62:1  Whatever is in the heavens glorifies God and whatever is in and on the earth, The King, The Holy, The Almighty, The Wise.
62:2  He it is Who raised up among the unlettered a Messenger from among them who recounts His signs to them and makes them pure and teaches them the Book and wisdom even though they had been before certainly, clearly going astray
62:3  and to others among them who join them not. And He is The Almighty, The Wise.
62:4  That is the grace of God. He gives it to whom He wills. And God is Possessor of the Sublime Grace.
62:5  The parable of those who were entrusted with the Torah, and, again, carries it not is as the parable of a donkey who carries writings. Miserable was the parable of a folk who denied the signs of God! And God guides not the folk, the ones who are unjust.
62:6  Say: O those who became Jews! If you claimed that you are the protectors of God to the exclusion of humanity, then, covet death if you had been ones who are sincere.
62:7  But they will not covet it ever because of what their hands put forward. And God is Knowing of the ones who are unjust.
62:8  Say: Truly, the death that you run away from, then, it will be, truly, that which you encounter. Again, you will be returned to the One Who Knows of the unseen and the visible and He will tell you what you had been doing.
62:9  O those who believed! When the formal prayer was proclaimed on the day of congregation, then, hasten about to the Remembrance of God and forsake trading. That is better for you if you had been knowing.
62:10  Then, when the formal prayer had ended, disperse through the earth looking for the grace of God. And remember God frequently so that perhaps you will prosper.
62:11  And when they considered a transaction or a diversion, they broke away toward it, and left thee as one who is standing up. Say: What is with God is better than any diversion or than any transaction. And God is Best of the ones who provide.
