Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 HE FROWNED AND turned away,
80:2 Because a blind man came to him.
80:3 What made you think that he will not grow in virtue,
80:4 Or be admonished, and the admonition profit him?
80:5 As for him who is not in want of any thing,
80:6 You pay full attention,
80:7 Though it is not your concern if he should not grow (in fulness).
80:8 As for him who comes to you striving (after goodness),
80:9 And is also fearful (of God),
80:10 You neglect.
80:11 Assuredly this is a reminder
80:12 For any one who desires to bear it in mind,
80:13 (Contained) in honoured pages,
80:14 Exalted and holy,
80:15 In the hands of scribes
80:16 Noble and pious.
80:17 Accursed is man. How ungrateful is he!
80:18 Of what substance God created him?
80:19 From a single sperm He created, then proportioned him,
80:20 Then made his passage easy (at birth);
80:21 He will then send him to death and have him laid in the grave.
80:22 Then He will raise him up again when He please.
80:23 But no. He has not fulfilled what was enjoined on him.
80:24 Let man therefore consider (the sources of) his food.
80:25 We poured down rain abundantly,
80:26 Then We cracked the earth open under pressure (of germination)
80:27 And We made corn grow,
80:28 And grapes and herbage,
80:29 Olives and dates,
80:30 Orchards thick with trees,
80:31 And fruits and fodder:
80:32 A provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when the great calamity comes
80:34 Man will fly from his brother,
80:35 Mother and father,
80:36 As well as his wife and children.
80:37 Each man will have enough cares that day.
80:38 Many faces will that day be bright,
80:39 Laughing and full of joy,
80:40 And many will be dust-begrimed,
80:41 Covered with the blackness (of shame):
80:42 They will be the unbelievers, transgressors.
