 BismEm



"O ye who believe! Ask not of things which, if they were made unto you, would trouble you; but if you ask of them when the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be made known unto you.  Allah pardoneth this, for Allah is Forgiving, Clement."  5:101  Al-Maidah.

"A folk before you asked (for such disclosures) and then disbelieved therein."    5:102  Al-Maidah.



Salam everyone.

Alhumdulilah, as a special privilege to the people, The Almighty allowed the them to ask questions (probably about the unseen) during the process of the Revelation of the Noble Quran .. even though Allah Almighty makes it clear in V.5:101 that if the answers of certain questions are made known to the people it could be disturbing for them.  Undoubtedly this is very, very correct.    Then, in V.5:102 The Almighty mentions of some community who became disbelievers after getting the answers of certain questions they asked.  Of course, HE has decided not to specify who these people were.   But just asking, any idea to which community the reference might be?

Wa'salam Sister.   As you would know, since Allah has not confirmed therefore we cannot confirm either, except for possibilities as personal opinions.   According to A.A. Maududi's commentary of this Verse, the reference is probably to the Jews.  This could be true.  Though only Allah knows best, those Jewish tribes were in the habit of asking unnecessary questions for the sake of rebellious and untruthful arguments leading to illogical analysis, creating divisions.

Yes, while Allah knows best, I also think the allusion is to the Jews.   The Jews of Al-Medinah were in the habit of asking questions, often with the intention of harassing the Prophet (pbuh) as a "test" of Prophethood.  Those fools didn't realize that Muhammad (phuh) was chosen as Prophet and assigned the task of delivering the Divine Message by The Almighty.   The "test" by the Jews was too insignificant and could simply be flushed down the drain.  

According to the commentary of M.M. Pickthall, the Jews sent one of the senior members of their community to Makkah (before Hijrah) to ask some questions from the Prophet (pbuh) as a "test."   There were three questions.  One was to explain the incident of the people in the cave as narrated by The Almighty to inform the Prophet (pbuh) in Surah Kahf.   The other question was about Prophet Moses (pbuh) and the wise man also narrated by Allah Almighty in the same Surah.  And the third question was about the Spirit stated by The Almighty to the Prophet (pbuh) in Verse 17:85 of Surah Al-Isra.    This is only to show that asking questions with a challenging intent was a practice among the Jews.

Correctly observed sister.   I've also read this commentary of Pickthall.

Absolutely, spot on ..
