[80.1] He frowned and
[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
[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,
[80.41] Veiled in darkness,
[80.42] Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
