80:1 - He frowned and turned away
80:2 - Because the blind man came unto him.
80:3 - What could inform thee but that he might grow (in grace)
80:4 - Or take heed and so the reminder might avail him?
80:5 - As for him who thinketh himself independent,
80:6 - Unto him thou payest regard.
80:7 - Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace).
80:8 - But as for him who cometh unto thee with earnest purpose
80:9 - And hath fear,
80:10 - From him thou art distracted.
80:11 - Nay, but verily it is an Admonishment,
80:12 - So let whosoever will pay heed to it,
80:13 - On honoured leaves
80:14 - Exalted, purified,
80:15 - (Set down) by scribes
80:16 - Noble and righteous.
80:17 - Man is (self-)destroyed: how ungrateful!
80:18 - From what thing doth He create him?
80:19 - From a drop of seed. He createth him and proportioneth him,
80:20 - Then maketh the way easy for him,
80:21 - Then causeth him to die, and burieth him;
80:22 - Then, when He will, He bringeth him again to life.
80:23 - Nay, but (man) hath not done what He commanded him.
80:24 - Let man consider his food:
80:25 - How We pour water in showers
80:26 - Then split the earth in clefts
80:27 - And cause the grain to grow therein
80:28 - And grapes and green fodder
80:29 - And olive-trees and palm-trees
80:30 - And garden-closes of thick foliage
80:31 - And fruits and grasses:
80:32 - Provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 - But when the Shout cometh
80:34 - On the day when a man fleeth from his brother
80:35 - And his mother and his father
80:36 - And his wife and his children,
80:37 - Every man that day will have concern enough to make him heedless (of others).
80:38 - On that day faces will be bright as dawn,
80:39 - Laughing, rejoicing at good news;
80:40 - And other faces, on that day, with dust upon them,
80:41 - Veiled in darkness,
80:42 - Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
