Quran Quote  :  Believers, do not advance before Allah and His Messenger,and fear Allah. Verily Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. - 49:1

عَبَسَ وَتَوَلّٰٓىۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

He frowned and turned aside (1).

1. The purpose of using the form of the absent is for expression of intense love. There is Our one Beloved who has become displeased with his one servant. It should be remembered that here the shortcoming was that of Hazrat Abdullah bin Umm Maktoom who had asked a question during the conversation which was against the etiquette of respect.

The Holy prophet's expression of grief was totally correct. Therefore he called him a blind person i.e. he who is blind in overstepping the etiquette of respect for his love for the Holy Prophet.

Surah Name : Abasa   Surah Number : 80   Ayat Number: 1
Topic : Prophet Mohammad

اَنۡ جَآءَهُ الۡاَعۡمٰىؕ‏ ﴿۲﴾

Because the blind (2) man came to him.

2. It means his coming to you is an act of worship, and you should be happy about worship and not displeased. Also, that blind person reached you with much difficulty. He had no eyes so he was unable to obtain your address from anyone, otherwise the infidels would have told him. Also, because of his blindness he was unable to see the signs of anger on your illuminated face. Also, the one who has become blind out of intense love for you is fully pardoned about the etiquettes of gathering, talking without seeking permission, etc. Rules are for those who are intelligent, not for those who have lost their intellect in love. The Egyptian women cut their fingers on seeing the beautiful face of Hazrat Yusuf (On whom be peace), which was not regarded as sinful.

3. But what could convince you that he may be seeking to purify himself.

Topic : Prophet Mohammad

 اَوۡ يَذَّكَّرُ فَتَنۡفَعَهُ الذِّكۡرٰىؕ‏ ﴿۴﴾

Or, be reminded of the remembrance of Allah, may benefit (3) him.

3. Reason for its Revelation: was Once the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم inviting the leaders of the Quraish towards Islam. At this point in time, Hazrat Abdullah bin Umm Maktoom (May Allah be Pleased with him), the blind Companion, arrived. He repeatedly called upon the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم to teach him what was taught to him by Allah Almighty. This interruption Hazrat Abdullah displeased the Holy Prophet so much that its signs appeared صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم on his blessed countenance and the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم went to his house without giving any reply to Hazrat Abdullah. On that occasion these verses were revealed.

Topic : Prophet Mohammad

اَمَّا مَنِ اسۡتَغۡنٰىۙ‏ ﴿۵﴾

As to he who is careless (4).

4. From this we learn that to regard oneself totally independent of the Holy Prophet is the worst form of infidelity. Everyone is in need of the Holy Prophet. These infidels had regarded themselves independent from Allah Almighty, and indifferent to the Holy Prophet.This has been censured by Allah Almighty. It means. Why should you Oh My Beloved Prophet care about these leaders of the Quraish who are so careless and indifferent to you? You should care about these poor devotees who always regard themselves as your obedient servants.
