The Jews had raised doubts regarding the issue of Abrogation in the Holy Qur’an. In this verse, Allah U addresses the believers and says to them:
﴾أَمْ تُرِيدُونَ أَنْ تَسْأَلُوا رَسُولَكُمْ كَمَا سُئِلَ مُوسَى مِنْ قَبْلُ﴿
“Or do you intend to ask your Messenger as Musa was asked before?”
Here, there is a marvellous point. The verb ‘Su-ila’ is in the passive voice (As Musa u was asked) instead of the active voice: (As the Jews had asked Musa). The subject (the Jews) had been left out, as Allah U did not want to compare the believers to the Jews who had done all that they did to Musa u. They had asked him to show them Allah U clearly after all the miracles that he had brought for them:
﴾وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَى تِسْعَ آيَاتٍ بَيِّنَاتٍ﴿
“And We had certainly given Musa nine evident signs” [Surah Al-Isra’: 101].
