80:1  He frowned and turned away
80:2  because the blind man came to him!
80:3  What will make you realize that he may [yet] be purified (of disbelief)
80:4  or even reminded, and the Reminder may benefit him?
80:5  However anyone who seems indifferent,
80:6  you will attend to.
80:7  It is not your concern whether he will purify himself (or not)!
80:8  Yet with someone who comes to you eagerly
80:9  and anxiously,
80:10  you act so distracted!
80:11  Indeed, it serves as a Reminder!
80:12  Anyone who wishes should remember how it
80:13  [exists] on honored pages
80:14  which are held aloft [for display], cleansed
80:15  by the hands of noble, virtuous scribes.
80:16  (noble, virtuous
80:17  Let man be damned! What makes him act ungrateful?
80:18  From what sort of thing did He create him?
80:19  From a drop of semen has He created him and proportioned him.
80:20  Then He made the Way easy for him;
80:21  next He will let him die and bury him.
80:22  Then [later on] He will raise him up again whenever He may wish.
80:23  Of course he does not accomplish what He orders him to.
80:24  So let man look at his own food!
80:25  We let water pour down abundantly;
80:26  then We split the earth right open
80:27  and cause grain to sprout from it,
80:28  and grapes and fodder,
80:29  olive trees, datepalms
80:30  and dense woodlots
80:31  and fruit[-trees) and pastures
80:32  as an enjoyment for both you and your livestock.
80:33  When the uproar comes
80:34  on a day when man will flee from his brother,
80:35  his mother and his father,
80:36  his mate and his children,
80:37  every last man among them will have enough concern that day to keep him occupied.
80:38  Some faces will be beaming on that day,
80:39  laughing, rejoicing;
80:40  while other faces will be covered with grime on that day,
80:41  soot will overshadow them.
80:42  Those will be the shameless disbelievers.
