80:1  He frowned and turned away
80:2  that the blind man drew near him.
80:3  And what will cause thee to recognize so that perhaps he will purify himself
80:4  or yet recollect and a reminder profit him?
80:5  But as for he who was self-complacent,
80:6  then, thou hast attended to him
80:7  and not upon thee is any blame if he purifies not himself.
80:8  Yet as for him who drew near to thee, coming eagerly for knowledge
80:9  and he dreads God,
80:10  then, thou hast paid no heed to him?
80:11  No indeed! Truly, this is an admonition.
80:12  So let whoever willed, remember it
80:13  in scrolls to be held in esteem,
80:14  ones that are exalted and ones that are purified
80:15  by the hands of generous writers
80:16  and ones who are kindly, generous.
80:17  Perdition to the human being! How ungrateful he is!
80:18  From which thing did He create him?
80:19  He created him from seminal fluid then, ordained that he be.
80:20  He made the way easy for him again.
80:21  Again, He caused him to die and be buried.
80:22  Again, when He willed, He will revive him.
80:23  No indeed! The human being finishes not what He commanded him.
80:24  Then, let the human being look on his food—
80:25  how We, truly, unloosed rain water with a pouring out.
80:26  Again, We split the earth, a splitting.
80:27  And We put forth in it grain
80:28  and grapevines and reeds
80:29  and olives and date palm trees
80:30  and dense fertile gardens
80:31  and sweet fruits and whatever grows on the earth,
80:32  an enjoyment for you and your flocks.
80:33  Then, when the blare drew near,
80:34  that Day a man will run away from his brother
80:35  and his mother and his father
80:36  and his companion wife and his children.
80:37  For every man of them on that Day will be a matter that will preoccupy him.
80:38  Faces that Day will be ones that are polished,
80:39  ones who are laugh and ones who rejoice at good tidings.
80:40  And faces on that Day will be dust-stained.
80:41  Gloom will come over them.
80:42  Those, they are the ones who are ungrateful, ones who act immorally.
