Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi

تفسير : (and when they appeal unto allah and his messenger to judge between them…) [24:48]. the commentators of the qur’an said: “this verse and the verse after it were revealed about bishr, the hypocrite, and his opponent, a jewish person, regarding their dispute over a piece of land. the jew kept dragging bishr to the messenger of allah, allah bless him and give him peace, in order that he judges between them while the hypocrite kept dragging the jew to ka‘b al-ashraf, saying: ‘muhammad will be unfair with us!’ ” this incident has already been mentioned upon dealing with the words of allah (… how they would go for judgment (in their dispute) to false deities…) in surah al-nisa’ [4:60].
