62:1  Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies God, the Controller, the Holy One, the Almighty, the Wise
62:2  It is He who raised a mes-senger, among the people who had no Scripture, to recite His revelations to them, to make them grow spiritually and teach them the Scripture and wisdom––before that they were clearly astray–&ndash
62:3  to them and others yet to join them. He is the Almighty, the Wise
62:4  such is God’s favour that He grants it to whoever He will; God’s favour is immense
62:5  Those who have been charged to obey the Torah, but do not do so, are like asses carrying books: how base such people are who disobey God’s revelations! God does not guide people who do wrong
62:6  Say [Prophet], ‘You who follow the Jewish faith, if you truly claim that out of all people you alone are friends of God, then you should be hoping for death.’
62:7  But because of what they have stored up for themselves with their own hands they would never hope for death––God knows the wrongdoers very well–&ndash
62:8  so say, ‘The death you run away from will come to meet you and you will be returned to the One who knows the unseen as well as the seen: He will tell you everything you have done.’
62:9  Believers! When the call to prayer is made on the day of congregation, hurry towards the reminder of God and leave off your trading––that is better for you, if only you knew–&ndash
62:10  then when the prayer has ended, disperse in the land and seek out God’s bounty. Remember God often so that you may prosper
62:11  Yet they scatter towards trade or entertainment whenever they observe it, and leave you [Prophet] standing there. Say, ‘God’s gift is better than any entertainment or trade: God is the best provider.’
