80:1 HE FROWNED and turned away
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
80:1 He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away.,
Shabbir Ahmed (Quran As It Explains Itself)
80:1 Would he (the caller to truth) frown and turn away,1

Note 1


This is the 80th Surah of the Qur’an. It has 42 verses.



Unfortunately, most commentators maintain that the exalted Messenger frowned upon a blind, poor but sincere seeker of the truth. The reason for this grievous mistake is, once again, blind following of false traditions, and the conjecture of Shan-e-Nuzool (the so-assumed circumstances of a revelation).



Surah ‘Abasa does not name the person who frowned. Through Tasreef, it becomes obvious that a proud Qureshite leader was in the habit of frowning at people (74:22). Hadith names him as an archenemy Waleed bin Mugheera. ‘Abasa (80:1), then, actually addresses the arrogant and all those who would like to invite people to God. Assigning this incident to the exalted Messenger is one of the old conspiracies against Islam.



God’s Messengers invariably paid special attention to the poor, the disabled, the deprived, and always refused to turn them away even though pressured by the elite to do so. [6:52, 8:62, 11:27, 18:28, 26:111]



Another example of such obnoxious fallacy is found in most expositions of Surah 24, An-Noor, in which no names or even a hint is given, yet most exponents insist that it was the mother of believers, Ayesha r.a. who was slandered! - Again because of the ‘Shan-e Nuzool’ conjecture.



With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

Edip-Layth (Quran: A Reformist Translation)
80:2 When the blind one came to him.
The Monotheist Group (The Quran: A Monotheist Translation)
80:2 When the blind one came to him.
Muhammad Asad (The Message Of Quran)
80:2 because the blind man approached him!1

Note 1
One day, as recorded in many well-authenticated Traditions, the Prophet was engrossed in a conversation with some of the most influential chieftains of pagan Mecca, hoping to convince them - and, through them, the Meccan community at large - of the truth of his message. At that point, he was approached by one of his followers, the blind Abd Allah ibn Shurayh - known after his grandmother's name as Ibn Umm Maktum - with the request for a repetition or elucidation of certain earlier passages of the Qur'an. Annoyed by this interruption of what he momentarily regarded as a more important endeavour, Muhammad "frowned and turned away" from the blind man - and was immediately, there and then, reproved by the revelation of the first ten verses of this surah. In later years he often greeted Ibn Umm Maktum with these words of humility: "Welcome unto him on whose account my Sustainer has rebuked me (atabani)!" Indirectly, the sharp Qur'anic rebuke (stressed, in particular, by the use of the third-person form in verses 1-2) implies, firstly, that what would have been a minor act of discourtesy on the part of an ordinary human being, assumed the aspect of a major sin, deserving a divine rebuke, when committed by a prophet; and, secondly, it illustrates the objective nature of the Qur'anic revelation: for, obviously, in conveying God's reproof of him to the world at large, the Prophet "does not speak out of his own desire" (cf. 53:3).
Rashad Khalifa (The Final Testament)
80:2 When the blind man came to him.,

80:2 If the blind (to the truth) approached him?

Note 8
In other words, man has failed to make adequate use of the intellectual and spiritual endowment referred to in verse 20. Whereas some commentators are of the opinion that this relates only to the type of man spoken of in verse 17 above, others maintain, with greater plausibility, that it is a reference to man in general - thus: "No human being has ever fulfilled all that was imposed on him as a [moral] duty" (Mujahid, as quoted by Tabari, with a similar statement attributed by Baghawi to Al-Hasan al-Basri); or "From the time of Adam to this time, no human being has ever been free of shortcomings" (Zamakhshari, Baghawi). This is in tune with the Qur'anic doctrine that perfection is an attribute of God alone.
