Testimony of Hoyayy Ibn Akhtab on Prophet Muhammad

Hoyayy ibn Akhtab was a Jew, who knew that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) is the final prophet sent by God, but his jealousy made him arrogant and kept on fighting him till he died. Our Mother Safiyyah the daughter of Hoyayy, whom the Prophet (Peace be upon him) married her afterwards said:

“I was my father’s and my uncle’s favorite child. When the Messenger of Allah came to Madinah and stayed at Quba, my parents went to him at night and when they looked disconcerted and worn out. I received them cheerfully but to my surprise no one of them turned to me. They were so grieved that they did not feel my presence. I heard my uncle, Abu Yasir, saying to my father, ‘Is it really him (the final prophet) ?’ He said, ‘Yes, by Allah’. My uncle said: ‘Can you recognize him and confirm this?’ He said, ‘Yes’. My uncle said, ‘How do you feel towards him?’ He said, ‘By Allah I shall be his enemy as long as I live.'” (Ibn Hisham, As-Sirah an-Nabawiyyah)
