Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 that the blind man drew near him.
80:3 And what will cause thee to recognize so that perhaps he will purify himself
80:4 or yet recollect and a reminder profit him?
80:5 But as for he who was self-complacent,
80:6 then, thou hast attended to him
80:7 and not upon thee is any blame if he purifies not himself.
80:8 Yet as for him who drew near to thee, coming eagerly for knowledge
80:9 and he dreads God,
80:10 then, thou hast paid no heed to him?
80:11 No indeed! Truly, this is an admonition.
80:12 So let whoever willed, remember it
80:13 in scrolls to be held in esteem,
80:14 ones that are exalted and ones that are purified
80:15 by the hands of generous writers
80:16 and ones who are kindly, generous.
80:17 Perdition to the human being! How ungrateful he is!
80:18 From which thing did He create him?
80:19 He created him from seminal fluid then, ordained that he be.
80:20 He made the way easy for him again.
80:21 Again, He caused him to die and be buried.
80:22 Again, when He willed, He will revive him.
80:23 No indeed! The human being finishes not what He commanded him.
80:24 Then, let the human being look on his food—
80:25 how We, truly, unloosed rain water with a pouring out.
80:26 Again, We split the earth, a splitting.
80:27 And We put forth in it grain
80:28 and grapevines and reeds
80:29 and olives and date palm trees
80:30 and dense fertile gardens
80:31 and sweet fruits and whatever grows on the earth,
80:32 an enjoyment for you and your flocks.
80:33 Then, when the blare drew near,
80:34 that Day a man will run away from his brother
80:35 and his mother and his father
80:36 and his companion wife and his children.
80:37 For every man of them on that Day will be a matter that will preoccupy him.
80:38 Faces that Day will be ones that are polished,
80:39 ones who are laugh and ones who rejoice at good tidings.
80:40 And faces on that Day will be dust-stained.
80:41 Gloom will come over them.
80:42 Those, they are the ones who are ungrateful, ones who act immorally.
