* تفسير Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi


{ إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحاً مُّبِيناً }

(Lo! We have given thee (O Muhammad) a signal victory) [48:1]. Mansur ibn Abi Mansur al-Samani informed us> ‘Abd Allah ibn Muhammad al-Fami> Muhammad ibn Ishaq al-Thaqafi> Abu’l-Ash‘ath> al-Mu'tamir ibn Sulayman> his father> Qatadah> Anas who said: “We were sad and depressed when we returned from al-Hudaybiyyah because of being prevented from performing the pilgrimage. Allah, glorious and majestic is He, then revealed (Lo! We have given thee (O Muhammad) a signal victory), upon which the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, said: ‘A verse has been revealed to me and it is more beloved to me than the world and all that is in it’ ”. ‘Ata’ also reported that Ibn ‘Abbas said: “When the words of Allah, exalted is He, (…nor know I what will be done with me or with you…) [46:9] were revealed, the Jews insulted the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, and the Muslims, saying: ‘How will we follow a man who says that he does not know what will be done with him?’ The Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, was aggrieved by what they said, and Allah, glorious and majestic is He, revealed (Lo! We have given thee (O Muhammad) a signal victory that Allah may forgive thee of thy sin that which is past and that which is to come…) [48:1-2]”.
