But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57


Sura 110


Sura 110 An-Nasr (Succour, Divine Support)

When comes the Help of Allah, and Victory,
And thou dost see the people enter Allah's Religion in crowds,
Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy).

According to Syed Abu-Ala' Maududi's commentary this was the last Sura "revealed" to Muhammad in one piece [in comparison with those that were "revealed" in separate sections and put together at a later time], and it was near the time of his death. It appears to be a fond reflection on Muhammad's success as a religious leader. By the end of Muhammad's life, many people had converted, or were converting (for one reason or another), to Islam. There is very little of interest, in terms of theology or philosophy, in this Sura.

Of greater interest, and beyond the scope of the commentary on this Sura, are the events which brought about Muhammad's demise. Here is an excellent article concerning the historical and philosophical issues surrounding Muhammad's death.
