“Ibn ‘Abbas said: “The Jews of Khaybar were fighting the tribe of Ghatfan. When they met in battle, the Jews were defeated so the Jews supplicated with this supplication: “Indeed we ask You by the right of the unlettered Prophet who You promised to send to us at the end of time, that you give us victory against them.” When they met (the tribe) of Ghatfan in battle again, they called out with this supplication and defeated them. When the Prophet was sent, they disbelieved in him, so Allah revealed: (Though before that they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieved -and when there came to them that which they know (to be the truth) they disbelieved therein. The curse of Allah is on disbelievers.) (AL-BAQARA: 89)”

(HAZIHI MAFAHIMUNA PAGE 28-29)

SHAYKH UL ISLAM IBN TAYMIYAH SAID IN HIS “TAWASSUL WAL WASEELAH :-
Allah says (although aforetime they had invoked Allah (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved,)[Al Baqarah:89] there is agreement between scholars of Tafseer and history that this verse came for Jews of Madeenah like Banu Qunaynah, Quraydhah and Nadhir,so how can someone say it came about Jews of Khaybar and Ghatfaan?(end quote from Shakh Salih)
(HAZIHI MAFAHIMUNA PAGE 28-29)
3) WHAT EXACTLY JEWS SAID ? :-
From abridged Commentary of Ibne Kathir it Says.Before this Messenger came to them, they used to ask Allah to aid them by his arrival, against their polytheistic enemies in war. They used to say to the polytheists, “A Prophet shall be sent just before the end of this world and we, along with him, shall exterminate you, just as the nations of `Ad and Iram were exterminated.” Also, Muhammad bin Ishaq narrated that Ibn `Abbas said, “The Jews used to invoke Allah (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over the Aws and Khazraj, before the Prophet was sent. When Allah sent him to the Arabs, they rejected him and denied what they used to say about him. Hence, Mu`adh bin Jabal and Bishr bin Al-Bara’ bin Ma`rur, from Bani Salamah, said to them, `O Jews! Fear Allah and embrace Islam. You used to invoke Allah for the coming of Muhammad(peace be upon him)when we were still disbelievers and you used to tell us that he would come and describe him to us,’ Salam bin Mushkim from Bani An-Nadir replied, `He did not bring anything that we recognize. He is not the Prophet we told you about.’ Allah then revealed this Ayah about their statement.(And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur’an) from Allah confirming what is with them (the Tawrah) and the Injil (Gospel).”’
ABU AL-ALIYAH SAID :-
“The Jews used to ask Allah to send Muhammad (Peace be upon him)so that they would gain victory over the Arab disbelievers. They used to say, `O Allah! Send the Prophet that we read about – in the Tawrah – so that we can torment and kill the disbelievers alongside him.’ When Allah sent Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and they saw that he was not one of them, they rejected him and envied the Arabs, even though they knew that he was the Messenger of Allah. Hence, Allah said,(Then when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved in it. So let the curse of Allah be on the disbelievers). ”(end)
