Did God not know the Exact Number?


Good question on Quranology Discussion today:
37:147 – And We sent him to [his people of] a hundred thousand or more.
Doesn’t God know know their exact number or what?

Excellent question! I would personally question the translation of miataun alf (so-called 100,000). I dont know abot mi’ah but alf for example is close to the word ‘ta’alluf’ which means to stick together.
