N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 HE¹ FROWNED and turned his back
80:2 when the blind man came towards him.
80:3 How could you¹ tell? He might have sought to purify himself.
80:4 He might have remembered, and remembrance might have done him good.
80:5 But to the wealthy man
80:6 you were all attention:
80:7 although the fault would not be yours if he remained uncleansed.
80:8 Yet to him that came to you with zeal
80:9 and awe,
80:10 you paid no heed.
80:11 No! This is an Admonition;
80:12 let him who will, bear it in mind.
80:13 It is set down on honoured pages,
80:14 exalted and purified,
80:15 by the hands of devout and gracious scribes.
80:17 Let man perish! How ungrateful he is!
80:18 From what did He create him?
80:19 From a little germ He created him and gave him due proportion.
80:20 He made his path smooth for him,
80:21 then caused him to die and stowed him in a grave.
80:22 He will surely bring him back to life when He pleases.
80:23 Yet he declines to do His bidding.
80:24 Let man reflect on the food he eats:
80:25 how We pour down the rain in torrents
80:26 and cleave the earth asunder;
80:27 how We bring forth the corn,
80:28 the grapes and the fresh vegetation;
80:29 the olive and the palm,
80:30 the thickets,
80:31 the fruit-trees and the green pasture,
80:32 for you and for your cattle to delight in.
80:33 But when the dread blast is sounded,
80:34 on that day each man will forsake his brother,
80:35 his mother and his father,
80:36 his consort and his children:
80:37 for each one of them will on that day have enough sorrow of his own.
80:38 On that day there shall be beaming faces,
80:39 laughing and joyful.
80:40 On that day there shall be faces covered with dust,
80:41 veiled with darkness.
80:42 These shall be the faces of the degenerate blasphemers.
