You were not there ˹O Prophet˺ on the western side of the mountain when We entrusted the Commandments to Moses, nor were you present ˹in his time˺.But We ˹later˺ raised ˹several˺ generations, and the ages took their toll on them. Nor were you living among the people of Midian, rehearsing Our revelations with them. But it is We Who have sent ˹this revelation to you˺.And you were not at the side of Mount Ṭûr when We called out ˹to Moses˺. But ˹you have been sent˺ as a mercy from your Lord to warn a people to whom no warner has come before you, so perhaps they may be mindful.Also so they would not say, if struck by an affliction for what their hands have done: “Our Lord! If only You had sent us a messenger, we would have followed Your revelations and become believers.”Quran 28:44~47

She said, “Indeed, my father invites you that he may reward you for having watered for us.”
So when he came to him and related to him the story, he said,
“Fear not. You have escaped from the wrongdoing people.”

وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلۡغَرۡبِیِّ إِذۡ قَضَیۡنَاۤ إِلَىٰ مُوسَى ٱلۡأَمۡرَ وَمَا كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلشَّـٰهِدِینَ

وَلَـٰكِنَّاۤ أَنشَأۡنَا قُرُونࣰا فَتَطَاوَلَ عَلَیۡهِمُ ٱلۡعُمُرُۚ وَمَا كُنتَ ثَاوِیࣰا فِیۤ أَهۡلِ مَدۡیَنَ تَتۡلُوا۟ عَلَیۡهِمۡ ءَایَـٰتِنَا وَلَـٰكِنَّا كُنَّا مُرۡسِلِینَ

وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلطُّورِ إِذۡ نَادَیۡنَا وَلَـٰكِن رَّحۡمَةࣰ مِّن رَّبِّكَ لِتُنذِرَ قَوۡمࣰا مَّاۤ أَتَىٰهُم مِّن نَّذِیرࣲ مِّن قَبۡلِكَ لَعَلَّهُمۡ یَتَذَكَّرُونَ

وَلَوۡلَاۤ أَن تُصِیبَهُم مُّصِیبَةُۢ بِمَا قَدَّمَتۡ أَیۡدِیهِمۡ فَیَقُولُوا۟ رَبَّنَا لَوۡلَاۤ أَرۡسَلۡتَ إِلَیۡنَا رَسُولࣰا فَنَتَّبِعَ ءَایَـٰتِكَ وَنَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِینَ
The basic theme of this Surah is the prophethood. Some aspects of the life of Prophet Moses -peace be upon him- are mentioned to show the similarity between him and Prophet Muhammad – peace be upon all the prophets of Allah. There are also answers here to the questions and doubts that were raised by some non-believers.
اور جب ہم نے موسٰی کی طرف حکم بھیجا تو تم (طور کی) غرب کی طرف نہیں تھے اور نہ اس واقعے کے دیکھنے والوں میں تھے
لیکن ہم نے (موسٰی کے بعد) کئی اُمتوں کو پیدا کیا پھر ان پر مدت طویل گذر گئی اور نہ تم مدین والوں میں رہنے والے تھے کہ ان کو ہماری آیتیں پڑھ پڑھ کر سناتے تھے۔ ہاں ہم ہی تو پیغمبر بھیجنے والے تھے
اور نہ تم اس وقت جب کہ ہم نے (موسٰی کو) آواز دی طور کے کنارے تھے 
بلکہ (تمہارا بھیجا جانا) تمہارے پروردگار کی رحمت ہے 
تاکہ تم اُن لوگوں کو جن کے پاس تم سے پہلے کوئی ہدایت کرنے والا نہیں آیا ہدایت کرو تاکہ وہ نصیحت پکڑیں 

اور (اے پیغمبر ہم نے تو کو اس لئے بھیجا ہے کہ) ایسا نہ ہو کہ اگر ان (اعمال) کے سبب جو اُن کے ہاتھ آگے بھیج چکے ہیں ان پر کوئی مصیبت واقع ہو تو یہ کہنے لگیں کہ اے پروردگار تو نے ہماری طرف کوئی پیغمبر کیوں نہ بھیجا کہ ہم تیری آیتوں کی پیروی کرنے اور ایمان لانے والوں میں ہوتے
