Surah An-Nasr 110:1-3

In The Name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace. 

110:1 When Gods Succor comes, and victory. 


I.e., the religion of self-surrender to God: cf. 3:19 – “the only [true] religion in the sight of God is [man’s] self-surrender unto Him”.

110:2 And thou seest people enter God’s religion in hosts. 


Implying that even if people should embrace the true religion in great numbers, a believer ought not to grow self-complacent but should, rather, become more humble and more conscious of his own failings. Moreover, the Prophet is reported to have said, “Behold, people have entered God’s religion in hosts – and in time they will leave it in hosts” (Ibn Hanbal, on the authority of Jabir ibn Abd Allah; a similar Tradition, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, is found in the Mustadrak).

110:3 Extol thy Sustainer’s limitless glory, and praise Him, and seek His forgiveness, For, Behold, He is ever an acceptor of repentance.


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
