T.B.Irving rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 because the blind man came to him!
80:3 What will make you realize that he may [yet] be purified (of disbelief)
80:4 or even reminded, and the Reminder may benefit him?
80:5 However anyone who seems indifferent,
80:6 you will attend to.
80:7 It is not your concern whether he will purify himself (or not)!
80:8 Yet with someone who comes to you eagerly
80:9 and anxiously,
80:10 you act so distracted!
80:11 Indeed, it serves as a Reminder!
80:12 Anyone who wishes should remember how it
80:13 [exists] on honored pages
80:14 which are held aloft [for display], cleansed
80:15 by the hands of noble, virtuous scribes.
80:16 (noble, virtuous
80:17 Let man be damned! What makes him act ungrateful?
80:18 From what sort of thing did He create him?
80:19 From a drop of semen has He created him and proportioned him.
80:20 Then He made the Way easy for him;
80:21 next He will let him die and bury him.
80:22 Then [later on] He will raise him up again whenever He may wish.
80:23 Of course he does not accomplish what He orders him to.
80:24 So let man look at his own food!
80:25 We let water pour down abundantly;
80:26 then We split the earth right open
80:27 and cause grain to sprout from it,
80:28 and grapes and fodder,
80:29 olive trees, datepalms
80:30 and dense woodlots
80:31 and fruit[-trees) and pastures
80:32 as an enjoyment for both you and your livestock.
80:33 When the uproar comes
80:34 on a day when man will flee from his brother,
80:35 his mother and his father,
80:36 his mate and his children,
80:37 every last man among them will have enough concern that day to keep him occupied.
80:38 Some faces will be beaming on that day,
80:39 laughing, rejoicing;
80:40 while other faces will be covered with grime on that day,
80:41 soot will overshadow them.
80:42 Those will be the shameless disbelievers.
