Dear Brother / Sister,
His name is Waraqa b. Nawfal. Waraqa b. Nawfal was a Christian scholar and a relative of Hz. Khadijah. When revelation started to come to the Messenger of Allah, Hz. Khadijah went to Waraqa to find out what was happening. Waraqa said to her,
“O Khadijah! Muhammad (pbuh) is an honest person. What he saw is what is necessary to be seen at the beginning of prophethood. The being that came to him is Jibril (Gabriel). He also went to Hz. Musa (Moses) and Hz. Isa (Jesus). He will be a prophet soon. If I live long enough to see those days, I will believe in him and support him.”
