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

"...And (this Messenger is sent also) to others of them who did not join them so far. And He is the All-mighty, the All-wise... 62:3)

COMMENTARY: Sayyidna Abu Hurairah RA narrates, as recorded in Bukhari and Muslim, that they were sitting in the company of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) when Surah AI-Jumu'ah was revealed. He recited it to them, and when he reached the verse "...and others of them who have not joined them so far..." 62:3) they asked him who are these 'others'. He remained silent. They asked him the second time and he remained silent. They asked him the third time;", and he put his blessed hand on the back of Sayyidna Salman Al-Farisi RA (who was at that time in the gathering) and said: "If faith were on Pleiades, (an open star cluster about 424 light years away) even then some men or a man from these people would attain it. (Mazhari). This narration does not specify the people of Persia, but it does prove that they are included in the general sense of 'others'. This narration speaks greatly of all non-Arabs who embrace Islam. (Mazhari).

Can you explain?
Is faith that which ends a drought with much rain?
Indirectly, yes it is, God brings the rain, and patiently waiting for the rain is the part you play,
Believing that only God, Whom you've never seen can ease your pain,

Believing in the unseen, the unknown,
Believing in what cannot be physically shown,
Let me address those who do not believe,
Those who do not know why our souls must leave,

Look around, O! clueless one,
Who created the heavens and the earth, the moon and the sun?
With such intricate detail,
Who created the male and the female?

Human DNA is like a computer programme,
but far far far more advanced than any software ever created,
Is this a topic that can truly be debated?
Complex programmes are created, they do not evolve,
Yet you use the logic that the blueprint of life,
the far more complex programme of DNA developed
by chance as the world began to revolve?

Have you not read the Holy Scriptures, The Quran, the Bible, the Torah?
Do you not take note that they inform us of many scientific truths that are only being proven today?
In this make believe world that I just disproved, is this where you want to stay?

In the hereafter you'll get your fair share,
A time when it will be too late to run,
So change your way of thinking,
take a look around you,
contemplate on who created these natural wonders,
and Believe that God is the one.

The Judge President went duck hunting in rural Limpopo Province. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence.

As the judge climbed over the fence, an elderly Afrikaans farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing...

The Judge responded, 'I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it..'

The old farmer replied, 'This is my property, and you are not coming over here.'

The indignant judge said, 'I am one of the most important judges in South Africa and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own.'

The old farmer smiled and said, 'Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Limpopo Province. We settle small disagreements like this with the 'Three Kick Rule.'

The Judge asked, 'What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?'

The Farmer replied, 'Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up.'

The Judge quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He also liked the idea, so he agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the Judge. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the judge's groin and dropped him to his knees!

His second kick to the midriff sent the judge's last meal gushing from his mouth. The judge was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pat.

Summoning every bit of his will and remaining strength the judge very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, 'Okay, you old man. Now it's my turn.'

The old farmer smiled and said, 'Nah, I give up. You can have the duck.'
