Surah Quraysh (106) benefits _ waafaa

It is Surah Quraysh Surah 106 of the Qur’an Al-Kareem, revealed immediately after Surah Fil which is related to it in many ways. This surah was revealed in Makkah and has 4 verses. But it has a great place in the Qur’an. It is classified as Meccan chapter,

Which means that it was revealed before the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and his Muslim companions moved from Makkah to Madinah (this journey is called the Hijra Nabiyah). And it is named after the Quraish, the main tribe of Makkah at the time of revelation, and is the only surah of the Qur’an named after a tribe of Arabs.

Surah History:

The Quraish are a trading Arab tribe that historically inhabited and controlled the city of Mecca and the Kaaba.

This surah was named “Quraysh” because it was sent as a message to him, his name being mentioned in the first verse.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) was born in the Banu Hashim tribe of Quraish. Quraysh were staunch opponents of Muhammad until he accepted Islam in 630 AD.

This surah speaks directly about the people of Quraish and exhorts them to serve Allah.

Translation of Surah Quraish:

At least in favor of keeping Quraish safe as usual

In their trade caravans, they stay safe in Yemen in winter and Syria in summer.

They should worship the Lord of this holy (Sacred)  house

Who fed them from hunger and protected them from fear.
Surah Quraysh

Virtues of Surah Quraysh:

In a hadith of the Messenger of Allah( peace be upon him) he mentioned that the Quraish were blessed with seven attributes. These attributes were not given to anyone before them and will not be given to anyone later. These are that the Prophet (PBUH) is among them; one of them received prophethood. He was the guardian of the Kaaba and took care of it.

Zamzam water is under their responsibility and maintenance. Allah gave them victory over the elephants (Abraha and his army). The first people to accept Islam at the hands of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) were the Quraysh, and among them there were people who worshiped only Allah for ten years before migrating. Allah Ta’ala revealed a Surah in their name in the Holy Qur’an and no other tribe has it.
