Sura 80, He Frowned (`Abasa), Quran, Khalifa translation

Sura 80, He Frowned (`Abasa)

(from: Quran The Final Testament, by Rashad Khalifa, PhD.)

[80:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[80:1] He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away.

[80:2] When the blind man came to him.

[80:3] How do you know? He may purify himself.

[80:4] Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message.

[80:5] As for the rich man.

[80:6] You gave him your attention.

[80:7] Even though you could not guarantee his salvation.

[80:8] The one who came to you eagerly.

[80:9] And is really reverent.

[80:10] You ignored him.

[80:11] Indeed, this is a reminder.

[80:12] Whoever wills shall take heed.

[80:13] In honorable scriptures.

[80:14] Exalted and pure.

[80:15] (Written) by the hands of messengers.

[80:16] Who are honorable and righteous.

[80:17] Woe to the human being; he is so unappreciative!

[80:18] What did He create him from?

[80:19] From a tiny drop, He creates him and designs him.

[80:20] Then He points out the path for him.

[80:21] Then He puts him to death, and into the grave.

[80:22] When He wills, He resurrects him.

[80:23] He shall uphold His commandments.

[80:24] Let the human consider his food!

[80:25] We pour the water generously.

[80:26] Then we split the soil open.

[80:27] We grow in it grains.

[80:28] Grapes and pasture.

[80:29] Olives and palms.

[80:30] A variety of orchards.

[80:31] Fruits and vegetables.

[80:32] To provide life support for you and your animals.

[80:33] Then, when the blow comes to pass.

[80:34] That is the day when one flees from his brother.

[80:35] From his mother and father.

[80:36] From his spouse and children.

[80:37] Each one of them, on that day, worries about his own destiny.

[80:38] Some faces on that day will be happy.

[80:39] Laughing and joyful.

[80:40] Other faces, on that day, will be covered with misery.

[80:41] Overwhelmed by remorse.

[80:42] These are the wicked disbelievers.
