Surah Abasa with English translation

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

80:1 عَبَسَ وَتَوَلَّىٰ

The Prophet frowned and turned away

80:2 أَنْ جَاءَهُ الْأَعْمَىٰ

Because there came to him the blind man, [interrupting].

80:3 وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ لَعَلَّهُ يَزَّكَّىٰ

But what would make you perceive, [O Muhammad], that perhaps he might be purified

80:4 أَوْ يَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنْفَعَهُ الذِّكْرَىٰ

Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him?

80:5 أَمَّا مَنِ اسْتَغْنَىٰ

As for he who thinks himself without need,

80:6 فَأَنْتَ لَهُ تَصَدَّىٰ

To him you give attention.

80:7 وَمَا عَلَيْكَ أَلَّا يَزَّكَّىٰ

And not upon you [is any blame] if he will not be purified.

80:8 وَأَمَّا مَنْ جَاءَكَ يَسْعَىٰ

But as for he who came to you striving [for knowledge]

80:9 وَهُوَ يَخْشَىٰ

While he fears [Allah],

80:10 فَأَنْتَ عَنْهُ تَلَهَّىٰ

From him you are distracted.

80:11 كَلَّا إِنَّهَا تَذْكِرَةٌ

No! Indeed, these verses are a reminder;

80:12 فَمَنْ شَاءَ ذَكَرَهُ

So whoever wills may remember it.

80:13 فِي صُحُفٍ مُكَرَّمَةٍ

[It is recorded] in honored sheets,

80:14 مَرْفُوعَةٍ مُطَهَّرَةٍ

Exalted and purified,

80:15 بِأَيْدِي سَفَرَةٍ

[Carried] by the hands of messenger-angels,

80:16 كِرَامٍ بَرَرَةٍ

Noble and dutiful.

80:17 قُتِلَ الْإِنْسَانُ مَا أَكْفَرَهُ

Cursed is man; how disbelieving is he.

80:18 مِنْ أَيِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ

From what substance did He create him?

80:19 مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ خَلَقَهُ فَقَدَّرَهُ

From a sperm-drop He created him and destined for him;

80:20 ثُمَّ السَّبِيلَ يَسَّرَهُ

Then He eased the way for him;

80:21 ثُمَّ أَمَاتَهُ فَأَقْبَرَهُ

Then He causes his death and provides a grave for him.

80:22 ثُمَّ إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْشَرَهُ

Then when He wills, He will resurrect him.

80:23 كَلَّا لَمَّا يَقْضِ مَا أَمَرَهُ

No! Man has not yet accomplished what He commanded him.

80:24 فَلْيَنْظُرِ الْإِنْسَانُ إِلَىٰ طَعَامِهِ

Then let mankind look at his food –

80:25 أَنَّا صَبَبْنَا الْمَاءَ صَبًّا

How We poured down water in torrents,

80:26 ثُمَّ شَقَقْنَا الْأَرْضَ شَقًّا

Then We broke open the earth, splitting [it with sprouts],

80:27 فَأَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا حَبًّا

And caused to grow within it grain

80:28 وَعِنَبًا وَقَضْبًا

And grapes and herbage

80:29 وَزَيْتُونًا وَنَخْلًا

And olive and palm trees

80:30 وَحَدَائِقَ غُلْبًا

And gardens of dense shrubbery

80:31 وَفَاكِهَةً وَأَبًّا

And fruit and grass –

80:32 مَتَاعًا لَكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَامِكُمْ

[As] enjoyment for you and your grazing livestock.

80:33 فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الصَّاخَّةُ

But when there comes the Deafening Blast

80:34 يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ

On the Day a man will flee from his brother

80:35 وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ

And his mother and his father

80:36 وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ

And his wife and his children,

80:37 لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ

For every man, that Day, will be a matter adequate for him.

80:38 وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُسْفِرَةٌ

[Some] faces, that Day, will be bright –

80:39 ضَاحِكَةٌ مُسْتَبْشِرَةٌ

Laughing, rejoicing at good news.

80:40 وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ

And [other] faces, that Day, will have upon them dust.

80:41 تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ

Blackness will cover them.

80:42 أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَفَرَةُ الْفَجَرَةُ

Those are the disbelievers, the wicked ones.
