Surah Abasa (He frowned) - Aya count 42
عَبَسَ وَتَوَلَّىٰۤ ﴿١﴾
(The Prophet) frowned and turned away,
أَن جَاۤءَهُ ٱلۡأَعۡمَىٰ ﴿٢﴾
Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting).
وَمَا یُدۡرِیكَ لَعَلَّهُۥ یَزَّكَّىٰۤ ﴿٣﴾
But what could tell thee but that perchance he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?-
أَوۡ یَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنفَعَهُ ٱلذِّكۡرَىٰۤ ﴿٤﴾
Or that he might receive admonition, and the teaching might profit him?
أَمَّا مَنِ ٱسۡتَغۡنَىٰ ﴿٥﴾
As to one who regards Himself as self-sufficient,
فَأَنتَ لَهُۥ تَصَدَّىٰ ﴿٦﴾
وَمَا عَلَیۡكَ أَلَّا یَزَّكَّىٰ ﴿٧﴾
Though it is no blame to thee if he grow not (in spiritual understanding).
وَأَمَّا مَن جَاۤءَكَ یَسۡعَىٰ ﴿٨﴾
But as to him who came to thee striving earnestly,
وَهُوَ یَخۡشَىٰ ﴿٩﴾
And with fear (in his heart),
فَأَنتَ عَنۡهُ تَلَهَّىٰ ﴿١٠﴾
Of him wast thou unmindful.
كَلَّاۤ إِنَّهَا تَذۡكِرَةࣱ ﴿١١﴾
By no means (should it be so)! For it is indeed a Message of instruction:
فَمَن شَاۤءَ ذَكَرَهُۥ ﴿١٢﴾
Therefore let whoso will, keep it in remembrance.
فِی صُحُفࣲ مُّكَرَّمَةࣲ ﴿١٣﴾
(It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour,
مَّرۡفُوعَةࣲ مُّطَهَّرَةِۭ ﴿١٤﴾
Exalted (in dignity), kept pure and holy,
بِأَیۡدِی سَفَرَةࣲ ﴿١٥﴾
(Written) by the hands of scribes-
كِرَامِۭ بَرَرَةࣲ ﴿١٦﴾
Honourable and Pious and Just.
قُتِلَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مَاۤ أَكۡفَرَهُۥ ﴿١٧﴾
Woe to man! What hath made him reject Allah;
مِنۡ أَیِّ شَیۡءٍ خَلَقَهُۥ ﴿١٨﴾
From what stuff hath He created him?
مِن نُّطۡفَةٍ خَلَقَهُۥ فَقَدَّرَهُۥ ﴿١٩﴾
From a sperm-drop: He hath created him, and then mouldeth him in due proportions;
ثُمَّ ٱلسَّبِیلَ یَسَّرَهُۥ ﴿٢٠﴾
Then doth He make His path smooth for him;
ثُمَّ أَمَاتَهُۥ فَأَقۡبَرَهُۥ ﴿٢١﴾
Then He causeth him to die, and putteth him in his grave;
ثُمَّ إِذَا شَاۤءَ أَنشَرَهُۥ ﴿٢٢﴾
Then, when it is His Will, He will raise him up (again).
كَلَّا لَمَّا یَقۡضِ مَاۤ أَمَرَهُۥ ﴿٢٣﴾
By no means hath he fulfilled what Allah hath commanded him.
فَلۡیَنظُرِ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ إِلَىٰ طَعَامِهِۦۤ ﴿٢٤﴾
Then let man look at his food, (and how We provide it):
أَنَّا صَبَبۡنَا ٱلۡمَاۤءَ صَبࣰّا ﴿٢٥﴾
For that We pour forth water in abundance,
ثُمَّ شَقَقۡنَا ٱلۡأَرۡضَ شَقࣰّا ﴿٢٦﴾
And We split the earth in fragments,
فَأَنۢبَتۡنَا فِیهَا حَبࣰّا ﴿٢٧﴾
And produce therein corn,
وَعِنَبࣰا وَقَضۡبࣰا ﴿٢٨﴾
And Grapes and nutritious plants,
وَزَیۡتُونࣰا وَنَخۡلࣰا ﴿٢٩﴾
وَحَدَاۤىِٕقَ غُلۡبࣰا ﴿٣٠﴾
And enclosed Gardens, dense with lofty trees,
وَفَـٰكِهَةࣰ وَأَبࣰّا ﴿٣١﴾
مَّتَـٰعࣰا لَّكُمۡ وَلِأَنۡعَـٰمِكُمۡ ﴿٣٢﴾
For use and convenience to you and your cattle.
فَإِذَا جَاۤءَتِ ٱلصَّاۤخَّةُ ﴿٣٣﴾
At length, when there comes the Deafening Noise,-
یَوۡمَ یَفِرُّ ٱلۡمَرۡءُ مِنۡ أَخِیهِ ﴿٣٤﴾
That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,
وَأُمِّهِۦ وَأَبِیهِ ﴿٣٥﴾
And from his mother and his father,
وَصَـٰحِبَتِهِۦ وَبَنِیهِ ﴿٣٦﴾
And from his wife and his children.
لِكُلِّ ٱمۡرِئࣲ مِّنۡهُمۡ یَوۡمَىِٕذࣲ شَأۡنࣱ یُغۡنِیهِ ﴿٣٧﴾
Each one of them, that Day, will have enough concern (of his own) to make him indifferent to the others.
وُجُوهࣱ یَوۡمَىِٕذࣲ مُّسۡفِرَةࣱ ﴿٣٨﴾
Some faces that Day will be beaming,
ضَاحِكَةࣱ مُّسۡتَبۡشِرَةࣱ ﴿٣٩﴾
وَوُجُوهࣱ یَوۡمَىِٕذٍ عَلَیۡهَا غَبَرَةࣱ ﴿٤٠﴾
And other faces that Day will be dust-stained,
تَرۡهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ ﴿٤١﴾
Blackness will cover them:
أُوْلَــٰۤىِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡكَفَرَةُ ٱلۡفَجَرَةُ ﴿٤٢﴾
Such will be the Rejecters of Allah, the doers of iniquity.
