He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ He frowned and turned away (1) Because there came to him the blind man. (2) What made you think that he will not grow in virtue, (3) Or that he may accept advice, so the advice may benefit him. (4) But the self-sufficient, (5) To him dost thou attend; (6) though you are not to blame if he would not cleanse himself. (7) And as to him who comes to you striving hard, (8) And with fear (in his heart), (9) him didst thou disregard! (10) Nay! surely it is an admonishment. (11) Let him who will, pay heed to it. (12) (It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour, (13) most exalted and purified, (14) (Set down) by scribes (15) Noble and pious. (16) Cursed be man! how ungrateful is he! (17) [Does man ever consider] out of what substance [God] creates him? (18) Out of a drop of sperm He creates him, and thereupon determines his nature, (19) Then doth He make His path smooth for him; (20) Then He causes him to die and be buried. (21) then, He will raise him when He wills. (22) But no. He has not fulfilled what was enjoined on him. (23) Let man look at his food: (24) We let the rain pour down in torrents (25) Then We split the earth properly. (26) And caused to grow within it grain (27) And grapes and fodder, (28) and olives, and palms, (29) And gardens of dense shrubbery (30) And fruit and grass - (31) Provision for you and your cattle. (32) When the trumpet sounds, (33) on that Day a man shall flee from his own brother, (34) And from his mother and his father, (35) As well as his wife and children. (36) Every man of them shall on that day have an affair which will occupy him. (37) (Many) faces on that day shall be bright, (38) Laughing, rejoicing at good news; (39) but some faces will be covered with dust (40) Blackness will cover them: (41) They will be the unbelievers, transgressors. (42)
