Ala-Maududi

(73:15) Surely[15] We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness over you,[16] just as We had sent a Messenger to Pharaoh.


15. The address now turns to the disbelievers of Makkah, who were denying the Prophet (peace be upon him) and persecuting him relentlessly.

16. Sending the Prophet (peace be upon him) to be a witness over the people also means that he should testify to the truth by his word and deed before them in the world and also that in the Hereafter when Allah’s court is established, he will testify that he had presented the whole truth before the people in the world. (For further explanation, see ( E.N. 144 of Surah Al-Baqarah); (E.N. 64 of Surah An-Nisa); (Surah An-Nahl, Ayats 84, 89); (E.N. 82 of Surah Al-Azab); (E.N. 14 of Surah Al-Fath).
