Quran Quote  : 

اِذَا جَآءَ نَصۡرُ اللّٰهِ وَالۡفَتۡحُۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1. When the help of Allah and victory comes(1)

Another name for this Surah is Surah Al-Fatah (The Victory) and Surah Wida (The Farewell), because in it is hinted of the worldly demise of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم (Tafseer Azizi). This Surah was revealed before the Conquest of Makkah. Some scholars have said that this Surah was revealed on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage, but the first view is more accurate (Tafseer Roohul Mu'ani). Two. years after the revelation of this Surah, the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم departed from this mundane world (Tafseer Khazin and Madarik)

1. By "help" is meant the help of Allah Almighty, whether by means of the angels or through the aid of the Muslim fighters. And by "victory" is meant the Conquest of Makkah, which would become the means of other victories as well as, acceptance of Islam by the people of Arabia in general. Although the Conquest of Makkah was to be an event in the future, it was a certainty. The verb "will come” is used in the past tense.

Surah Name : An-Nasr   Surah Number : 110   Ayat Number: 1
Topic : Victory From Allah

وَرَاَيۡتَ النَّاسَ يَدۡخُلُوۡنَ فِىۡ دِيۡنِ اللّٰهِ اَفۡوَاجًاۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾

2.And you see people entering the Religion of Allah in troops (2).

2. From it, three issues emerge:

1. That the number of the Noble Companions is not just five or seven, but thousands as Allah Almighty has described them as an "army".

2. The faith of those at the time of the Conquest of Makkah and thereafter, was accepted. In it, Abu Sufyaan, Amir Muawiyah, Hazrat Wahshi etc. are all included. All of them were of proper faith, as Allah Almighty has testified about their acceptance of faith.

3. These people remained firm on faith, even afterwards, because their acceptance of Religion is proven from this verse; while there is no proof from any source that they had renegaded from Islam. Furthermore, had these people been destined to become apostates, then Allah Almighty would not have described their faith in such glowing terms. From it, those Rafzis should take a lesson that say that besides five companions, the others all accepted Islam out of expediency and all became apostates after the worldly demise of the Holy Prophet

It should be remembered that the number of the Noble Companions is one hundred and twenty-four thousand (124, 000). The Companions of Badr are three hundred and thirteen and the Khulafa-e-Rashideen are four, just like the number of Prophets, the Messengers and the apostles. Also, immediately after the conquest of Makkah, you will see that the people of e Makkah will come to you from all directions to enter the Religion of Islam in troops. Prior to this, only one or two persons were accepting Islam.

Thus, after the Conquest of Makkah Bani Asad, Bani Fazara, Bani Murra, Bani Kanana, Bani Bilal, Bani Tameem, the tribe of Abul Qais, people of Bani Tay, people from Yemen, Syria, Taif and all the people of Makkah came in large numbers and accepted Islam.

From it, emerge a few issues:

1. Information of the unseen is given in this Surah, which reached fruition.

2. The Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم Hath full knowledge about his blessed life, that it will not end before seeing the Conquest of Makkah and other such incidents. That is why the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم did not perform pilgrimage in the first year after the Conquest of Makkah, as he was absolutely certain about his life span.

3. The most virtuous thing in the period of the Holy Prophetصلى الله عليه وآله وسلم was that people could present themselves to the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم to accept Islam.

Surah Name : An-Nasr   Surah Number : 110   Ayat Number: 2
Topic : Accept Islam

 فَسَبِّحۡ بِحَمۡدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسۡتَغۡفِرۡهُ‌ؔؕ اِنَّهٗ كَانَ تَوَّابًا‏ ﴿۳﴾

3. Then celebrate the Lord and seek His forgiveness. Surely He is Most Relenting (4)

3. It means O My Beloved! When you see these things happening, then engross yourself in the recitation of Tasbeeh (glorification) of Allah Almighty; Tahleel (verbal declaration) of the Unity of Allah Almighty and offering prayers of forgiveness for your followers, as henceforth your life would be nearing completion. These are the signs of the Holy worldly demise of Prophet's صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم .the purpose of his advent had been completed. Why should you then be left in the world, which is a prison? You should be with your Lord Who loves you so dearly.

A few points emerge from it:

1. A person should decrease his contact with the world in his old age and increase his worship of Allah Almighty and be engrossed in religious practices. Prepare the necessities for the journey before the journey.

2. The Istighfaar (asking of forgiveness from Allah Almighty) of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم is either to educate the Ummah, or is for the sinners of his Ummah. Otherwise, the Holy Prophet is totally free from sin.

4. Thereafter, the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم would recite the following SUBHANALLAH WA BEHAMDEHI ASTAGHFIRULLAH WA ATOOBOO ILAIHI. It is stated in some traditions that this Surah was revealed at the time of the Farewell Pilgrimage. After it was revealed: "Today I have perfected your religion for you..."(SS:V3). The Holy Prophet remained in the world for eighty days, after its revelation. Thereafter, the verse: "O Beloved Prophet! They ask you for a decree..."(S4:V177) was revealed, after which the Holy Prophet remained in the world for fifty days. After this, the verse: "And fear the day in which you shall be made to return to Allah..."(S2:V281) was revealed, after which the Holy Prophet lived for seven days. In short, the traditions are different (Tafseer Khazainul Irfaan).
