 Surah an Nasr benefits.

Reading Quran in general has many benefits and rewards for the reader. And here are some of the benefits of reading surah an-Nasr:
It was narrated by Imam Ahmad that Aisha said:  “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah prayers and peace be upon him, used to frequently say before his death: (Glory be to Allah and praise be to Him, I seek Allah forgiveness and repent to Him) She said: I said: O Messenger of Allah, you have often prayed. He said: (Indeed, my Lord, the Exalted, the Majestic, has informed me that He will show me knowledge in my ummah, so command me if I see that knowledge, to glorify Him, praise Him, and seek His forgiveness and that I have seen him and I forgive him.)”
No matter what a person did in his life he should repent to Allah and Allah will forgive him. Seek the forgiveness of Allah and try to overcome the sins that drag you down. Allah is always there for us and we shouldn’t turn back to anyone but him.
Tafsir surah Al-Nasr.
Al-Bukhari recorded from Ibn Abbas that he said, “Umar used to bring me into the gatherings with the old men of (the battle of) Badr. However, it was as if one of them felt something in himself (against my attending). So he said, `Why do you (`Umar) bring this (youth) to sit with us when we have children like him (i.e., his age)’ So `Umar replied, `Verily, he is among those whom you know. Then one day he called them and invited me to sit with them, and I do not think that he invited me to be among them that day except to show them. So he said, `What do you say about Allah’s statement,
﴿إِذَا جَآءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ ﴾
(When there comes the help of Allah and the Conquest.)’ Some of them said, `We were commanded to praise Allah and seek His forgiveness when He helps us and gives us victory.’ Some of them remained silent and did not say anything. Then he (`Umar) said to me, `Is this what you say, O Ibn `Abbas’ I said, `No.’ He then said, `What do you say’ I said, `It was the end of the life of Allah’s Messenger that Allah was informing him of. Allah said,

(When there comes the help of Allah and the Conquest.) which means, that is a sign of the end of your life.
﴿فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ إِنَّهُ كَانَ تَوِبَا ﴾
(So, glorify the praises of your Lord, and ask His forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives.)’ So, `Umar bin Al-Khattab said, `I do not know anything about it other than what you have said.”’ Al-Bukhari was alone in recording this Hadith. Imam Ahmad recorded from Ibn `Abbas that he said, “When

(Verily, my Lord has informed me that I will see a sign in my Ummah and He has commanded me that when I see it, I should glorify His praises and seek His forgiveness, for He is the One Who accepts repentance. And indeed I have seen it (i.e., the sign). (When there comes the help of Allah and the Conquest (Al-Fath). And you see that the people enter Allah’s religion in crowds. So glorify the praises of your Lord, and ask His forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives.))”
