Surah ‘Abasa 80:11-42

80:11 Nay, Verily, these [messages] are but a reminder. 

80;12 And so, whoever is willing may remember Him. 

80:13 In [the light of His] revelations blest with dignity. 

80;14 Lofty and pure. 

80:15 [Borne] by the hands of messengers. 

80:16 Noble and most virtuous.

80:17 [But only too often] man destroys himself, how stubbornly does he deny the truth!

80:18 [Does man ever consider] out of what substance [God] creates him?

80:19 Out of a drop of sperm He creates him, and thereupon determines his nature.

80;20 And then makes it easy for him to go through life.

80:21 And in the end He causes him to die and brings him to the grave. 

80:22 And then, if it be His will, He shall raise him again to life. 

80:23 Nay, but [man] has never yet fulfilled what He has enjoined upon him.

80:24 Let man, then, consider [the sources of] his food. 

80:25 [How it is] that We pour down water, pouring it down abundantly. 

80:26 And then We cleave the earth [with new growth], cleaving it asunder.

80:27 And thereupon We cause grain to grow out of it 

80:28 And vines and edible plants

80:29 And olive trees and date-palms 

80:30 And gardens dense with foliage 

80:31 And fruits and herbage 

80:32 For you and for your animals to enjoy.

80:33 And So, when the piercing call [of resurrection] is heard. 

80:34 On a Day when everyone will [want to] flee from his brother 

80:35 And from his mother and father 

80:36 And from his spouse and his children 

80:37 On that Day, to every one of them will his own state be of sufficient concern.

80:38 Some faces will on that Day be bright with happiness 

80:39 Laughing, rejoicing at glad tidings...

80:40 And some faces will on that Day with dust be covered 

80:41 With darkness overspread 

80:42 These, these will be the ones who denied the truth and were immersed in iniquity!


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
