Surah Al-Jumu'ah (The Friday) 62

This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 11 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

"...The example of those who were ordered to bear (the responsibility of acting upon) the Torah, then they did not bear it, is like a donkey that carries a load of books..." 62:5

COMMENTARY: The word "Asfaar' is the plural of 'Sifr', which means a 'large book'. The preceding verses described that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was raised up among the unlettered people having three main objectives of his mission. The previous Divine Book Torah described the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) almost with the same qualities as are described in the Qur'an, which required that as soon as the Jews saw the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), they should have recognized him and believed in him. But the material position and possessions blinded them to the teachings of Torah. Despite their knowledge of the Torah, they acted as practical ignoramus.

The verse describes their block-headed behaviour with the example of a donkey loaded with weighty tomes. The donkey carries its loads, but it is neither aware of its subject-matter, nor does it benefit by it. Similarly, the Jews carry around the Torah for material gains and to seek position and status among people, but they do not benefit by its guidance.

YA AllAh thank u for Mama
YA AllAh thank u for Mama
YA AllAh thank u for Mama
YA AllAh thank u for Papa

AllAh created you with love
So u could share with me
U showed me how truly
A human should be

With so much care and flare
You are always there to share
And taught me not to stare.
But always to be aware

You taught me my deen
My beautiful Islam
You always make Duah
To strengthen our Iman

Through trials and tribulations
You will never give up
So much SABR, that makes u stand up

Taught me that the Dunya is of no use
For in the Hereafter, you will be amused.
O my child, let the Dunya not make u confused.

Mama I love You
I truly Do
I can never repay
For all that u have put on my life’s tray

There is no other
Like my dearest Mother
May AllAH make your rizq wide, you omar long
And your heart very very strong.

Ya Allah thank u for this loan
Rethink before I moan

May AllAh grant you and Papa the highest abode in JannAh


I Love You, I Love You
My Dear Mother

Peter was telling a friend that he had just lost his job. “

Why did the foreman fire you?” the friend asked in surprise.

“Oh,” Peter said, “you know how foreman are. They stand around with their hands in their pockets watching everybody else work.”

“We all know that,” replied his friend. “But why did he let you go?”

“Jealousy,” answered Pete. “All the other workers thought I was the foreman.”
