هو الذي بعث في الأميين رسولا منهم يتلو عليهم آياته ويزكيهم ويعلمهم الكتاب والحكمة وإن كانوا من قبل لفي ضلال مبين

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.

القرآن:

وآخرين منهم لما يلحقوا بهم ۚ وهو العزيز الحكيم

who have not yet joined them.

And He is the All-mighty, the All-wise.

That is Allah’s grace

which He grants to whomever He wishes,

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,

Yet they will never long for it,

because of what their hands have sent ahead,

and Allah knows best the wrongdoers.

will indeed encounter you.

Then you will be returned

to the Knower of the sensible and the Unseen,

and He will inform you

about what you used to do.’

When the call is made for prayer on Friday,

hurry toward the remembrance of Allah,

and leave all business.

That is better for you,

should you know.

فإذا قضيت الصلاة فانتشروا في الأرض وابتغوا من فضل الله واذكروا الله كثيرا لعلكم تفلحون

And when the prayer is finished

disperse through the land

and seek Allah’s grace,

and remember Allah greatly

so that you may be felicitous.

they scatter off towards it

and leave you standing!

Say, ‘What is with Allah

is better than diversion and dealing,

and Allah is the best of providers.’
