Muhammad ibn Ishaq, and Abdullah Ibn Zayd Ibn Aslam said, Surah Quraish is related to Surah Al Fil, and there was “Bimellahi ar Rahmani Ar Raheem” between them. The Quraish tribe used to make 2 caravans, (one caravan was in winter to Yemen, and the other one was in summer to Sham) in order to trade and gain regularly. After making these 2 caravans they return to their tribe safely, and all people respected them, this is one of the blessings that Allah has blessed them with. For this blessing, they have to worship Allah, thank Him for His blessings, and not to take a God but Allah. Allah also protected them against hunger, and fear, so they have to admit, and thank to Allah. Good life, and sustenance are the most important good blessings from Allah in this life, so He has to be thanked for this. The Messenger of Allah Muhammad (SAW) said this
