Shabbir Ahmed rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 Someone frowned and turned away.
80:2 Because the blind man approached him.
80:3 How could you know that he might have grown in goodness,
80:4 Or that he be enlightened and the Reminder might benefit him?
80:5 As for him who deems himself in no need of Guidance,
80:6 Unto him you give attention.
80:7 Yet it is not your responsibility if he grows not in goodness.
80:8 But as for him who came to you in all eagerness,
80:9 And feared straying. (2:2).
80:10 Him did you disregard!
80:11 Nay, indeed this is an Advisory.
80:12 So let him pay heed who will.
80:13 In Scrolls Dignified.
80:14 Exalted, Purified.
80:15 By the hands of Scribes.
80:16 Honorable and virtuous.
80:17 Man destroys himself, how ungrateful, rejecting the Sublime Truth!
80:18 Out of what thing has He created him?
80:19 From the male and the female gametes He created him, and then fashioned him in due proportion.
80:20 And then makes the Way easy for him. (Endowed with faculties).
80:21 Then causes him to die and brings him to disintegrated states. ('Qabr' = Grave = Disintegrated state = The state of sleep between physical death and Resurrection (36:52)).
80:22 Then, when He will, He shall raise him to life again.
80:23 Nay, man did not fulfill what He enjoined upon him.
80:24 Let man consider his food. (His own food has involved so many hands from the field to the mouth. Shouldn't he share Our provision with others?)
80:25 How We pour water in showers.
80:26 And then We split the earth, split and cleave.
80:27 And cause the grain to grow therein.
80:28 And vineyards, and fresh vegetation.
80:29 And olive trees and palm trees.
80:30 And dense beautiful gardens.
80:31 And fruits and grasses.
80:32 Provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when comes the Call,
80:34 On the Day when a man will flee from his brother,
80:35 And his mother and his father,
80:36 And his wife and his children.
80:37 To everyone on that Day will be enough his own concern.
80:38 Some faces on that Day will be bright as dawn.
80:39 Laughing, rejoicing at good news.
80:40 And some faces on that Day will have dust upon them,
80:41 With gloom overspread.
80:42 These, these will be the ones who denied the Truth and divided humanity.
