Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

62. Sūrat al-Jumu‘ah 1

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 Whatever there is in the heavens glorifies Allah
and whatever there is in the earth,
the Sovereign, the All-holy, the All-mighty, the All-wise.
2 It is He who sent to the unlettered [people]
an apostle from among themselves,
to recite to them His signs, to purify them,
and to teach them the Book and wisdom,
and earlier they had indeed been
in manifest error.
3 And to others from among them [as well]
who have not yet joined them.
And He is the All-mighty, the All-wise.
4 That is Allah’s grace
which He grants to whomever He wishes,
and Allah is dispenser of a great grace.
5 The example of those who were charged with the Torah,
then failed to carry it,
is that of an ass carrying books.
Evil is the example of the people who
deny Allah’s signs,
and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing lot.
6 Say, ‘O Jews!

1 The sūrah in named after the Jumu‘ah (Friday) prayer mentioned in verse 9.
