Quote:
{62:11} But when they saw a transaction or a diversion, [O Muhammad], they rushed to it and left you standing. Say, "What is with God is better than diversion and than a transaction, and God is the best of providers."

I suggest,
{62:11} But when they saw a trading or a dallying, they rushed to it and left you [, O Muhammad,] standing. Say, "What is with God is better than dallying and [better] than trading, and God is the best of providers."
