Every Surah mentioned in the Qur’an holds a historical base. However, one can learn about different events happened during the life of our Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the era before Islam stated in the last ten Surahs. Thus, we have highlighted the significance and benefits of the last ten Surahs of the Holy Quran below:
1. Surah Fil
As it was revealed in Makkah, it is also known as “Makki Surah”. Allah (SWT) has warned the believers in terms of arrogance and proud in this Surah.
Benefits of Surah Fil
Its recitation saves us from oppressor leaders. On reciting Surah Fil in every Fard Rakats, mountains would serve as the witness of his prayers on the Day of Judgment and will be sent to Jannah over Allah’s command, as per the narration of Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (RA).
2. Surah Quraysh
In this Surah, Allah made the people of Quraysh as “the Head of Allah’s House” who were then given honor in whole Arabia. They also executed trading through trailers towards the East and West areas throughout the year.
Benefits of Surah Quraish
Prophet (PBUH) shared recitation of Surah Quraysh weighs equal to performing I’tekaaf and Tawaaf ten times.
3. Surah Maun
Surah Maun is centered on the people living against the teachings of Prophet (PBUH) and offering prayers just to show their surroundings.
Benefits of Surah Maun
Its reciter would stay safe the whole day.
4. Surah Kausar
The opposing people of Quraysh enjoyed the day when the beloved son of our Prophet (PBUH) died. Allah then mentioned that He has “Al-Kauthar”, a river for Him in Heaven.
Benefits of Surah Kausar
Reciting Surah Kauthar will benefit the believers hereafter by offering them water from the wellspring of Kauthar.
5. Surah Kafiroon
The difference between Islam and the held religion of that time was clearly stated in this Surah.
Benefits of Surah Kafiroon
According to our Holy Prophet (PBUH), its recitation weighs equal to reading a quarter of the Quran. Surah Kafiroon can keep us safe the entire night if recited daily before sleeping.
6. Surah Nasr
This Surah supports the claim of Allah (SWT) that victory can only be achieved to Prophet (PBUH) and those who will convert into a Muslim.
Benefits of Surah Nasr
Frequent recitation of Surah Nasr awards the same position as of those people who were with Holy Prophet (PBUH) when Makkah was occupied.

It is a prayer that is directed to seek safety from Allah for all the evils present.
