Qur'an - Translation
He Frowned

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[80.1] He frowned and turned (his) back,

[80.2] Because there came to him the blind man.

[80.3] And what would make you know that he would purify himself,

[80.4] Or become reminded so that the reminder should profit him?

[80.5] As for him who considers himself free from need (of you),

[80.6] To him do you address yourself.

[80.7] And no blame is on you if he would not purify himself.

[80.8] And as to him who comes to you striving hard,

[80.9] And he fears,

[80.10] From him will you divert yourself.

[80.11] Nay! surely it is an admonishment.

[80.12] So let him who pleases mind it.

[80.13] In honored books,

[80.14] Exalted, purified,

[80.15] In the hands of scribes,

[80.16] Noble, virtuous.

[80.17] Cursed be man! how ungrateful is he!

[80.18] Of what thing did He create him?

[80.19] Of a small seed; He created him, then He made him according to a measure,

[80.20] Then (as for) the way -- He has made it easy (for him),

[80.21] Then He causes him to die, then assigns to him a grave,

[80.22] Then when He pleases, He will raise him to life again.

[80.23] Nay; but he has not done what He bade him.

[80.24] Then let man look to his food,

[80.25] That We pour down the water, pouring (it) down in abundance,

[80.26] Then We cleave the earth, cleaving (it) asunder,

[80.27] Then We cause to grow therein the grain,

[80.28] And grapes and clover,

[80.29] And the olive and the palm,

[80.30] And thick gardens,

[80.31] And fruits and herbage,

[80.32] A provision for you and for your cattle.

[80.33] But when the deafening cry comes,

[80.34] The day on which a man shall fly from his brother,

[80.35] And his mother and his father,

[80.36] And his spouse and his son --

[80.37] Every man of them shall on that day have an affair which will occupy him.

[80.38] (Many) faces on that day shall be bright,

[80.39] Laughing, joyous.

[80.40] And (many) faces on that day, on them shall be dust,

[80.41] Darkness shall cover them.

[80.42] These are they who are unbelievers, the wicked.
