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)
