(And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say…) [10:15].
Mujahid said: “This verse was revealed about the idolaters of Mecca”. Muqatil said: “It is a question of five people: ‘Abd Allah ibn Umayyah al-Makhzumi, al-Walid ibn al-Mughirah, Mukraz ibn Hafs, ‘Amr ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn Abi Qays al-‘Amiri and al-‘Asi ibn ‘Amir. These people said to the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace: ‘Bring a Qur’an which does not enjoin leaving the worship of al-Lat and al-‘Uzza’ ”.
Al-Kalbi said: “This verse was revealed about the scoffers who said: ‘O Muhammad, bring another Qur’an which contains the questions we will put to you’ ”.
