The Qur’an Surah 110: Help

The following is from a work-in-progress called The Qur'an: a Book Report, in which I read each surah of the Qur'an and write about what I learn.

The context of this surah is said to be the surrender of Mecca to the Prophet Muhammad and his community of Muslims.  This bloodless victory was an early triumph of Islam.  This surah is thought to be one of the last received by the prophet before he died: “When God’s help comes and He opens up your way [Prophet], when you see people embracing God’s faith in crowds, celebrate the praise of your Lord and ask His forgiveness: He is always ready to accept forgiveness.”
