* تفسير Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi

{ وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلاً مِّن قَبْلِكَ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ أَزْوَاجاً وَذُرِّيَّةً وَمَا كَانَ لِرَسُولٍ أَن يَأْتِيَ بِآيَةٍ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ لِكُلِّ أَجَلٍ كِتَابٌ }

(And verily We sent messengers (to mankind) before thee, and We appointed for them wives and offspring…) [13:38]. Said al-Kalbi: “The Jews insulted the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, saying: ‘This man has no aspiration except for women and marriage. If he was really a prophet, as he claims to be, the matter of prophethood would have preoccupied him from women’, and so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse”.
