9. O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for the Salah on Al-Jumu`ah (Friday), then hasten (Fas`aw) to the remembrance of Allah and leave off business. That is better for you if you did but know! 10. Then when the Salah is complete, you may disperse through the land, and seek the bounty of Allah, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.
Surah Al-Jumu’ah (62:9-10)
Interpretation of the meaning:
Necessity of the Remembrance of Allah on Friday, by attending the Khutbah and the Prayer: Allah commanded the believers to gather to worship Him on Friday, “O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for the Salah on Al-Jumu`ah (Friday), then hasten (Fas`aw) to the remembrance of Allah”- meaning, go to it and head for it. The meaning of Sa`y (hasten) here does not refer to walking quickly. It only refers to the importance of it. Then proceed to the remembrance of Allah- As for walking in haste to the prayer, that was indeed prohibited. you have to hasten to the prayer with your heart and actions, and walk to it.
Prohibiting buying and selling after the Call on Friday, and the Exhortation to seek Provisions after it: Allah said, “and leave off business”- means, hastening to the remembrance of Allah and abandoning business, when the call to the Friday prayer is made. Therefore, the scholars of Islam agree, it is prohibited for Muslims to engage in business transactions after the second Adhan.” That is better for you if you did but know!” – means, `your abandoning buying and selling, and instead, concentrating your attention to Allah’s remembrance and the prayer are better for you in this life and the Hereafter, if you but knew.’
“Then when the Salah is complete”- means, when the Friday prayer is finished. “you may disperse through the land, and seek the bounty of Allah “- After Allah forbade Muslims from working after hearing the Adhan and ordered them to gather for the Friday prayer, He allowed them to spread throughout the earth and seek bounty after the prayer is finished.
“and remember Allah much, that you may be successful” – means, while you are buying and selling, giving and taking, remember Allah much and do not let this life busy you from what benefits you in the Hereafter.
