Sura Al-Jumuah (Friday)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    62:1 All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifies God, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, the Mighty, the Wise.

    62:2-3 He it is Who has sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger of their own, to recite to them His revelations and to purify them of their sin, and to teach them the Scripture and Wisdom, though before that they were indeed in error manifest, along with others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

    62:4 That is the bounty of God; which he gives to whom He wills. God is of infinite bounty.

    62:5 The similitude of those who are entrusted with the Law of Moses, yet apply it not, are as that of the donkey carrying books. Wretched is the similitude of folk who deny the revelations of God. And God guides not wrongdoing folk.

    62:6-8 Say (O Muhammad): O you who are Jews! If you claim that you are favored by God apart from (all) people, then long for death if you are truthful. But they will never long for it because of all that their own hands have sent before, and God is Aware of the evildoers. Say (to them, O Muhammad): Lo! The death from which you shrink will surely meet you, and afterward you will be returned to the Knower of the invisible and the visible, and He will tell you what you used to do.

    62:9-11 O you who believe! When the call is heard for the prayer of the day of congregation, haste to remembrance of God and leave your trading. That is better for you if you did but know. And when the prayer is ended, then disperse in the land and seek of God's bounty, and remember God much, that you may be successful. But when they spy some merchandise or pastime they break away to it and leave you standing. Say: That which God has is better than pastime and better than merchandise, and God is the Best of providers.
