80:1  HE FROWNED and turned awa
80:2  because the blind man approached him
80:3  Yet for all thou didst know, [O Muhammad,] he might perhaps have grown in purity
80:4  or have been reminded [of the truth], and helped by this reminder
80:5  Now as for him who believes himself to be self-sufficien
80:6  to him didst thou give thy whole attention
80:7  although thou art not accountable for his failure to attain to purity
80:8  but as for him who came unto thee full of eagernes
80:9  and in awe [of God]
80:10  him didst thou disregard
80:11  NAY, VERILY, these [messages] are but a reminder
80:12  and so, whoever is willing may remember Hi
80:13  in [the light of His] revelations blest with dignity
80:14  lofty and pure
80:15  [borne] by the hands of messenger
80:16  noble and most virtuous
80:17  [But only too often] man destroys himself: how stubbornly does he deny the truth
80:18  [Does man ever consider] out of what substance [God] creates him
80:19  Out of a drop of sperm He creates him, and thereupon determines his nature
80:20  and then makes it easy for him to go through life
80:21  and in the end He causes him to die and brings him to the grave
80:22  and then, if it be His will, He shall raise him again to life
80:23  Nay, but [man] has never yet fulfilled what He has enjoined upon him
80:24  Let man, then, consider [the sources of] his food
80:25  [how it is] that We pour down water, pouring it down abundantly
80:26  and then We cleave the earth [with new growth], cleaving it asunder
80:27  and thereupon We cause grain to grow out of it
80:28  and vines and edible plants
80:29  and olive trees and date-palms
80:30  and gardens dense with foliage
80:31  and fruits and herbage
80:32  for you and for your animals to enjoy
80:33  AND SO, when the piercing call [of resurrection] is hear
80:34  on a Day when everyone will [want to] flee from his brother
80:35  and from his mother and father
80:36  and from his spouse and his children
80:37  on that Day, to every one of them will his own state be of sufficient concern
80:38  Some faces will on that Day be bright with happiness
80:39  laughing, rejoicing at glad tidings
80:40  And some faces will on that Day with dust be covered
80:41  with darkness overspread
80:42  these, these will be the ones who denied the truth and were immersed in iniquity
