Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned his back,
80:2 for that there came to him a blind man!
80:3 But what should make thee know whether haply he may be purified?
80:4 or may be mindful and the reminder profit him?
80:5 But as for him who is wealthy,
80:6 thou dost attend to him;
80:7 and thou dost not care that he is not purified;
80:8 but as for him who comes to thee earnestly
80:9 fearing the while,
80:10 from him thou art diverted!
80:11 Nay! verily, it is a memorial;
80:12 and whoso pleases will remember it.
80:13 In honoured pages
80:14 exalted, purified,
80:15 in the hands of
80:16 noble, righteous scribes!
80:17 May man be killed! how ungrateful he is!
80:18 Of what did He create him?
80:19 Of a clot. He created him and fated him;
80:20 then the path He did make easy for him;
80:21 then He killed him, and laid him in the tomb;
80:22 then when He pleases will He raise him up again.
80:23 Nay, he has not fulfilled his bidding!
80:24 But let man look unto his foods.
80:25 Verily, we have poured the water out in torrents:
80:26 then we have cleft the earth asunder,
80:27 and made to grow therefrom the grain,
80:28 and the grape, and the hay,
80:29 and the olive, and the palm,
80:30 and gardens closely planted,
80:31 and fruits, and grass,-
80:32 a provision for you and for your cattle!
80:33 But when the stunning noise shall come,
80:34 on the day when man shall flee from his brother
80:35 and his mother and his father
80:36 and his spouse and his sons!
80:37 Every man among them on that day shall have a business to employ him.
80:38 Faces on that day shall be bright,-
80:39 laughing, joyous!
80:40 and faces shall have dust upon them,-
80:41 darkness shall cover them!
80:42 those are the wicked misbelievers!
