T.B.Irving rendition of Surah The Congregation, Friday, The Day of Congregation(al-Jumu`ah)
62:1 Whatever is in Heaven and whatever is on Earth celebrates God the Sovereign [Who is] the Holy, the Powerful, the Wise!
62:2 He is the One Who has dispatched a messenger from the Unlettered [people] among themselves, to recite His verses to them and purify them and teach them the Book and wisdom, even though previously they were in obvious error;
62:3 as well as others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the Powerful, the Wise!
62:4 Such is God´s bounty which He gives to anyone He wishes. God possesses splendid bounty!
62:5 Those who are laden with the Old Testament, yet do not carry it out may be compared to a donkey who is carrying scriptures. It is such a dreadful way to have to compare people who reject God´s signs! God does not guide such wrongdoing folk.
62:6 SAY: "You who are Jews, if you claim to be God´s adherents ahead of [other] people, then long for death if you are so truthful."
62:7 They will never long for it because of what their hands have already done. God is Aware as to who are wrongdoers.
62:8 SAY: "If it is death that you flee, it will still overtake you. Then you will be sent back to the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible; He will notify you about whatever you have been doing."
62:9 You who believe, when [the call to] prayer is announced on the day of Congregation. hasten to remember God and close your [place of] business. That will be better for you if you only realized it.
62:10 Once prayer has been performed, then disperse throughout the land and seek God´s bounty. Remember God frequently so that you may prosper.
62:11 Yet whenever they see some business or some sport they flock towards it and leave you standing there [alone]. SAY: "Whatever God has is better than any sport or business. God is the Best Provider!"
