وَإِذْ أَخَذَ ٱللَّهُ مِيثَاقَ ٱلنَّبِيِّيْنَ لَمَآ آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَىٰ ذٰلِكُمْ إِصْرِي قَالُوۤاْ أَقْرَرْنَا قَالَ فَٱشْهَدُواْ وَأَنَاْ مَعَكُمْ مِّنَ ٱلشَّاهِدِينَ

Al Qushairi Tafsir

And when God made a covenant with the prophets: “What I have given you of the Book and wisdom; then there shall come to you a messenger con- firming what is with you-you shall believe in him and you shall help him.” He said to them, “do you affirm? And do you take My load on you on that condition?” They said, “We affirm.” He said, “Then bear witness, and I shall be with you among the witnesses.”
God made a covenant regarding Muḥammad ﷺ, [that was] binding on all the [other] prophets (عليه السلام), just as He made a covenant with them to agree to His (سبحانه) lordship. This is the utmost honoring of the Messenger ﷺ since He connected [Muḥammad's] name with His own, and affirmed his worth just as He affirmed His own. So [Muḥammad] is singular in rank among all people and [God] has eased the way for all to know His majesty through the miracle that appeared to [Muḥammad].
