Hadith 9 from An-Nawawi
BismiLlah Al Rahman Al Rahim,
I heard the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) say:
“Avoid that which I forbid you to do and do that which I command you to do to the best of your capacity. Verily the people before you were destroyed only because of their excessive questioning and their disagreements with their Prophets.”
[Al-Bukhari & Muslim]
We refer to the story of the cow with Prophet Musa (Moses) (as) [: the people kept asking him questions concerning the cow]
“that which I command you to do”: that’s what we’re required to do. The best of our capacity. Because, “Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.” [Surat Al-Baqara, 2:286]
The Prophet (pbuh) would choose the easiest of two Halal options.
We can ask questions as long as it is of benefit.
