Sura Abasa (He Frowned)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    80:1-4 He frowned and turned away because the blind man came to him. What could inform you that perhaps he might become pure of his sin or take heed and so the reminder might avail him?

    80:5-10 As for him who thinks himself independent, to him you pay regard. Yet it is not your concern if he becomes not pure of his sin. But as for him who comes to you with earnest purpose and has fear, from him you are distracted.

    80:11-16 Nay, but verily it is an admonishment, so let whosoever will pay heed to it, on honored leaves exalted, purified, (set down) by scribes noble and righteous.

    80:17-19 Man is (self-) destroyed: how ungrateful! From what thing does He create him? From a drop of seed. He creates him and proportions him,

    80:20-23 Then makes the way easy for him, then causes him to die, and buries him; then, when He wills, He brings him to life again. Nay, but (man) has not done what He commanded him.

    80:24-32 Let man consider his food: How We pour water in showers, then split the earth in clefts and cause the grain to grow therein, and grapes and green fodder, and olive trees and palm trees, and garden-closes of thick foliage, and fruits and grasses: Provision for you and your cattle.

    80:33-37 But when the Shout comes on the Day when a man flees from his brother, and his mother and his father, and his wife and his children, every man that Day will have concern enough to make him heedless (of others).

    80:38-42 On that Day faces will be bright as dawn, laughing, rejoicing at good news; and other faces, on that Day, with dust upon them, veiled in darkness, those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
