Next Surah Previous Surah

The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned ˹his attention˺ away,
80:2 ˹simply˺ because the blind man came to him ˹interrupting˺.
80:3 You never know ˹O Prophet˺, perhaps he may be purified,
80:4 or he may be mindful, benefitting from the reminder.
80:5 As for the one who was indifferent,
80:6 you gave him your ˹undivided˺ attention,
80:7 even though you are not to blame if he would not be purified.
80:8 But as for the one who came to you, eager ˹to learn˺,
80:9 being in awe ˹of Allah˺,
80:10 you were inattentive to him.
80:11 But no! This ˹revelation˺ is truly a reminder.
80:12 So let whoever wills be mindful of it.
80:13 It is ˹written˺ on pages held in honour—
80:14 highly esteemed, purified—
80:15 by the hands of angel-scribes,
80:16 honourable and virtuous.
80:17 Condemned are ˹disbelieving˺ humans! How ungrateful they are ˹to Allah˺!
80:18 From what substance did He create them?
80:19 He created them from a sperm-drop, and ordained their development.
80:20 Then He makes the way easy for them,
80:21 then causes them to die and be buried.
80:22 Then when He wills, He will resurrect them.
80:23 But no! They have failed to comply with what He ordered.
80:24 Let people then consider their food:
80:25 how We pour down rain in abundance
80:26 and meticulously split the earth open ˹for sprouts˺,
80:27 causing grain to grow in it,
80:28 as well as grapes and greens,
80:29 and olives and palm trees,
80:30 and dense orchards,
80:31 and fruit and fodder—
80:32 all as ˹a means of˺ sustenance for you and your animals.
80:33 Then, when the Deafening Blast comes to pass—
80:34 on that Day every person will flee from their own siblings,
80:35 and ˹even˺ their mother and father,
80:36 and ˹even˺ their spouse and children.
80:37 For then everyone will have enough concern of their own.
80:38 On that Day ˹some˺ faces will be bright,
80:39 laughing and rejoicing,
80:40 while ˹other˺ faces will be dusty,
80:41 cast in gloom—
80:42 those are the disbelievers, the ˹wicked˺ sinners.
