Hamid S. Aziz - Sura: 62. Al-Jumu'ah - The Congregation

  1. Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth declares the glory of Allah, the King, the Holy, the Mighty, the Wise.

  2. He it is Who raised among the Unlettered ones a Messenger from among themselves, who recites to them His revelations and makes them grow (or purifies or sanctifies them), and teaches them the Book and the Wisdom, although they were before certainly in clear error,

  3. And others from among them who have not yet joined them (future converts); and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

  4. That is Allah´s grace; He grants it to whom He pleases, and Allah is the Lord of mighty Grace.

  5. The similitude of those who were charged with the Law of Moses, then they did not observe it, is as the similitude of the ass bearing books. Evil is the likeness of the people who reject the revelations of Allah; and Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.

  6. Say, "O you who are Jews, if you think that you are the favourites of Allah to the exclusion of other people, then invoke death if you are truthful."

  7. And they will never invoke it because of what their hands have sent before; and Allah is Aware of the unjust.

  8. Say, "The death from which you flee, that will surely overtake you, then you shall be sent back to the Knower of the unseen and the seen, and He will inform you of that which you used to do."

  9. O you who believe! When the call is made for prayer on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and abandon trading; that is better for you, if you know.

  10. But when the prayer is ended, then disperse abroad in the land and seek the Bounty of Allah, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.

  11. And when they see merchandise (bargains or business) or sport (amusement) they break up for it, and leave you standing. Say, "That which is with Allah is better than sport and better than merchandise, and Allah is the best of Sustainers."
