80:1  He, -the Messenger- frowned and turned away
80:2  When the blind man came in (and interrupted his exhortation to some of the Qurashite nobilities who tried to suppress his mission and stood in his way)
80:3  "You Muhammad do not know; he -the blind man- may well hug faith to his innermost thoughts and to his innermost being and commend his secret feelings to Allah
80:4  Or he might ponder what he learns and profit by it
80:5  But he who is rich, with abundant means at command
80:6  You give him attention, hoping he would submit
80:7  Yet you are absolved if his disbelief in Allah does not remit
80:8  But he who comes to you seeking authoritative counsel and admonition
80:9  With heart full of reverence and mindful of submission
80:10  you are unmindful of him and you give him little attention."
80:11  No indeed, but let this incident be an admonition
80:12  and he who wishes, may keep Allah in mind and imprint in his heart His Glorious Quran which conduces to piety and to contritio
80:13  A Quran recorded in Books, honoured and highly esteemed
80:14  Exalted, absolute and pure honourably deemed
80:15  Recorded by Scribes emblematic of trust
80:16  Honourable, pious and just
80:17  Accursed be man, how he fights against his own good the best he can
80:18  From what primordium did Allah create him
80:19  From a seed in fluid emitted did He create him and animate, and his dimensions and his life span, his provisions and his lot did He determine, and his intellect did He actuate.
80:20  Then He guided him to the path of safety and righteousness and his course did He facilitat
80:21  Then He occasioned his death and in the grave did He deposit and inanimate
80:22  Then when He wills, He shall resurrect him and animate
80:23  But no, he never fulfilled what Allah has commanded and ordained
80:24  Let man take a look at his food
80:25  We poured down rain-water in quantities which stream and flow
80:26  Then We split the earth and break up the soil to allow water in and vegetations to grow
80:27  Therein We grew edible grain
80:28  Grapes and herbage
80:29  Olive trees and palm-dates
80:30  Gardens of perennial and other purposeful trees
80:31  and fruits and fodder
80:32  Sustenance for you and for your cattle
80:33  Then when the deafening uproarious eventful Event* comes abou
80:34  Man shall then flee from his own brother
80:35  From his mother and his father
80:36  and from his wife and his children
80:37  For each of them then, there is enough trouble of his own
80:38  Some faces will then be beaming
80:39  Smiling and rejoicing in all seeming
80:40  Other faces will be coated with gloom
80:41  A painful depressing darkness they shall assume
80:42  These are the wicked infidels who impudently defied admonition
