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

Admonishing those who abandon the Imam while he is delivering the Jumu'ah Khutbah [Sermon]

And when they see some merchandise or amusement, they break away to it, and leave you standing. Say, "What is with Allah is much better than the amusement and the merchandise, and Allah is the best giver of sustenance." (62:11)

COMMENTARY: The verse admonishes those who once abandoned the Friday sermon and attended some trade activity. Imam Ibn Kathir says that this incident took place when the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam used to deliver the Friday sermon after the Jumu'ah prayer, as it happens on Edayn even in our days. It once happened that the Friday prayer had finished and the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was delivering his sermon. Suddenly a trading caravan arrived in the market-place of Madinah. Drums were beaten to announce the arrival of the caravan. The Friday prayer had finished and the sermon was in progress. Many of the noble Companions went away to the market-place. Only a few of them had remained behind with the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam who were about twelve in number [according to a narration]. According to some narratives, the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: "If all had gone, the entire valley of Madinah would have been filled with the fire of punishment". [Transmitted by AbuYa'la, as quoted by Ibn Katheer]

An Italian and a Chinese fellow were hired at a construction site. The foreman pointed out a huge pile of sand and told the Italian guy, "You're in charge of sweeping. And to the Chinese guy, "You're in charge of supplies."

He then said, "Now, I have to leave for a little while. I expect you guys to make a dent in that there pile."

The foreman went away for a couple of hours, and, when he returned, the pile of sand was untouched. He asked the Italian, "Why didn't you sweep any of it?" The Italian replied, "I no hava no broom. You said to the Chinese fella that he was in a charge of supplies, but he has disappeared and I no coulda finda him nowhere.
