80:1  He [the Prophet] frowned and turned away…
80:2  …because the blind man approached him.
80:3  How do you [O Prophet] know whether he may have corrected himself?
80:4  Or whether he may have been reminded [of God] and have benefited from the reminder?
80:5  To one who regarded himself as independent,…
80:6  …you attended.
80:7  There would have been no blame on you, however, if he did not correct himself.
80:8  As for one who approached you earnestly…
80:9  …and reverently,…
80:10  …you were too preoccupied.
80:11  That’s not right! It is indeed a reminder [that you have been given].
80:12  Therefore, whosoever will may remember it.
80:13  [It is] from pages of honor.
80:14  [It is] exalted and kept pure…
80:15  …by the hands of scribes…
80:16  …who are honorable and righteous.
80:17  Destruction to humanity! How ungrateful he/she is!
80:18  From what did (Allah) create him/her?
80:19  He created him/her from sperm, and then He molded him/her in appropriate stages.
80:20  He makes his/her path simple [by giving rules by which to live].
80:21  He causes him/her to die and be cast into the grave.
80:22  In accordance with His will, He will resurrect him/her.
80:23  Certainly, (humanity) has not fulfilled what Allah has commanded!
80:24  Humanity should consider his/her food.
80:25  [He/she should consider] how We pour water in abundance.
80:26  We fragment the earth in cracks.
80:27  From it are produced grain,…
80:28  …grapes, nutritious herbs,
80:29  olives, date palms.
80:30  [Also produced are] luxurious, enclosed gardens,…
80:31  …and fruits and fodder…
80:32  …as provision for you and your cattle.
80:33  Someday the deafening noise will come.
80:34  That day a person will flee from his/her own brother…
80:35  …and from his/her mother and father…
80:36  …and from his/her spouse and children.
80:37  Every person, that day, will have enough worries of his/her own.
80:38  Some faces that day will be beaming,…
80:39  …laughing, rejoicing.
80:40  Some faces that day will be dingy.
80:41  Darkness will cover them.
80:42  Such will be the unbelievers, the sinners.
