Marmaduke Pickthall, The Meaning of The Glorious Koran. An Explanatory Translation (1930)

SÛRAH CX

An-Naṣr takes its name from a word in the first verse. It is one of the very last revelations, having come to the Prophet only a few weeks before his death. Though ascribed always to Al-Madînah, tradition says that it was actually revealed at Mecca during the days the Prophet spent there when he made his farewell pilgrimage. It is described in Ibn Hishâm and elsewhere as the first announcement that the Prophet received of his approaching death.

The date of revelation is the tenth year of the Hijrah.

Succour

Revealed at Al-Madînah
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1. When Allah’s succour and the triumph cometh

2. And thott seest mankind entering the religion of Allah in troops,

3. Then hymn the praises of thy Lord, and seek forgiveness of Him. Lo! He is ever ready to show mercy.
