(i) The post of the Caliph (al-Khilafah) is given to one among them,

(ii) The custody of the Sacred House (al-Hijabah) is assumed by someone from amongst them,

(iii) Giving water to the pilgrims (al-Siqayah) during Hajj is undertaken by someone amongst them, (iv) prophethood is given to someone amongst them,

(v) They were given victory over the [army of] elephants,

(vi) They worshipped Allah for seven years during which none worshipped Him, and

(vii) A Surah has been revealed about them in which none but them was mentioned-

﴾ لإيلاف قريش ﴿

For the taming of Quraysh (106:1).”

That the one who recites this Surah will get the reward of ten times the number of people performing Tawaaf and I’tekaaf.
