* تفسير Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi

{ أَيَحْسَبُ ٱلإِنسَانُ أَلَّن نَّجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ }

(Thinketh man that We shall not assemble his bones?) [75:3]. This verse was revealed about ‘Adiyy ibn Rabi‘ah. The latter went to the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, and said: “Tell me about the Day of Arising, when is it going to be? How is it going to be?” The Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, answered his questions. Then ‘Adiyy said: “If I were to see that Day with my own eyes, I would not accept what you say, O Muhammad, as true nor would I believe in you. Can Allah really assemble these bones?” And so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse.
