He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ (The Prophet (Peace be upon him)) frowned and turned away, (1) from a blind man who had come up to him. (2) But what could tell thee but that perchance he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?- (3) Or that he may accept advice, so the advice may benefit him. (4) As for him who thinketh himself independent, (5) to him thou attendest (6) although thou art not accountable for his failure to attain to purity; (7) but as for him who came unto thee full of eagerness (8) And he feareth (9) Him thou neglectest! (10) No indeed; this is only a Reminder. (11) so let those who want to follow its guidance do so. (12) (It is) in Records held (greatly) in honour (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz). (13) most exalted and purified, (14) by the hands of scribes (15) and angelic scribes. (16) May (the disbelieving) human being be condemned! What makes him disbelieve? (17) Of what [stuff] has He created him? (18) He created him from a living germ. He determined his fate (19) Then maketh the way easy for him, (20) Then gave him death, so had him put in the grave. (21) and He will resurrect him whenever He wants. (22) But no. He has not fulfilled what was enjoined on him. (23) So man must look at his food. (24) [how it is] that We pour down water, pouring it down abundantly; (25) Then We cleave the earth, cleaving (it) asunder, (26) to yield therein corn, (27) And grapes and fodder, (28) olives, dates, (29) thickly planted gardens, (30) and fruits and herbage, (31) for you and for your herds to delight in. (32) AND SO, when the piercing call [of resurrection] is heard (33) On that day man will run away from his brother. (34) And from his mother and father, (35) And his spouse and his son-- (36) For every one of them on that Day shall be business enough to occupy (37) Some faces that Day, will be bright (true believers of Islamic Monotheism). (38) Laughing, rejoicing. (39) And other faces, on that day, with dust upon them, (40) with darkness overspread: (41) these, these will be the ones who denied the truth and were immersed in iniquity! (42)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
