The Four Questions were originally meant to be sample questions, but later they became integrated into the ritual. The Talmud relates that Abbaye was once present at a Seder with his teacher Rabbah. When the dish with Pesach foods was removed, Abbaye exclaimed: "We have not yet eaten. Why have they taken away the dish?" Rabbah replied: "You have exempted us from reciting  Mah nishtanah"  ( Pesachim  115b). From this incident we deduce that any relevant questions can serve as starting points.

What questions do you have about the Pesach story or ritual?
