فَسَبِّحۡ بِحَمۡدِ رَبِّكَ وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡهُ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ تَوَّابًا
Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy).<br/>
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 may peace and salutation be upon him, after this soora had been revealed, would frequently repeat the words subhaana'Llaahi wa bi-hamdihi, 'Glory and praise be to God', and astaghfiru'Llaaha wa-atoobu ilayhi, 'I seek forgiveness from God and I repent to Him'; with [the revelation of] this [final soora] he realised that his end was near. The victory over Mecca was in Ramadaan of year 8; the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him passed away in Rabee' I of the year 10.
