Our Prophet's
"And you are truly ˹a man˺ of outstanding character"
[Surah Al-Qalam 68:4]
Being a Witness over Mankind is a Huge Responsibility
By: Shaikh Zafar Ul Hasan Al Madani

Ibn Masud (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

 Once we were sitting with the Prophet ﷺ and he asked me to recite something from the Qur’an. I was shocked to be honored with such a request. The Prophet ﷺ said:

 “Yes! I have been commanded by Allah .”

“Did Allah name me specifically?” Ibn Masud asked.

“Yes!”, said the Prophet ﷺ, “ He named you.”

So, Ibn Masud started reciting from Surah Nisa from the first verse:

“O mankind! fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah, through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer.”
Surah An-Nisa

and by the time he reached verse 41,

“So how [will it be] when We bring from every nation a witness and we bring you, [O Muhammad] against these [people] as a witness? That Day, those who disbelieved and disobeyed the Messenger will wish they could be covered by the earth. And they will not conceal from Allah a [single] statement.”
Surah An-Nisa

The Prophet ﷺ cried out: “ Qatt, qatt, qatt! (enough, enough, enough!)”

 Ibn Masud recalled: "When I stopped, I saw the Prophet ﷺ was weeping .”

There are many places in the Qur’an where we find verses similar to those in Torah:

“O Prophet, indeed We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner”
Surah Ahzab verse 45

These three qualities of the Prophet ﷺ, very much the same as mentioned in the Torah, are found in Qur’an, too, thus testifying that it is Prophet Mohammed ﷺ , whose arrival was foretold in Torah.
