In the name of
Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

and glory of Allah, the sovereign, the holy one, the exalted in might, the
2It is He who has sent among the unlettered an apostle 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
3As well as others of them who have not already joined them: and
He is exalted in might, wise.
4Such is the bounty of Allah which He bestows on whom He will:
and Allah is the Lord of the highest bounty.

1. The Arabs were not an unlettered people. On
the contrary, they were among the literally advanced nations of the world.
They had their own alphabets and means of writing and the preservation of
materials. Though Muhammad is claimed to be unlettered, some of his
followers were highly literate and therefore they could record all his
revelations on parchments, animal skins, and tablets. Had they been
unlettered, the Qur’an would not have been written.
5The similitude of those who were charged with the Mosaic law but
who subsequently failed in those, 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.
6Say: “O you that stand on Judaism! if you think that you are
friends to Allah to the exclusion of men then express your desire for death,
if you are truthful!”
7But never will they express their desire for death because of
what their hands have sent on before them! And Allah knows well those that

8Say “The death from which you flee will truly overtake you: then
will you be sent back to the knower of things secret and open: and He will
tell you the things that you did!”
9O you who believe! when the call is proclaimed to prayer on
Friday, hasten earnestly to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off
business: that is best for you if you but knew!
10And when the prayer is finished, then may you disperse through
the land and seek of the bounty of Allah: and celebrate the praises of Allah
often that you may prosper.
11But when they see some bargain or some amusement, they disperse
headlong to it and leave you 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.”
