Al-muntakhab fi tafsir al-Qur'an al-Karim rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He, -the Messenger- frowned and turned away,
80:2 When the blind man came in (and interrupted his exhortation to some of the Qurashite nobilities who tried to suppress his mission and stood in his way).
80:3 "You Muhammad do not know; he -the blind man- may well hug faith to his innermost thoughts and to his innermost being and commend his secret feelings to Allah.
80:4 Or he might ponder what he learns and profit by it.
80:5 But he who is rich, with abundant means at command.
80:6 You give him attention, hoping he would submit.
80:7 Yet you are absolved if his disbelief in Allah does not remit.
80:8 But he who comes to you seeking authoritative counsel and admonition,
80:9 With heart full of reverence and mindful of submission,
80:10 you are unmindful of him and you give him little attention."
80:11 No indeed, but let this incident be an admonition;
80:12 and he who wishes, may keep Allah in mind and imprint in his heart His Glorious Quran which conduces to piety and to contrition
80:13 A Quran recorded in Books, honoured and highly esteemed,
80:14 Exalted, absolute and pure honourably deemed.
80:15 Recorded by Scribes emblematic of trust,
80:16 Honourable, pious and just.
80:17 Accursed be man, how he fights against his own good the best he can!
80:18 From what primordium did Allah create him?
80:19 From a seed in fluid emitted did He create him and animate, and his dimensions and his life span, his provisions and his lot did He determine, and his intellect did He actuate.*
80:20 Then He guided him to the path of safety and righteousness and his course did He facilitate
80:21 Then He occasioned his death and in the grave did He deposit and inanimate.
80:22 Then when He wills, He shall resurrect him and animate.
80:23 But no, he never fulfilled what Allah has commanded and ordained.
80:24 Let man take a look at his food.
80:25 We poured down rain-water in quantities which stream and flow,
80:26 Then We split the earth and break up the soil to allow water in and vegetations to grow.
80:27 Therein We grew edible grain,
80:28 Grapes and herbage,
80:29 Olive trees and palm-dates,
80:30 Gardens of perennial and other purposeful trees,
80:31 and fruits and fodder;
80:32 Sustenance for you and for your cattle.
80:33 Then when the deafening uproarious eventful Event* comes about
80:34 Man shall then flee from his own brother,
80:35 From his mother and his father,
80:36 and from his wife and his children.
80:37 For each of them then, there is enough trouble of his own.
80:38 Some faces will then be beaming,
80:39 Smiling and rejoicing in all seeming,
80:40 Other faces will be coated with gloom,
80:41 A painful depressing darkness they shall assume.
80:42 These are the wicked infidels who impudently defied admonition.
