الاستفتاء

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmathullahi Wa Barakathuhu!
Kindly let me know had any Mufassir of Qur’an mentioned that it was lion (not dog)that was present with Ashab e Kahf of Sura Kahf of Al Qur’an?

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND THE MOST MERCIFUL
Questioner if wishes to understand a Shar’i ruling about any commandment of Sharia, he should submit a question pertaining to it and get it clarified rather than asking about unnecessary and common matters and waste his valuable time and the time of religious scholars. (Muftis). By the way, as regards the dog of Ashaab e Kahaf, the majority of the Mufassirin (مفسرین) are of the view that it was from the genus of dogs while Ibnu Juraij is of the view that it was lion, however the view of the majority is upheld.

Allah knows best.
