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 Compassionate
۞ He frowned and then turned away (1) that the blind man came to him. (2) How canst thou know, whether haply he might be cleansed, (3) or receive some (Quranic) advice which would benefit him. (4) As for he who thinks himself without need, (5) to a rich man, (6) Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace). (7) But as to him who came to you running. (8) While he fears [Allah], (9) So you leave him, and are engrossed elsewhere! (10) By no means (should it be so)! For it is indeed a Message of instruction: (11) So let whosoever will pay heed to it, (12) (It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour, (13) Exalted, Purified, (14) (Set down) by scribes (15) noble and virtuous scribes. (16) Woe to man! How ungrateful he is! (17) From what substance did He create him? (18) He created him from a living germ. He determined his fate (19) Then eased the way for him. (20) then causes him to die and buries him, (21) Then when He pleases, He will raise him to life again. (22) Certainly, he has not duly fulfilled His commands. (23) Let man look at his food: (24) We poured out the rains abundantly, (25) and then We cleave the earth [with new growth,] cleaving it asunder, (26) and thereupon We cause grain to grow out of it, (27) and grape vines and vegetables, (28) And olive and palm trees (29) And gardens, dense with many trees, (30) And fruits and herbage: (31) for you and for your herds to delight in. (32) But when there comes the Deafening Blast (33) That Day shall a man flee from his brother, (34) And from his mother and father, (35) And from his wife and sons. (36) every man that day shall have business to suffice him. (37) Some faces on that Day shall be beaming with happiness, (38) laughing and joyous (39) And many will be dust-begrimed, (40) Blackness will cover them. (41) These will be the unbelievers, the wicked. (42)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
