Meaning of Quran

‘Abasa | He Frowned

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[80:1]
He (the Prophet) frowned and turned his face,

[80:2]
because the blind man came to him!

[80:3]
What could tell you (O prophet about the prospects of the blind man?) May be, (if you had attended him properly,) he would have attained purity,

[80:4]
or have received the advice, and the advice would have benefited him.

[80:5]
As for the one who does not care (about faith),

[80:6]
you are anxious to pursue him,

[80:7]
while there is no blame on you, if he does not attain purity.

[80:8]
As regards the one who has come to you rushing eagerly,

[80:9]
while he fears (Allah),

[80:10]
to him you pay no heed!

[80:11]
Never! (you should never act in this way,) Indeed this (Qur‘an) is an advice.

[80:12]
So, whoever so wills may pay heed to it.

[80:13]
It is (recorded) in those scripts (of the Preserved Tablet) that are honoured,

[80:14]
exalted, purified,

[80:15]
in the hands of those scribes

[80:16]
who are honorable, righteous.

[80:17]
Damned is the man! How ungrateful he is!

[80:18]
From which stuff did He (Allah) create him?

[80:19]
from a drop of semen! He created him, and designed him in due proportion,

[80:20]
then He made the way easy for him,

[80:21]
Later, he made him die, and put him into grave,

[80:22]
Thereafter, when He will intend, He will raise him up.

[80:23]
No! He has not yet fulfilled what He (Allah) had commanded him.

[80:24]
So, the man should consider his food,

[80:25]
how well We poured water,

[80:26]
then how nicely We split the earth,

[80:27]
then We grew in it grain,

[80:28]
and grapes and greens,

[80:29]
and olive and date-palms,

[80:30]
and gardens, full of thick trees,

[80:31]
and fruits and fodder,

[80:32]
as a benefit for you and your cattle.

[80:33]
So when the Deafening Noise will occur,

[80:34]
the Day when one will flee from his brother,

[80:35]
and from his mother and father,

[80:36]
and from his wife and sons,

[80:37]
every one of them will be too engaged in his own affairs to care for others.

[80:38]
Many faces, on that day, will be bright,

[80:39]
laughing, rejoicing,

[80:40]
and many faces, on that day, will be stained with dust,

[80:41]
covered by darkness.

[80:42]
Those are the disbelievers, the nefarious.
