Edip-Layth (Quran: A Reformist Translation)

Note 1
Lit., "for the safeguarding of the Quraysh", i.e., as the custodians of the Kabah and the tribe in the midst of which the Last Prophet, Muhammad, was to appear. Thus, the "security of the Quraysh" is a metonym for the security of the Kabah, the focal point of the Faith based on the concept of God's oneness, for the sake of which the army of Abrahah was destroyed (see introductory note as well as preceding surah).
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
106:1 This should be cherished by Quraish.,
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)
106:1 For the privilege (of security) cherished by Quraish.1

Note 1


This Surah has just four yet highly eloquent verses. Being honored by the servants of God is a great blessing that can best be returned by serving Him. And the way to serve Him is to serve His creation.



Quraish were the most prominent tribe in all Arabia for being the custodians of the Blessed Shrine of Ka‘bah in Makkah. They were honored by all the tribes, and their caravans remained secure from raids which were otherwise a common occurrence. Makkah itself was a bustling trade center in the middle of some great caravan routes. It was known as the Town of Peace and security even before the call to Islam by the exalted Prophet who was born in that tribe and Town in 570 CE.



With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness
