Al-Jumu'ah

Qur'an

  Revealed 110th  

62:1
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting God, the King, the Pure, the Almighty, the Most Wise.

62:2
It is He who has sent among the unlettered a messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom - although they were before in clear error -

62:3
And [to] others of them who have not yet joined them. And He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.
62:4
That is the bounty of God, which He gives to whom He wills, and God is the possessor of great bounty.  *2 Ezra 7:65

62:5
The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books].  Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of God.  And God does not guide the wrongdoing people.

62:6
Say, "O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of God, excluding the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful."

62:7
But they will not wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth.  And God is Knowing of the wrongdoers.

62:8
Say, "Indeed, the death from which you flee - indeed, it will meet you.  Then you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you about what you used to do."

62:9
O you who have believed, when the call is made for the prayer on the day of Jumu'ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of God and leave trade.  That is better for you, if you only knew.

62:10
And when the prayer has been concluded, disperse within the land and seek from the bounty of God, and remember God often that you may succeed.

62:11
But when they saw a transaction or a diversion, they rushed to it and left you standing.  Say, "What is with God is better than diversion and than a transaction, and God is the best of providers."
