Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away,
80:2 Because the blind man came to him.
80:3 And what would make thee know that he might purify himself,
80:4 Or be mindful, so the Reminder should profit him?
80:5 As for him who considers himself free from need
80:6 To him thou dost attend.
80:7 And no blame is on thee, if he purify himself not.
80:8 And as to him who comes to thee striving hard,
80:9 And he fears --
80:10 To him thou payest no regard.
80:11 Nay, surely it is a Reminder.
80:12 So let him who will mind it.
80:13 In honoured books,
80:14 Exalted, purified,
80:15 In the hands of scribes,
80:16 Nobel, virtuous.
80:17 Woe to man! How ungrateful is he!
80:18 Of what thing did He create him?
80:19 Of a small life-germ. He creates him, then proportions him,
80:20 Then makes the way easy for him,
80:21 Then he causes him to die, then assigns to him a grave,
80:22 Then when He will, He raises him to life again.
80:23 Nay, but he does not what He commands him.
80:24 Then let man look at his food --
80:25 How We pour down abundant water,
80:26 Then cleave the earth, cleaving (it) asunder,
80:27 Then cause the grain to grow therein,
80:28 And grapes and clover,
80:29 And the olive and the palm,
80:30 And thick gardens,
80:31 And fruits and herbage --
80:32 A provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when the deafening cry comes,
80:34 The day when a man flees from his brother,
80:35 And his mother and his father,
80:36 And his spouse and his sons.
80:37 Every man of them, that day, will have concern enough to make him indifferent to others.
80:38 Faces on that day will be bright,
80:39 Laughing, joyous.
80:40 And faces on that day will have dust on them,
80:41 Darkness covering them.
80:42 Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
