بِسْمِ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the name of God, the Almighty,1 the Merciful.

عَبَسَ وَتَوَلَّىٰٓ

802

1 He frowned and turned away

أَن جَآءَهُ ٱلْأَعْمَىٰ

2 That the blind man came to him.

وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ لَعَلَّهُۥ يَزَّكَّىٰٓ

3 And what can make thee know1 — he might purify himself,

أَوْ يَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنفَعَهُ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰٓ

4 Or take heed, and the reminder benefit him?

أَمَّا مَنِ ٱسْتَغْنَىٰ

5 As for him who is self-sufficient:1

فَأَنتَ لَهُۥ تَصَدَّىٰ

6 To him thou attendest,

وَمَا عَلَيْكَ أَلَّا يَزَّكَّىٰ

7 But not upon thee1 is it if he does not purify himself.

وَأَمَّا مَن جَآءَكَ يَسْعَىٰ

8 And as for him who comes to thee, striving1

وَهُوَ يَخْشَىٰ

9 And in fear:1

فَأَنتَ عَنْهُ تَلَهَّىٰ

10 From him thou art distracted.

كَلَّآ إِنَّهَا تَذْكِرَةٌ

11 No, indeed!1 It is a reminder,

فَمَن شَآءَ ذَكَرَهُۥ

12 So whoso wills might remember it,

فِى صُحُفٍ مُّكَرَّمَةٍ

13 In honoured pages,1

مَّرْفُوعَةٍ مُّطَهَّرَةٍۭ

14 Exalted and purified,

بِأَيْدِى سَفَرَةٍ

15 By the hands of scribes

كِرَامٍۭ بَرَرَةٍ

16 Noble and virtuous.

قُتِلَ ٱلْإِنسَـٰنُ مَآ أَكْفَرَهُۥ

17 Damned be1 man! How denying2 he is!

مِنْ أَىِّ شَىْءٍ خَلَقَهُۥ

18 From what did He create him?

مِن نُّطْفَةٍ خَلَقَهُۥ فَقَدَّرَهُۥ

19 From a sperm-drop He created him, and determined him;

ثُمَّ ٱلسَّبِيلَ يَسَّرَهُۥ

20 Then He made the path easy for him;

ثُمَّ أَمَاتَهُۥ فَأَقْبَرَهُۥ

21 Then He gives him death and buries him;

ثُمَّ إِذَا شَآءَ أَنشَرَهُۥ

22 Then, when He wills, He resurrects him.

كَلَّا لَمَّا يَقْضِ مَآ أَمَرَهُۥ

23 No, indeed!1 He2 has not accomplished what He commanded him.

فَلْيَنظُرِ ٱلْإِنسَـٰنُ إِلَىٰ طَعَامِهِۦٓ

24 So let man look at his food: —

أَنَّا صَبَبْنَا ٱلْمَآءَ صَبًّا

25 That We poured water in showers;1

ثُمَّ شَقَقْنَا ٱلْأَرْضَ شَقًّا

26 Then We split the earth in cracks,1

فَأَنۢبَتْنَا فِيهَا حَبًّا

27 And We caused to grow therein grain,

وَعِنَبًا وَقَضْبًا

28 And grapes, and herbage,

وَزَيْتُونًا وَنَخْلًا

29 And olives, and date-palms,

وَحَدَآئِقَ غُلْبًا

30 And gardens dense with foliage,

وَفَـٰكِهَةً وَأَبًّا

31 And fruits, and grass,

مَّتَـٰعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَـٰمِكُمْ

32 As enjoyment for you and your cattle.

فَإِذَا جَآءَتِ ٱلصَّآخَّةُ

33 Then when there comes the Blast:1

يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ ٱلْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ

34 The day a man will flee from his brother,

وَأُمِّهِۦ وَأَبِيهِ

35 And his mother, and his father,

وَصَـٰحِبَتِهِۦ وَبَنِيهِ

36 And his consort, and his sons,

لِكُلِّ ٱمْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ

37 Every man of them, that day, will have an involvement to suffice him.

وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُّسْفِرَةٌ

38 Faces, that day, will be bright,

ضَاحِكَةٌ مُّسْتَبْشِرَةٌ

39 Laughing, rejoicing at glad tidings.

وَوُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ

40 And faces, that day, upon them will be dust,

تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ

41 Blackness1 will cover them;

أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْكَفَرَةُ ٱلْفَجَرَةُ

42 It is they who are the deniers, the immoral.
