    I may be mistaken, but doesn't the bible say something to the effect that all will be revealed? All that is asked will be revealed/answered?
    I believe more-so that latter than the former. God will answer our questions, but not show us things without demonstrating an interest.

    What would be the purpose of providing information to uninterested parties.

    Given time and experience it might be said people improve with age, however, are we not the same person as before? Wisdom accumulates over time, but the past and present exist as it is, although we influence the future, whatever is will always be.

    I'd say it is definitely along the lines of what many want to hear.

    Beyond good marketing practice and fulfilling the need to keep the majority of john q. public toeing the line.

    I have no clue as to its likelihood.

    Yep, me either. What questions will you ask God?

    Not something I am preparing for.

    I don't think anyone can prepare to meet God face to face...hmm If I had such a question by the time of my demise?

    I certainly don't believe I can fully prepare to "meet Allah face to face" and although I believe many truths about my life will be shown to me (I believe the experience of death itself will reveal much) I have no idea how much will be shown or known or if other things will come to light.

    At the moment of being in the direct Presence of Allah on the Day of Resurrection I think maybe we won't be able to ask any questions - in that moment at least. I'm not sure about it, but the following verse has made me think the time for questioning may be now ?

    But I have no real certainty about it or if that is the proper understanding & application of the verse.

    Qur'an 21:23 says "He is not to be questioned about what He does, but they will be questioned"

    Seems like a command. But they will be questioned presumably by Allah?

    Yes - presumably - however there are to be Questioning Angels as well.

    I think I would have to ask where I could change my pants.
