Qatadah said, “A group of Jews came to the Prophet صلى ألله عليه و سلم and said,“Describe to us your Lord, for He has revealed His description in the Torah. Tell us, What is He made of? To which species does He belong? Is He made of gold, copper or silver? Does He eat and drink? Who did He inherit this world from? To whom will He bequeath it?” And so Allah, gloried and exalted is He, revealed this Surah.” – Al-Wahidi, Asbab un-Nuzul
Ubayy ibn Ka’b related that the idolaters said to the Messenger of Allah صلى ألله عليه و سلم “What is the lineage of your Lord?” And so Allah, exalted is He, revealed “Qul Hu Allahu Ahad” – Al-Wahidi, Asbab un-Nuzul
Jabir said, “The Prophet صلى ألله عليه و سلم was asked: “O Messenger of Allah, tell us about the lineage of your Lord!” And so this Surah (“Qul Hu Allahu Ahad”) was revealed.” – Al-Wahidi, Asbab un-Nuzul
