He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ The Prophet frowned and turned away (1) Because there came to him the blind man. (2) And what would make you know that he would purify himself, (3) Or take heed and so the reminder might avail him? (4) But the self-sufficient, (5) you attend to him, (6) though you are not to be blamed if he would not purify himself -- (7) And for him who came to you striving, (8) and in awe of God (9) you pay no heed to him. (10) By no means (should it be so)! For it is indeed a Message of instruction: (11) For any one who desires to bear it in mind, (12) In honored books, (13) uplifted, purified, (14) (Written) by the hands of scribes- (15) Noble and dutiful. (16) Woe to man! How ungrateful he is! (17) Of what [stuff] has He created him? (18) From Nutfah (male and female semen drops) He created him, and then set him in due proportion; (19) and then makes it easy for him to go through life; (20) Then He causes him to die, then assigns to him a grave, (21) Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again). (22) Nay, but (man) has not done what He commanded him. (23) Let man, then, consider [the sources of] his food: (24) How We pour water in showers (25) Then split the earth in clefts (26) Then We cause to grow therein the grain, (27) and vines and edible plants, (28) and olives and palms, (29) and dense-tree'd gardens, (30) And fruits and herbage: (31) In order to benefit you and your cattle. (32) But when the deafening cry shall be sounded (33) on the Day when each man shall flee from his brother, (34) and from his mother and father, (35) And his spouse and his son-- (36) on that Day every man among them will have enough concern of his own -- (37) Many a face will be glittering on that day. (38) Laughing, joyous. (39) And (many) faces on that day, on them shall be dust, (40) and overcast with gloom: (41) These are they who are unbelievers, the wicked. (42)
Almighty God's Truth.
