Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah He Frowned(`Abasa)
80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 because the blind man came to him.
80:3 But how do you know? Perhaps he would be purified
80:4 or reminded, and the reminder benefit him.
80:5 As for him who thinks himself self-sufficient,
80:6 you give him your complete attention,
80:7 but it is not up to you whether or not he is purified.
80:8 But as for him who comes to you eagerly
80:9 showing fearfulness,
80:10 from him you are distracted.
80:11 No indeed! Truly it is a reminder,
80:12 and whoever wills pays heed to it.
80:13 Inscribed on Honoured Pages,
80:14 exalted, purified
80:15 by the hands of scribes,
80:16 noble, virtuous.
80:17 Curse man for his ingratitude!
80:18 From what thing did He create him?
80:19 From a drop of sperm He created him and proportioned him.
80:20 Then He eases the way for him.
80:21 Then He causes him to die and buries him.
80:22 Then, when He wills, He raises him from the dead.
80:23 No indeed! He has not done what He ordered him.
80:24 Man has only to look at his food.
80:25 We pour down plentiful water,
80:26 then split the earth into furrows.
80:27 Then We make grain grow in it,
80:28 and grapes and herbs
80:29 and olives and dates
80:30 and luxuriant gardens
80:31 and orchards and meadows,
80:32 for you and your livestock to enjoy.
80:33 When the Deafening Blast comes,
80:34 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 on that Day every man among them will have concerns enough of his own.
80:38 That Day some faces will be radiant,
80:39 laughing, rejoicing.
80:40 That Day some faces will be dust-covered,
80:41 overcast with gloom.
80:42 Those are the dissolute kafirun.
