Maududi rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 that the blind man came to him.
80:3 How could you know? Perhaps he would cleanse himself,
80:4 or he might be mindful and good counsel might avail him.
80:5 Now he who waxes indifferent,
80:6 you attend to him,
80:7 though you are not to blame if he would not cleanse himself.
80:8 But he who comes to you running,
80:9 and fears (Allah),
80:10 you pay no heed to him.
80:11 No indeed; this is only a Reminder.
80:12 So whoso wills may give heed to it.
80:13 It is contained in scrolls highly honoured,
80:14 most exalted and purified,
80:15 borne by the hands of scribes,
80:16 noble and purified.
80:17 Accursed be man! How stubbornly he denies the Truth.
80:18 Out of what did Allah create him?
80:19 Out of a sperm-drop did He create him and then determined a measure for him,
80:20 and then made the course of life easy for him,
80:21 then He caused him to die and brought him to the grave,
80:22 and then, whenever He wishes, He will raise him back to life.
80:23 Nay, but man did not fulfil what Allah had enjoined upon him.
80:24 So let man just consider his food:
80:25 We poured water, pouring it in great abundance,
80:26 and cleaved the earth, cleaving it asunder;
80:27 then caused the grain to grow out of it,
80:28 together with grapes and vegetables,
80:29 and olives and palms,
80:30 and dense orchards,
80:31 and fruits and pastures –
80:32 all this as a provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when the deafening cry shall be sounded
80:34 on the Day when each man shall flee from his brother,
80:35 and his mother and his father;
80:36 and his consort and his children;
80:37 on that Day each will be occupied with his own business, making him oblivious of all save himself.
80:38 Some faces on that Day shall be beaming with happiness,
80:39 and be cheerful and joyous.
80:40 Some faces on that Day shall be dust-ridden,
80:41 enveloped by darkness.
80:42 These will be the unbelievers, the wicked.
