Chapter 80:
Al-'Abasa — He Frowned:

Revealed at Makkah: 42 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

80:1 He frowned and turned away,

80:2 Because the blind man came to him.

80:3 And what would make thee know that he might purify himself,

80:4 Or be mindful, so the Reminder should profit him?

80:5 As for him who considers himself free from need

80:6 To him thou dost attend.

80:7 And no blame is on thee, if he purify himself not.

80:8 And as to him who comes to thee striving hard,

80:9 And he fears —

80:10 To him thou payest no regard.

80:11 Nay, surely it is a Reminder.

80:12 So let him, who will, mind it.

80:13 In honoured books,

80:14 Exalted, purified,

80:15 In the hands of scribes,

80:16 Noble, virtuous.

80:17 Woe to man! How ungrateful is he!

80:18 Of what thing did He create him?

80:19 Of a small life-germ. He creates him, then proportions him,

80:20 Then makes the way easy for him,

80:21 Then He causes him to die, then assigns to him a grave,

80:22 Then, when He will, He raises him to life again.

80:23 Nay, but he does not what He commands him.

80:24 Then let man look at his food —

80:25 How We pour down abundant water,

80:26 Then cleave the earth, cleaving (it) asunder,

80:27 Then cause the grain to grow therein,

80:28 And grapes and clover,

80:29 And the olive and the palm,

80:30 And thick gardens,

80:31 And fruits and herbage —

80:32 A provision for you and your cattle.

80:33 But when the deafening cry comes,

80:34 The day when a man flees from his brother,

80:35 And his mother and his father,

80:36 And his spouse and his sons.

80:37 Every man of them, that day, will have concern enough to make him indifferent to others.

80:38 Faces on that day will be bright,

80:39 Laughing, joyous.

80:40 And faces on that day will have dust on them,

80:41 Darkness covering them.

80:42 Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
