62:1  Everything in the heavens and everything in the earth glorifies Allah, the King, the All-Pure, the Almighty, the All-Wise.
62:2  It is He who raised up among the unlettered people a Messenger from them to recite His Signs to them and purify them and teach them the Book and Wisdom, even though before that they were clearly misguided.
62:3  And others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise.
62:4  That is Allah´s favour which He gives to whoever He wills. Allah´s favour is indeed immense.
62:5  The metaphor of those who were charged with the Torah but then have not upheld it, is that of a donkey loaded with weighty tomes. How evil is the metaphor of those who deny Allah´s Signs! Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.
62:6  Say: ´You Jews, if you claim to be the friends of Allah to the exclusion of all other people, then wish for death if you are telling the truth.´
62:7  But they will never ever wish for it because of what they have done. Allah knows the wrongdoers.
62:8  Say: ´Death, from which you are fleeing, will certainly catch up with you. Then you will be returned to the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible and He will inform you about what you did.´
62:9  You who have iman! when you are called to salat on the Day of Jumu´a, hasten to the remembrance of Allah and abandon trade. That is better for you if you only knew.
62:10  Then when the salat is finished spread through the earth and seek Allah´s bounty and remember Allah much so that hopefully you will be successful.
62:11  But when they see a chance of trade or entertainment they scatter off to it and leave you standing there. Say: ´What is with Allah is better than trade or entertainment. Allah is the Best of Providers.´
