80:1  HE FROWNED AND turned away
80:2  Because a blind man came to him
80:3  What made you think that he will not grow in virtue
80:4  Or be admonished, and the admonition profit him
80:5  As for him who is not in want of any thing
80:6  You pay full attention
80:7  Though it is not your concern if he should not grow (in fulness)
80:8  As for him who comes to you striving (after goodness)
80:9  And is also fearful (of God)
80:10  You neglect
80:11  Assuredly this is a reminde
80:12  For any one who desires to bear it in mind
80:13  (Contained) in honoured pages
80:14  Exalted and holy
80:15  In the hands of scribe
80:16  Noble and pious
80:17  Accursed is man. How ungrateful is he
80:18  Of what substance God created him
80:19  From a single sperm He created, then proportioned him
80:20  Then made his passage easy (at birth)
80:21  He will then send him to death and have him laid in the grave
80:22  Then He will raise him up again when He please
80:23  But no. He has not fulfilled what was enjoined on him
80:24  Let man therefore consider (the sources of) his food
80:25  We poured down rain abundantly
80:26  Then We cracked the earth open under pressure (of germination
80:27  And We made corn grow
80:28  And grapes and herbage
80:29  Olives and dates
80:30  Orchards thick with trees
80:31  And fruits and fodder
80:32  A provision for you and your cattle
80:33  But when the great calamity come
80:34  Man will fly from his brother
80:35  Mother and father
80:36  As well as his wife and children
80:37  Each man will have enough cares that day
80:38  Many faces will that day be bright
80:39  Laughing and full of joy
80:40  And many will be dust-begrimed
80:41  Covered with the blackness (of shame)
80:42  They will be the unbelievers, transgressors
