080 He Frowned (Rukuh 01, Ayats 01-42)


Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

عَبَسَ وَتَوَلَّى (1)

[80:1] He (the Prophet) frowned and turned his face,

أَنْ جَاءَهُ الأَعْمَى (2)

[80:2] because the blind man came to him!

وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ لَعَلَّهُ يَزَّكَّى (3)

[80:3] What could tell you (O prophet about the prospects of the blind man?) May be, (if you had attended him properly,) he would have attained purity,

أَوْ يَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنْفَعَهُ الذِّكْرَى (4)

66) Constantly Missing the Friday and Congregational Prayer Without a Valid Excuse


Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah Most High says,

{The Day that the shin shall be laid bare, and they shall be summoned to prostrate, but they shall not be able. Their eyes will be cast down–ignomity will cover them, seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration, while they were whole, (and had refused).} (Al-Qalam: 42-43)

Ka’b Al-Ahbar said, this Ayah is only revealed concerning those who miss the congregational prayers.

Sa’id Ibn Al-Musayyib (may Allah have mercy on him) said, “Those people heard the call to prayer and did not respond while they were whole.”
