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

O You who Believe, when the call for Salaah (prayer) is proclaimed on a Friday, hasten for the remembrance of Allah, and leave off business...[62:9]

COMMENTARY: The word Nida' refers to adhan or call for prayer. In the sentence (...hasten to Allah's remembrance...) the word Sa'ee means to 'run or rush' as well as to 'take care of a task consciously'. In this context, the word is used in the latter sense, because the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has prohibited to go to prayer running or walking quickly. He said when anyone hears the Iqamah, he should proceed to offer the prayer with calmness and dignity. The verse implies that when believers are called to prayer on the Day of Jumu'ah, they should proceed to the remembrance of Allah, that is, they should carefully go to the mosque for Jumu'ah prayer and its Sermon. Just as a person running towards something does not pay heed to anythtng else, a Muslim should not pay attention, after the call, to anything besides adhan and khutbah. [Ibn Kathir].

The phrase (...Allah's remembrance...) could refer to Jumu'ah prayer as well as to Jumu'ah Sermon, which is one of the conditions of the validity of Jumu'ah prayer. Therefore, the phrase may most appropriately be interpreted as referring to the package of Jumu'ah prayer and Jumu'ah Sermon. [Mazhari and others]

Fall in love with someone's compassion,
it shows how caring they are.
Fall in love with someone's character, it shows how they respect others.
Fall in love with someone's sincerity,
it shows how true they are.
Fall in love with someone's capacity to endure hardship,
it shows how strong they are.
Fall in love with someone's courage, it shows that they will protect you always.
Fall in love with someone's patience, it shows they are capable of waiting for you forever.
Fall in love with someone's dedication towards Allah,
it shows that truth and piety is the core of their existence.
That is true love...
the beginning to everything.

Falling in love with beauty, can never be true love...
the ending of a beginning.
Beauty is superficial, skin deep.
The real beauty lies beneath the skin, inside the heart where their Allah resides.

(Nashreen Kassim)
