Surah 80. He Frowned!
80:1. (The Prophet) frowned and turned away,
80:2. Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting).
80:3. But what could tell thee but that perhaps he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?-
80:4. Or that he might receive advice, and the teaching might profit him?
80:5. As to one who regards himself as self-sufficient,
80:6. To him dost thou attend;
80:7. Though it is no blame to thee if he grow not (in spiritual understanding).
80:8. But as to him who came to thee striving earnestly,
80:9. And with fear (in his heart),
80:10. Of him wast thou inattentive.
80:11. By no means (should it be so)! For it is indeed a Message of instruction:
80:12. Therefore let whoso will, keep it in remembrance.
80:13. (It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour,
80:14. Exalted (in dignity), kept pure and holy,
80:15. (Written) by the hands of scribes-
80:16. Honourable and Pious and Just.
80:17. Woe to man! What hath made him reject "I AM"?
80:18. From what stuff hath He created him?
80:19. From a sperm-drop: He hath created him, and then mouldeth him in due proportions;
80:20. Then doth He make His Way smooth for him;
80:21. Then He causeth him to die, and putteth him in his Grave;
80:22. Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again).
80:23. By no means hath he fulfilled what "I AM" hath commanded him.
80:24. Then let man look at his Food, (and how We provide it):
80:25. For that We pour forth water in abundance,
80:26. And We split the earth in fragments,
80:27. And produce therein Corn,
80:28. And Grapes and nutritious Plants,
80:29. And Olives and Dates,
80:30. And enclosed Gardens, dense with lofty trees,
80:31. And Fruits and Fodder,-
80:32. For use and convenience to you and your cattle.
80:33. At length, when there comes the Deafening Noise,-
80:34. That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,
80:35. And from his mother and his father,
80:36. And from his wife and his children.
80:37. Each one of them, that Day, will have enough concern (of his own) to make him indifferent to the others.
80:38. Some Faces that Day will be beaming,
80:39. Laughing, rejoicing.
80:40. And other faces that Day will be dust-stained,
80:41. Blackness will cover them:
80:42. Such will be the Rejecters of "I AM", the Doers of Iniquity.
