80:1  He frowned and turned awa
80:2  that the blind man came to him
80:3  And what should teach thee? Perchance he would cleanse him
80:4  or yet remember, and the Reminder profit him
80:5  But the self-sufficient
80:6  to him thou attendes
80:7  though it is not thy concern, if he does not cleanse himself
80:8  And he who comes to thee eagerl
80:9  and fearfully
80:10  to him thou payest no heed
80:11  No indeed; it is a Reminde
80:12  (and whoso wills, shall remember it
80:13  upon pages high-honoured
80:14  uplifted, purified
80:15  by the hands of scribe
80:16  noble, pious
80:17  Perish Man! How unthankful he is
80:18  Of what did He create him
80:19  Of a sperm-drop He created him, and determined him
80:20  then the way eased for him
80:21  then makes him to die, and buries him
80:22  then, when He wills, He raises him
80:23  No indeed! Man has not accomplished His bidding
80:24  Let Man consider his nourishment
80:25  We poured out the rains abundantly
80:26  then We split the earth in fissure
80:27  and therein made the grains to gro
80:28  and vines, and reeds
80:29  and olives, and palms
80:30  and dense-tree'd gardens
80:31  and fruits, and pastures
80:32  an enjoyment for you and your flocks
80:33  And when the Blast shall sound
80:34  upon the day when a man shall flee from his brother
80:35  his mother, his father
80:36  his consort, his sons
80:37  every man that day shall have business to suffice him
80:38  Some faces on that day shall shin
80:39  laughing, joyous
80:40  some faces on that day shall be dust
80:41  o'erspread with darkness -
80:42  those -- they are the unbelievers, the libertines
