Quran with English Translation

Surah Al Jumu'ah

Translator Abdullah Yusuf Ali



In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


1

Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare the Praises and Glory of Allah --
- the Sovereign,
- the Holy One,
- the Exalted in Might,
- the Wise.

2

It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered a messenger from among themselves,
- to rehearse to them His Signs,
- to sanctify them,
- and to instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom --
although they had been, before, in manifest error --

3

As well as (to confer all these benefits upon) others of them, who have not already joined them:
and He is Exalted in Might, Wise.

4

Such is the Bounty of Allah, which He bestows on whom He will:
and Allah is the Lord of the highest bounty.

5

The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not).
Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of Allah:
and Allah guides not people who do wrong.

6

Say:
"O ye that stand on Judaism! if ye think that ye are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!"

7

But never will they express their desire (for Death), because of the (deeds) their hands have sent on before them!
And Allah knows well those that do wrong!

8

Say:
"The Death from which ye flee will truly overtake you: then will ye be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that ye did!"

9

O ye who believe!
when the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic):
that is best for you if ye but knew!

10

And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah:
and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.

11

But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse headlong to it, and leave thee standing.
Say: "The (blessing) from the Presence of Allah is better than any amusement or bargain! And Allah is the Best to provide (for all needs)."
