He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ He frowned and turned away (1) Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting). (2) And what would make you know that he would purify himself, (3) (He might) remember, and the Reminder might profit him. (4) As for him who is not in want of any thing, (5) Unto him thou attendest. (6) although thou art not accountable for his failure to attain to purity; (7) But as for he who came to you striving [for knowledge] (8) And whereas he fears, (9) You neglect. (10) Assuredly this is a reminder (11) and so, whoever is willing may remember Him (12) Inscribed in Writs honoured, (13) Exalted and purified, (14) By the hands of scribes. (15) noble, pious. (16) Cursed is man; how disbelieving is he. (17) From what substance did He create him? (18) From a single sperm He created, then proportioned him, (19) Then maketh the way easy for him, (20) then causes him to die and buries him, (21) Then, when He will, He bringeth him again to life. (22) By no means he performed not that which He had commanded him. (23) Then let man look to his food, (24) For that We pour forth water in abundance, (25) And We split the earth in fragments, (26) And We cause therein the grain to grow, (27) And grapes and clover, (28) And olives and date-palms, (29) And dense gardens, (30) And fruits and herbage (31) as provision for you and for your cattle to enjoy. (32) When the trumpet sounds, (33) on that Day a man shall flee from his own brother, (34) Mother and father, (35) And his wife and his children, (36) for on that day everyone will be completely engrossed in his own concerns. (37) [Some] faces, that Day, will be bright - (38) and be cheerful and joyous. (39) Some faces on that Day shall be dust-ridden, (40) enveloped by darkness. (41) Such will be the Rejecters of Allah, the doers of iniquity. (42)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
