Surah al-Nasr the story behind it
This Surah was revealed around the Conquest of Makkah, which took place in the year 8AH.
After the Conquest, many of the Arab tribes would accept Islam, and the Arabian Peninsula would come under the control of the Muslims.
This Surah also signified that the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was coming to an end.
He is ordered to praise Allah, by saying, ‘Alhamdulillah’, and to make istighfar, by saying, ‘Astaghfirullah’.
