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. 

Explanation

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. 

Explanation

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.
