George Sale rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 The prophet frowned, and turned aside,
80:2 because the blind man came unto him:
80:3 And how dost thou know whether he shall peradventure be cleansed from his sins;
80:4 or whether he shall be admonished, and the admonition shall profit him?
80:5 The man who is wealthy,
80:6 thou receivest respectfully;
80:7 whereas it is not to be charged on thee, that he is not cleansed:
80:8 But him who cometh unto thee earnestly seeking his salvation,
80:9 and who feareth God,
80:10 dost thou neglect.
80:11 By no means shouldest thou act thus.
80:12 Verily the Koran is an admonition; -- and he who is willing retaineth the same; --
80:13 written in volumes honourable,
80:14 exalted, and pure;
80:15 by the hands of scribes honoured,
80:16 and just.
80:17 May man be cursed! What hath seduced him to infidelity?
80:18 Of what thing doth God create him?
80:19 Of a drop of seed doth He create him; and He formeth him with proportion;
80:20 and then facilitateth his passage out of the womb:
80:21 Afterwards He causeth him to die, and layeth him in the grave;
80:22 hereafter, when it shall please Him, He shall raise him to life.
80:23 Assuredly. He hath not hitherto fully performed what God hath commanded him.
80:24 Let man consider his food; in what manner it is provided.
80:25 We pour down water by showers;
80:26 afterwards We cleave the earth in clefts,
80:27 and We cause corn to spring forth therein,
80:28 and grapes, and clover,
80:29 and the olive, and the palm,
80:30 and gardens planted thick with trees,
80:31 and fruits, and grass,
80:32 for the use of yourselves and of your cattle.
80:33 When the stunning sound of the trumpet shall be heard;
80:34 on that day shall a man fly from his brother,
80:35 and his mother, and his father,
80:36 and his wife, and his children.
80:37 Every man of them, on that day, shall have business of his own sufficient to employ his thoughts.
80:38 On that day the faces of some shall be bright,
80:39 laughing, and joyful:
80:40 And upon the faces of others, on that day, shall there be dust;
80:41 darkness shall cover them.
80:42 These are the unbelievers, the wicked.
