62:1  (Everything) in the heavens and in the earth glorifies Allah, (the Real) King, the Most Pure (of all shortcomings and imperfections), the Lord of Honour, the Almighty, the Most Wise
62:2  He is the One Who sent a (Glorious) Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) amongst the illiterate people from amongst themselves who recites to them His Revelations and cleanses and purifies them (outwardly and inwardly) and teaches them the Book and wisdom. Indeed, they were in open error before (his most welcome arrival)
62:3  And (He has sent this Messenger for purification and education amongst) others of them also who have not yet joined these people (that are present now i.e., they will come after them in later eras). And He is Almighty, Most Wise
62:4  This (arrival of the Holy Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him] as well as his spiritual benevolence) is Allah’s bounty which He grants whom He likes. And Allah is Most Bountiful
62:5  The case of those who were burdened with (the commandments and teachings of) the Torah (but) then did not bear it (i.e., this Messenger was mentioned in it, but they disbelieved in him) is like that of a donkey loaded with heavy books on its back. How evil is the example of those who have rejected Allah’s Revelations! And Allah does not guide the wrongdoers
62:6  Say: ‘O Jews, if you think that, leaving all other people, you alone are the friends of Allah (i.e., Awliya’), then long for death (because His Awliya’ will not fear in the grave and the Hereafter) if you are true (in your thinking).
62:7  And these people will never long for it due to (the rejection of the Messenger and disbelief) which they have sent forward. And Allah knows the wrongdoers well
62:8  Say: ‘The death from which you are fleeing is bound to catch up with you. Then you will be returned to Him (the Lord) Who knows the unseen and the seen. So He will inform you of what you used to do.
62:9  O believers! When on Fridays the call is made for (Jumu‘a) Prayer, hasten towards the remembrance of Allah (i.e., the Jumu‘a sermon and Prayer) immediately and abandon purchase and sale (i.e., business). That is better for you if you have knowledge
62:10  Then after the Prayer is offered, disperse in the land and (then) look for Allah’s bounty (i.e., sustenance). And remember Allah much so that you may attain to prosperity
62:11  And when they found some business or entertainment opportunity, they rushed towards that (due to their neediness and financial constraint) and left you standing (during the sermon). Say: ‘Whatever is with Allah is better than sport and business. And Allah is the Best of sustainers.
