The Prophet (s.a.w.) is "al-Mutawakkil" in the Torah
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
It is recorded, in Swahih al-Bukhari, that ‘Atha’ ibn Yasar (r.a.) narrated, “I came across ‘Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-A’asw and asked him to tell me about the description of Allah’s Messenger in the Torah. He said, ‘By Allah, he is indeed described in the Torah with some of the qualities attributed to him in the Qur’an.
It is said in the Torah that, ‘O Prophet! We have Sent you as a witness for Allah’s True religion, a giver of glad tidings to faithful believers, a warner to unbelievers and as a guardian of the illiterate. You are My slave and My Messenger. I have named you ‘al-Mutawakkil’. You are neither discourteous, harsh nor a noise-maker in public. You do not do evil to those who do evil to you, but you deal with them forgivingly and kindly. Allah will not let you die until, through you, He Straightens the crooked by making them admit that none has the right to be worshipped besides Allah; and through this which will blind eyes, deaf ears and hearts of stone be opened to the truth.’’” “al-Mutawakkil” means “the one who depends upon Allah”.
