There are many kinds of questions in the Qur'an. This paper is about how questions are clearly described to show the connectivity of the components of the Quranic texts. Questions found in the stories of Qur'an are understood using contextual frameworks. The speech act theory is employed through content analysis. The result shows that questions in the Qur'an function as question words, to inquire about something of understanding the past and the future. Specifically, the questions are used to ask about the time, place, number, circumstances, case dubious and uncertain. Question words in its original meaning come out to another meaning and can be seen through the sentence structure. The function of questions is not as a question word anymore. Therefore, the sentences are not interpreted as interrogative sentences.
