Sher Ali rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned aside,
80:2 Because there came to him the blind man;
80:3 And what would make thee know that he would purify himself,
80:4 Or, that he would take heed and the taking of heed would benefit him?
80:5 How could it be that he who is disdainfully indifferent to the Truth,
80:6 Unto him thou shouldst pay attention -
80:7 Though thou art not responsible if he does not become purified -
80:8 But he who comes to thee hastening,
80:9 And he fears God,
80:10 Him shouldst thou neglect,
80:11 That should not be ! Surely, it is a Reminder -
80:12 So let him who desires pay heed to it -
80:13 Contained in honoured Books,
80:14 Exalted, purified,
80:15 In the hands of writers,
80:16 Noble and virtuous.
80:17 Woe unto man ! How ungrateful he is !
80:18 Does he not consider, from what thing did God create him?
80:19 From a sperm-drop ! HE creates him and proportions him?
80:20 Then HE makes the way easy for him,
80:21 Then in due course HE causes him to die and assigns a grave to him;
80:22 Then, when HE pleases, HE will raise him up again.
80:23 Nay ! he has not yet carried out what God commanded him to do.
80:24 Now let man look at his food;
80:25 How WE pour down water in abundance,
80:26 Then WE cleave the earth a proper cleaving,
80:27 Then WE cause to grow therein grain,
80:28 And grapes and vegetables,
80:29 And the olive and the date-palm,
80:30 And walled gardens thickly planted,
80:31 And fruits and herbage,
80:32 A provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when the deafening shout comes,
80:34 On the day when a man will flee from his brother,
80:35 And from his mother and his father,
80:36 And from his wife and his sons,
80:37 Every man among them that day will have concern enough of his own to make him indifferent to others.
80:38 On that day some faces will be bright,
80:39 Laughing, joyous.
80:40 And some faces, on that day, will have dust upon them,
80:41 Darkness covering them.
80:42 Those will be the disbelievers, the doers of evil.
