Allah عزوجل says in Qur’an:
“& when that book (Qur’an) came to them (Jews/یہودی) that would affirmate its near contemporary book (Torah),
& before that, they would intercede the same Prophet (Muhammad صل الله علیه وسلم) to get victory over the pagans,
& when he (Muhammad صل الله علیه وسکم) came to them, well recognized, they denied him (Muhammad صل الله علیه وسلم),
& curse of Allah عزوجل on negator [Al Qur’an 2:88]
Before the coming of Muhammad صل الله علیه وسلم & alightment of Qur’an, the Jews would pray to Allah عزوجل to fulfill their desires, in the intercession (وسیلہ) of Mohammad صل الله علیه وسلم. Thus the glory of Muhammad صل الله علیه وسلم was on its peak even before his coming to earth!
Thus intercession (or Waseela) is important in Islam for the fulfillment of desires. This verse of Qur’an proves that.
After the coming of Mohammad صل الله علیه وسلم, the priests of Jews thought that if Jews will accept Islam, their income will cease. Hence they started hiding the virtues of Mohammad صل الله علیه وسلم, which is a grave sin.
They manipulated the verses of Torah for their profit.
But it is also notable that verses of Qur’an can never be changed or manipulated, till the Day of Judgement, because Allah عزوجل himself took the responsibility of its protection.
Jews desired that the last last prophet would be from Bani Isra’el but when they saw that the last prophet was from Bani Isma’el, they became jealous & hence ultimately were expelled from Islam.
Any mistake on my part, may please be forgiven.
