Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned awa
80:2 that the blind man came to him
80:3 And what should teach thee? Perchance he would cleanse him
80:4 or yet remember, and the Reminder profit him
80:5 But the self-sufficient
80:6 to him thou attendes
80:7 though it is not thy concern, if he does not cleanse himself
80:8 And he who comes to thee eagerl
80:9 and fearfully
80:10 to him thou payest no heed
80:11 No indeed; it is a Reminde
80:12 (and whoso wills, shall remember it
80:13 upon pages high-honoured
80:14 uplifted, purified
80:15 by the hands of scribe
80:16 noble, pious
80:17 Perish Man! How unthankful he is
80:18 Of what did He create him
80:19 Of a sperm-drop He created him, and determined him
80:20 then the way eased for him
80:21 then makes him to die, and buries him
80:22 then, when He wills, He raises him
80:23 No indeed! Man has not accomplished His bidding
80:24 Let Man consider his nourishment
80:25 We poured out the rains abundantly
80:26 then We split the earth in fissure
80:27 and therein made the grains to gro
80:28 and vines, and reeds
80:29 and olives, and palms
80:30 and dense-tree'd gardens
80:31 and fruits, and pastures
80:32 an enjoyment for you and your flocks
80:33 And when the Blast shall sound
80:34 upon the day when a man shall flee from his brother
80:35 his mother, his father
80:36 his consort, his sons
80:37 every man that day shall have business to suffice him
80:38 Some faces on that day shall shin
80:39 laughing, joyous
80:40 some faces on that day shall be dust
80:41 o'erspread with darkness -
80:42 those -- they are the unbelievers, the libertines
