In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

All that is in the heavens and earth declares the glory of Allah, the King, the Holy, the Mighty, the Wise.[1] It is He Who has raised among the unlettered people a Rasool of their own, who recites to them His revelations, purifies them, and teaches them the Book and Wisdom, though prior to this they were in gross error,[2] he is also sent for others of them who have not yet joined them (become Muslims). He is the Mighty, the Wise.[3] That is the grace of Allah, which He bestows on whom He pleases. Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.[4]


Allah appointed Muhammad as a Rasool

The example of those who were charged with the Taurăt, but failed to carry out their obligations, is that of a donkey who is carrying books and does not know what is in those books. Bad is the example of those who deny the revelations of Allah. Allah does not guide the wrongdoers.[5] Say to the Jews: “O you, the Jews! If you claim that you are the favorites of Allah to the exclusion of other people, then wish for death if what you say is true."[6] But, because of what their hands have sent before them for the Hereafter, they will never wish for death. Allah knows these wrongdoers very well.[7] Tell them: "The death from which you are running away, will surely overtake you: then you will be sent back to Him Who knows the unseen and the seen; and He will tell you all that you have been doing."[8]


Allah rebutted the claim of Jews to be the favorites of God to the exclusion of others

O believers! When the call for Salah (prayer) is made on Friday (the day of congregational prayers), hasten to the remembrance of Allah and cease your business. That is better for you if you but knew.[9] When you finish the Salah, then disperse through the land and seek the bounty of Allah (go back to your normal business). Remember Allah frequently, so that you may prosper.[10] Those who are still weak in Imăn (faith), when they see some bargain or some sport they rush to it and leave you standing. O Prophet declare to them that what Allah has in store for them is far better than any sport and bargain, and Allah is the best provider.[11]


Commandment relating to the obligation of Friday Prayers

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Allah has appointed Muhammad (pbuh) as His Rasool.
* Allah rebutted the claim of Jews to be the favorites of God to the exclusion of others.
* Commandment relating to the obligation of 'Friday Prayers.'

The first section was revealed after the final defeat of the Jewish tribes at the Battle of Khayber. Allah Almighty revealed this last and final address which was directed towards the Jews in the Qur'an. In this they are reminded of three things:

  1. Did you refuse to believe in Muhammad (pbuh) only because he was born among a people whom you considered 'gentiles'? You were under the false delusion that a Rasool must necessarily belong to your own community and that anyone who claimed to be a Prophet outside your own community must be an imposter. This is Allah's bounty, which He may bestow on any one He may please. You have not been granted a monopoly over it.
  2. You were made the bearers of the Torah, but you did not undertake your responsibility and discharge it as you should have. Therefore you are no better than that donkey who is loaded with books and does not know what burden he is bearing. You not only shirk your responsibility of being the bearers of Allah's book, but you did not even hesitate to deliberately deny Allah's revelations. Yet you consider yourselves as Allah's favorites.
  3. If you really consider yourselves as Allah's favorites and were sure of hav- ing a place of honor and high rank with Him you would not have feared death and accepted a life of disgrace and subjugation. This condition itself is proof that you are fully conscious of your misdeeds, and your conscience is aware that if you die with these misdeeds, you will meet your Rabb with a greater disgrace on the Day of Judgement. In the second section, Allah warned the Muslims not to treat their Friday as the Jews had treated their Sabbath. This section was sent down on the occasion when a trade caravan arrived in Madinah right at the time of Friday congregation prayer. During the service when the people heard the din and drum, they left the Prophet's mosque and rushed to the caravan although the Prophet was delivering the Sermon. Thereupon it was enjoined that when the call for the Friday Prayer was made all trade, business and other occupation must stop. Upon hearing the call, believers should suspend every kind of transaction and hasten to the remembrance of Allah. However , when the prayer is over they can go back and resume their normal business.
