Free Quran Chapter 80: He Frowned (‘Abasa)

Learn from GOD that the prophets were not perfect, and that we shouldn’t judge people by appearance and wealth. Many Muslims believe that prophet Muhammad was a perfect being. However, they completely ignore many verses in the Quran where GOD tells us that prophet Muhammad did mistakes, just like previous prophets and messengers. And that’s okay, they were human after all. For example prophet Muhammad wasn’t always a believer, he used to worship many gods like everyone else in Mecca. But then GOD guided him because GOD saw that Muhammad honestly wanted to find the truth. Then GOD used Muhammad to deliver the final scripture to mankind. It is the same with Moses. Moses was just trying to figure out his life, he was lost, but GOD then chose Moses. From our point of view, it was completely random. But of course it wasn’t because GOD chooses carefully and with a perfect plan in mind. And that’s the point this chapter tries to make, GOD chose humans who were dealing with their own issues. We are humans, we make mistakes, only GOD is perfect. However, we shouldn’t let this discourage us. We should of course always work hard to be the best we can be.

Another point is not to judge based on looks. I have met many beautiful people, but who were completely rotten on the inside. I have met many intellectuals and highly educated, only to realize they were only repeating knowledge like parrots. I have met many people who claim they believe in GOD, only to reveal many years later that they actually never believed. So what can you take away from this? Simple, judge an individual by their actions and the way they talk, and not just on what they are saying. Pay close attention to how people talk, how they write, how they communicate and how they behave. And soon you will realize that liars are good at talking without giving you any real information. Develop your deduction skill to perfection. You should be able to map out other peoples lives by the things they say and most importantly the things they don’t say. For example, if a woman tells you that she is sterile and that she moved to a different country for many years to study and that she has met many famous people during those years. Well, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out her life story and why you definitely shouldn’t marry her. If you can’t connect the dots, here is the answer: She is a groupie, she moved to a different country to sleep with famous people, she then got chlamydia which made her sterile. If you didn’t figure this out yourself then take that as a hint that you lack experience and knowledge about the world and that you need to practice your thinking skills, such as logic, deduction and such.

Quran Chapter 80: He Frowned (‘Abasa)

[80:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[80:1] He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away.

[80:2] When the blind man came to him.

[80:3] How do you know? He may purify himself.

[80:4] Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message.

[80:5] As for the rich man.

[80:6] You gave him your attention.

[80:7] Even though you could not guarantee his salvation.

[80:8] The one who came to you eagerly.

[80:9] And is really reverent.

[80:10] You ignored him.

[80:11] Indeed, this is a reminder.

[80:12] Whoever wills shall take heed.

[80:13] In honorable scriptures.

[80:14] Exalted and pure.

[80:15] (Written) by the hands of messengers.

[80:16] Who are honorable and righteous.

[80:17] Woe to the human being; he is so unappreciative!

[80:18] What did He create him from?

[80:19] From a tiny drop, He creates him and designs him.

[80:20] Then He points out the path for him.

[80:21] Then He puts him to death, and into the grave.

[80:22] When He wills, He resurrects him.

[80:23] He shall uphold His commandments.

[80:24] Let the human consider his food!

[80:25] We pour the water generously.

[80:26] Then we split the soil open.

[80:27] We grow in it grains.

[80:28] Grapes and pasture.

[80:29] Olives and palms.

[80:30] A variety of orchards.

[80:31] Fruits and vegetables.

[80:32] To provide life support for you and your animals.

[80:33] Then, when the blow comes to pass.

[80:34] That is the day when one flees from his brother.

[80:35] From his mother and father.

[80:36] From his spouse and children.

[80:37] Each one of them, on that day, worries about his own destiny.

[80:38] Some faces on that day will be happy.

[80:39] Laughing and joyful.

[80:40] Other faces, on that day, will be covered with misery.

[80:41] Overwhelmed by remorse.

[80:42] These are the wicked disbelievers.
