Surah 80

‘Abasa
Surah 80. He Frowned!

 

80:1 (The Prophet) frowned and turned away,
AAabasa watawalla
80:2 Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting).
An jaahu al-aAAma
80:3 But what could tell thee but that perchance he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?-
Wama yudreeka laAAallahu yazzakka
80:4 Or that he might receive admonition, and the teaching might profit him?
Aw yaththakkaru fatanfaAAahu alththikra
80:5 As to one who regards Himself as self-sufficient,
Amma mani istaghna
80:6 To him dost thou attend;
Faanta lahu tasadda
80:7 Though it is no blame to thee if he grow not (in spiritual understanding).
Wama AAalayka alla yazzakka
80:8 But as to him who came to thee striving earnestly,
Waamma man jaaka yasAAa
80:9 And with fear (in his heart),
Wahuwa yakhsha
80:10 Of him wast thou unmindful.
Faanta AAanhu talahha
80:11 By no means (should it be so)! For it is indeed a Message of instruction:
Kalla innaha tathkiratun
80:12 Therefore let whoso will, keep it in remembrance.
Faman shaa thakarahu
80:13 (It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour,
Fee suhufin mukarramatin
80:14 Exalted (in dignity), kept pure and holy,
MarfooAAatin mutahharatin
80:15 (Written) by the hands of scribes-
Bi-aydee safaratin
80:16 Honourable and Pious and Just.
Kiramin bararatin
80:17 Woe to man! What hath made him reject Allah;
Qutila al-insanu ma akfarahu
80:18 From what stuff hath He created him?
Min ayyi shay-in khalaqahu
80:19 From a sperm-drop: He hath created him, and then mouldeth him in due proportions;
Min nutfatin khalaqahu faqaddarahu
80:20 Then doth He make His path smooth for him;
Thumma alssabeela yassarahu
80:21 Then He causeth him to die, and putteth him in his grave;
Thumma amatahu faaqbarahu
80:22 Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again).
Thumma itha shaa ansharahu
80:23 By no means hath he fulfilled what Allah hath commanded him.
Kalla lamma yaqdi maamarahu
80:24 Then let man look at his food, (and how We provide it):
Falyanthuri al-insanuila taAAamihi
80:25 For that We pour forth water in abundance,
Anna sababna almaasabban
80:26 And We split the earth in fragments,
Thumma shaqaqna al-arda shaqqan
80:27 And produce therein corn,
Faanbatna feeha habban
80:28 And Grapes and nutritious plants,
WaAAinaban waqadban
80:29 And Olives and Dates,
Wazaytoonan wanakhlan
80:30 And enclosed Gardens, dense with lofty trees,
Wahada-iqa ghulban
80:31 And fruits and fodder,-
Wafakihatan waabban
80:32 For use and convenience to you and your cattle.
MataAAan lakum wali-anAAamikum
80:33 At length, when there comes the Deafening Noise,-
Fa-itha jaati alssakhkhatu
80:34 That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,
Yawma yafirru almaro min akheehi
80:35 And from his mother and his father,
Waommihi waabeehi
80:36 And from his wife and his children.
Wasahibatihi wabaneehi
80:37 Each one of them, that Day, will have enough concern (of his own) to make him indifferent to the others.
Likulli imri-in minhum yawma-ithinsha/nun yughneehi
80:38 Some faces that Day will be beaming,
Wujoohun yawma-ithin musfiratun
80:39 Laughing, rejoicing.
Dahikatun mustabshiratun
80:40 And other faces that Day will be dust-stained,
Wawujoohun yawma-ithin AAalayhaghabaratun
80:41 Blackness will cover them:
Tarhaquha qataratun
80:42 Such will be the Rejecters of Allah, the doers of iniquity.
