This is the favour of Allah. He grants it to whoever He wills. And Allah is the Lord of infinite bounty.

The example of those who were entrusted with ˹observing˺ the Torah but failed to do so, is that of a donkey carrying books. How evil is the example of those who reject Allah’s signs! For Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “O Jews! If you claim to be Allah’s chosen ˹people˺ out of all humanity, then wish for death, if what you say is true.”

O believers! When the call to prayer is made on Friday, then proceed ˹diligently˺ to the remembrance of Allah and leave off ˹your˺ business. That is best for you, if only you knew.

               

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Once the prayer is over, disperse throughout the land and seek the bounty of Allah. And remember Allah often so you may be successful.
