80: He Frowned

80:1 He frowned and turned away
80:2 Because the blind man came unto him.
80:3 What could inform thee but that he might grow (in grace)
80:4 Or take heed and so the reminder might avail him ?
80:5 As for him who thinketh himself independent,
80:6 Unto him thou payest regard.
80:7 Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace).
80:8 But as for him who cometh unto thee with earnest purpose
80:9 And hath fear,
80:10 From him thou art distracted.
80:11 Nay, but verily it is an Admonishment,
80:12 So let whosoever will pay heed to it,
80:13 On honoured leaves
80:14 Exalted, purified,
80:15 (Set down) by scribes
80:16 Noble and righteous.
80:17 Man is (self-)destroyed: how ungrateful!
80:18 From what thing doth He create him ?
80:19 From a drop of seed. He createth him and proportioneth him,
80:20 Then maketh the way easy for him,
80:21 Then causeth him to die, and burieth him;
80:22 Then, when He will, He bringeth him again to life.
80:23 Nay, but (man) hath not done what He commanded him.
80:24 Let man consider his food:
80:25 How We pour water in showers
80:26 Then split the earth in clefts
80:27 And cause the grain to grow therein
80:28 And grapes and green fodder
80:29 And olive-trees and palm-trees
80:30 And garden-closes of thick foliage
80:31 And fruits and grasses:
80:32 Provision for you and your cattle.
80:33 But when the Shout cometh
80:34 On the day when a man fleeth from his brother
80:35 And his mother and his father
80:36 And his wife and his children,
80:37 Every man that day will have concern enough to make him heedless (of others).
80:38 On that day faces will be bright as dawn,
80:39 Laughing, rejoicing at good news;
80:40 And other faces, on that day, with dust upon them, Disbelievers are wicked people. On the last day they will be in darkness and have dust on their faces.
80:41 Veiled in darkness,
80:42 Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
