of Explanations" is misleading, instead the use of "Translation and Interpretation of the Qur’an" would be more accurate understanding and interpretation.
