He Frowned ('Abasa)
42 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ He frowned and turned away (1) when the blind man approached him, (2) And what would make you know that he would purify himself, (3) Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him? (4) Yet you pay attention (5) To him you give attention. (6) although thou art not accountable for his failure to attain to purity; (7) But as to him who came to thee striving earnestly, (8) And is also fearful (of God), (9) From him thou art distracted. (10) By no means! Verily it is an admonition. (11) and whosoever wills, shall remember it. (12) upon pages high-honoured, (13) Exalted (in dignity), kept pure and holy, (14) by the hands of scribes (15) noble and most virtuous. (16) [But only too often] man destroys himself: how stubbornly does he deny the truth! (17) Of what did He create him? (18) From a drop of liquid; He created him and then set several measures for him. (19) and made the path of guidance easy for him to follow. (20) He will then send him to death and have him laid in the grave. (21) Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again). (22) By no means hath he fulfilled what Allah hath commanded him. (23) Then let man look at his food, (and how We provide it): (24) It is We Who pour forth water, pouring, (25) and let the earth to break open (26) And caused to grow within it grain (27) And grapes and herbage (28) And Olives and Dates, (29) And dense gardens, (30) and fruit and pastures, (31) Provision for you and your cattle. (32) And when the Blast shall sound, (33) On the day when a man fleeth from his brother (34) his mother, his father, (35) And from his wife and his children. (36) Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others. (37) Some faces that Day will be beaming, (38) laughing, and rejoicing, (39) And other faces that Day will be dust-stained, (40) enveloped by darkness. (41) Those, they are the unbelievers, the immoral. (42)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
