In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
The Holy Qur'an
Translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
62. THE CONGREGATION
Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and
Glory of God,- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Exalted in Might, the
It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered an apostle from among
themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to
instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom,- although they had been,
before, in manifest error;-
As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who
have not already joined them: And He is exalted in Might, Wise.
Such is the Bounty of God, which He bestows on whom He will: and God
is the Lord of the highest bounty.
The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the)
Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is
that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not).
Evil is the similitude of people wh o falsify the Signs of God: and
God guides not people who do wrong.
Say: "O ye that stand on Judaism! If ye think that ye are friends
to God, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for
Death, if ye are truthful!"
But never will they express their desire (for Death), because of the
(deeds) their hands have sent on before them! and God knows well those
that do wrong!
Say: "The Death from which ye flee will truly overtake you: then
will ye be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He
will tell you (the truth of) the things that ye did!"
O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the
Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of God, and
leave off business (and traffic): That is best for you if ye but knew!
And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the
land, and seek of the Bounty of God: and celebrate the Praises of God
often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.
But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse
headlong to it, and leave thee standing. Say: "The (blessing)
from the Presence of God is better than any amusement or bargain! and
God is the Best to provide (for all needs)."
