80:1  He frowned and turned away
80:2  because the blind man came to him.
80:3  But how do you know? Perhaps he would be purified
80:4  or reminded, and the reminder benefit him.
80:5  As for him who thinks himself self-sufficient,
80:6  you give him your complete attention,
80:7  but it is not up to you whether or not he is purified.
80:8  But as for him who comes to you eagerly
80:9  showing fearfulness,
80:10  from him you are distracted.
80:11  No indeed! Truly it is a reminder,
80:12  and whoever wills pays heed to it.
80:13  Inscribed on Honoured Pages,
80:14  exalted, purified
80:15  by the hands of scribes,
80:16  noble, virtuous.
80:17  Curse man for his ingratitude!
80:18  From what thing did He create him?
80:19  From a drop of sperm He created him and proportioned him.
80:20  Then He eases the way for him.
80:21  Then He causes him to die and buries him.
80:22  Then, when He wills, He raises him from the dead.
80:23  No indeed! He has not done what He ordered him.
80:24  Man has only to look at his food.
80:25  We pour down plentiful water,
80:26  then split the earth into furrows.
80:27  Then We make grain grow in it,
80:28  and grapes and herbs
80:29  and olives and dates
80:30  and luxuriant gardens
80:31  and orchards and meadows,
80:32  for you and your livestock to enjoy.
80:33  When the Deafening Blast comes,
80:34  the Day 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  on that Day every man among them will have concerns enough of his own.
80:38  That Day some faces will be radiant,
80:39  laughing, rejoicing.
80:40  That Day some faces will be dust-covered,
80:41  overcast with gloom.
80:42  Those are the dissolute kafirun.
