          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

PICKTHAL: All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth
glorifieth Allah, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, the Mighty, the Wise.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.002

PICKTHAL: He it is Who hath sent among the unlettered ones a messenger of
their own, to recite unto them His revelations and to make them grow, and
to teach them the Scripture and wisdom, though heretofore they were indeed
in error manifest,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.003

PICKTHAL: Along with others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the
Mighty, the Wise.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.004

PICKTHAL: That is the bounty of Allah; which He giveth unto whom He will.
Allah is of Infinite Bounty.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.005

PICKTHAL: The likeness of those who are entrusted with the Law of Moses,
yet apply it not, is as the likeness of the ass carrying books. Wretched is
the likeness of folk who deny the revelations of Allah. And Allah guideth
not wrongdoing folk.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.006

PICKTHAL: Say (O Muhammad): O ye who are Jews! If ye claim that ye are
favoured of Allah apart from (all) mankind, then long for death if ye are
truthful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.007

PICKTHAL: But they will never long for it because of all that their own
hands have sent before, and Allah is Aware of evil-doers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.008

PICKTHAL: Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Lo! the death from which ye shrink
will surely meet you, and afterward ye will be returned unto the Knower of
the Invisible and the Visible, and He will tell you what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.009

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! When the call is heard for the prayer of the
day of congregation, haste unto remembrance of Allah and leave your
trading. That is better for you if ye did but know.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.010

PICKTHAL: And when the prayer is ended, then disperse in the land and seek
of Allah's bounty, and remember Allah much, that ye may be successful.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

062.011

PICKTHAL: But when they spy some merchandise or pastime they break away to
it and leave thee standing. Say: That which Allah hath is better than
pastime and than merchandise, and Allah is the Best of providers.
