Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 that the blind man came to him.
80:3 And what should teach thee? Perchance he would cleanse him,
80:4 or yet remember, and the Reminder profit him.
80:5 But the self-sufficient,
80:6 to him thou attendest
80:7 though it is not thy concern, if he does not cleanse himself.
80:8 And he who comes to thee eagerly
80:9 and fearfully,
80:10 to him thou payest no heed.
80:11 No indeed; it is a Reminder
80:12 (and whoso wills, shall remember it)
80:13 upon pages high-honoured,
80:14 uplifted, purified,
80:15 by the hands of scribes
80:16 noble, pious.
80:17 Perish Man! How unthankful he is!
80:18 Of what did He create him?
80:19 Of a sperm-drop He created him, and determined him,
80:20 then the way eased for him,
80:21 then makes him to die, and buries him,
80:22 then, when He wills, He raises him.
80:23 No indeed! Man has not accomplished His bidding.
80:24 Let Man consider his nourishment.
80:25 We poured out the rains abundantly,
80:26 then We split the earth in fissures
80:27 and therein made the grains to grow
80:28 and vines, and reeds,
80:29 and olives, and palms,
80:30 and dense-tree'd gardens,
80:31 and fruits, and pastures,
80:32 an enjoyment for you and your flocks.
80:33 And when the Blast shall sound,
80:34 upon the day when a man shall flee from his brother,
80:35 his mother, his father,
80:36 his consort, his sons,
80:37 every man that day shall have business to suffice him.
80:38 Some faces on that day shall shine
80:39 laughing, joyous;
80:40 some faces on that day shall be dusty
80:41 o'erspread with darkness --
80:42 those -- they are the unbelievers, the libertines.
