Some of the Prophet's Companions concluded that his mission was fulfilled, and that he was about to die (Bukhari). As a matter of fact, the Prophet passed away a little over two months later, and the only revelation which the Prophet received after this surah was verse "And be conscious of the Day on which you shall be brought back unto God, whereupon every human being shall be repaid in full for what he has earned, and none shall be wronged"(2:281).
There were about two and a half millions pilgrims during my Haj, I wonder how many there were during the Prophet's Haj when this last complete surah was conveyed by him to the world.
When God's succour comes, and victory,
and thou seest people enter God's religion in hosts,
extol thy Sustainer's limitless glory, and praise Him, and seek His forgiveness: for behold, He is ever an acceptor of repentance.
An-Nasr(The Succour): 1-3. It is the 110th surah of the 114 surahs of the Qur'an.
