Victoryal-Fatḥ ( الفتح )

29 verses • revealed at Medinan

»The surah that opens by acclaiming the manifest Victory or Triumph of peace that God accorded His Prophet in the truce he agreed to with the Meccans at a place called Ḥudaybiyyah. It takes its name from verse 1 wherein “victory” (fatḥ) is mentioned. The surah makes reference to the occasion when the Prophet had a vision that he and his followers would be performing pilgrimage to Mecca (verse 27). They set out, but the Meccans decided to bar them at Ḥudaybiyyah from reaching the town and sent emissaries to have discussions with the Prophet. In the end the Prophet signed a treaty that he and the believers would not enter Mecca that year, but would do so the next year. Seeing the long-term significance of this treaty, in the interests of peace he agreed to a truce often years during which time, if any Meccan went over to his side, he would return him to the Meccans, but if any of his people went over to the Meccans, they would not return them. Throughout the surah the Prophet is assured that this treaty that God has given him is a great breakthrough (verse 1ff., verse 18 ff. and verse 27). The believers are reassured that their self-restraint and obedience to the Prophet were inspired by God (verse 4 ff. and verse 24 ff.). The surah condemns both the hypocrites in Medina (verse 6) and the idolaters of Mecca (verse 6 and verse 26) and closes by praising the believers (verse 29).«

The surah is also known as Conquest, The Manifest Triumph, Triumph

بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ

(Quran Complex): سورة الفاتحة سميت هذه السورة بالفاتحة؛ لأنه يفتتح بها القرآن العظيم، وتسمى المثاني؛ لأنها تقرأ في كل ركعة، ولها أسماء أخر. أبتدئ قراءة القرآن باسم الله مستعينا به، (اللهِ) علم على الرب -تبارك وتعالى- المعبود بحق دون سواه، وهو أخص أسماء الله تعالى، ولا يسمى به غيره سبحانه. (الرَّحْمَنِ) ذي الرحمة العامة الذي وسعت رحمته جميع الخلق، (الرَّحِيمِ) بالمؤمنين، وهما اسمان من أسمائه تعالى، يتضمنان إثبات صفة الرحمة لله تعالى كما يليق بجلاله.

إِنّا فَتَحنا لَكَ فَتحًا مُبينًا

(Quran Complex)

إنا فتحنا لك -أيها الرسول- فتحًا مبينًا، يظهر الله فيه دينك، وينصرك على عدوك، وهو هدنة "الحديبية" التي أمن الناس بسببها بعضهم بعضًا، فاتسعت دائرة الدعوة لدين الله، وتمكن من يريد الوقوف على حقيقة الإسلام مِن معرفته، فدخل الناس تلك المدة في دين الله أفواجًا؛ ولذلك سمَّاه الله فتحًا مبينًا، أي ظاهرًا جليًّا.
