* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَٱسْتَغْفِرْهُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوَّاباً }

then glorify with praise of your Lord that is continuously praising Him and seek forgiveness from Him; for verily He is ever ready to relent. The Prophet s after this sūra had been revealed would frequently repeat the words subhāna’Llāhi wa bi-hamdihi ‘Glory and praise be to God’ and astaghfiru’Llāha wa-atūbu ilayhi ‘I seek forgiveness from God and I repent to Him’; with the revelation of this final sūra he realised that his end was near. The victory over Mecca was in Ramadān of year 8; the Prophet s passed away in Rabī‘ I of the year 10.
