80:1  Someone frowned and turned away
80:2  Because the blind man approached him
80:3  How could you know that he might have grown in goodness
80:4  Or that he be enlightened and the Reminder might benefit him
80:5  As for him who deems himself in no need of Guidance
80:6  Unto him you give attention
80:7  Yet it is not your responsibility if he grows not in goodness
80:8  But as for him who came to you in all eagerness
80:9  And feared straying. (2:2)
80:10  Him did you disregard
80:11  Nay, indeed this is an Advisory
80:12  So let him pay heed who will
80:13  In Scrolls Dignified
80:14  Exalted, Purified
80:15  By the hands of Scribes
80:16  Honorable and virtuous
80:17  Man destroys himself, how ungrateful, rejecting the Sublime Truth
80:18  Out of what thing has He created him
80:19  From the male and the female gametes He created him, and then fashioned him in due proportion
80:20  And then makes the Way easy for him. (Endowed with faculties)
80:21  Then causes him to die and brings him to disintegrated states. ('Qabr' = Grave = Disintegrated state = The state of sleep between physical death and Resurrection (36:52))
80:22  Then, when He will, He shall raise him to life again
80:23  Nay, man did not fulfill what He enjoined upon him
80:24  Let man consider his food. (His own food has involved so many hands from the field to the mouth. Shouldn't he share Our provision with others?
80:25  How We pour water in showers
80:26  And then We split the earth, split and cleave
80:27  And cause the grain to grow therein
80:28  And vineyards, and fresh vegetation
80:29  And olive trees and palm trees
80:30  And dense beautiful gardens
80:31  And fruits and grasses
80:32  Provision for you and your cattle
80:33  But when comes the Call
80:34  On the Day when a man will flee from his brother
80:35  And his mother and his father
80:36  And his wife and his children
80:37  To everyone on that Day will be enough his own concern
80:38  Some faces on that Day will be bright as dawn
80:39  Laughing, rejoicing at good news
80:40  And some faces on that Day will have dust upon them
80:41  With gloom overspread
80:42  These, these will be the ones who denied the Truth and divided humanity
