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
۞ He frowned and turned away 1 from a blind man who had come up to him. 2 What made you think that he will not grow in virtue, 3 (He might) remember, and the Reminder might profit him. 4 As for he who thinks himself without need, 5 So you are after him! 6 although thou art not accountable for his failure to attain to purity; 7 And as for him who cometh unto thee running, 8 and in awe of God 9 to him thou payest no heed. 10 NAY, VERILY, these [messages] are but a reminder: 11 So whoso wills may give heed to it. 12 It is set down on honoured pages, 13 exalted, purified, 14 (Set down) by scribes 15 Who are noble, virtuous. 16 Accursed be man! How stubbornly he denies the Truth. 17 Of what substance God created him? 18 From a drop of seed. He createth him and proportioneth him, 19 Then He eased the way for him; 20 Then gave him death, so had him put in the grave. 21 Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again). 22 Nay, but [man] has never yet fulfilled what He has enjoined upon him! 23 Then let man look at his food, 24 It is We Who pour forth water, pouring, 25 Then split the earth in clefts 26 Then We cause therein the grain to grow, 27 And grapes and clover, 28 And olives and date palms, 29 the densely tree'd gardens, 30 And fruits and Abba (herbage, etc.), 31 for you and for your animals to enjoy. 32 AND SO, when the piercing call [of resurrection] is heard 33 The day on which a man shall fly from his brother, 34 And from his mother and his father, 35 And his spouse and his son-- 36 Everyone on that Day will have affairs to keep him occupied. 37 Some faces will shine, 38 Laughing and full of joy, 39 some faces on that day shall be dusty 40 Blackness overcoming them. 41 These will be the faces of the sinful disbelievers. 42
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
End of Surah: He Frowned ('Abasa). Sent down in Mecca after The Stars (Al-Najm) before Destiny (Al-Qadr)
