'Abasa

Qur'an

 Revealed 24th  

80:1
The prophet frowned and turned away

80:2
Because there came to him the blind man, [interrupting].

80:3
But what would make you perceive, that perhaps he might be purified

80:4
Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him?

80:5
As for he who thinks himself without need,

80:6
To him you give attention.

80:7
And not upon you [is any blame] if he will not be purified.

80:8
But as for he who came to you striving [for knowledge]

80:9
While he fears [God],

80:10
From him you are distracted.

80:11
No!  Indeed, these verses are a reminder;

80:12
So whoever wills may remember it.

80:13
[It is recorded] in honored sheets,

80:14
Exalted and purified,

80:15
[Carried] by the hands of messenger-angels,

80:16
Noble and dutiful.

80:17
Cursed is man; how disbelieving is he.

80:18
From what substance did He create him?

80:19
From a sperm-drop He created him and destined for him;

80:20
Then He eased the way for him;

80:21
Then He causes his death and provides a grave for him.

80:22
Then when He wills, He will resurrect him.

80:23
No!  Man has not yet accomplished what He commanded him.

80:24
Then let mankind look at his food -

80:25
How We poured down water in torrents,

80:26
Then We broke open the earth, splitting [it with sprouts],

80:27
And caused to grow within it grain

80:28
And grapes and herbage

80:29
And olive and palm trees

80:30
And gardens of dense shrubbery

80:31
And fruit and grass -

80:32
[As] enjoyment for you and your grazing livestock.

80:33
But when there comes the Deafening Blast

80:34
On the Day a man will flee from his brother

80:35
And his mother and his father

80:36
And his wife and his children,

80:37
For every man, that Day, will be a matter adequate for him.

80:38
[Some] faces, that Day, will be bright -

80:39
Laughing, rejoicing at good news.

80:40
And [other] faces, that Day, will have upon them dust.

80:41
Blackness will cover them.  [*2 Ezra 7:55]

80:42
Those are the disbelievers, the wicked ones.
