Order of revelation: 24

 

[80:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[80:1]  He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away.

 

[80:2]  When the blind man came to him.

 

[80:3]  How do you know? He may purify himself.

 

[80:4]  Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message.

 

[80:5]  As for the rich man.

 

[80:6]  You gave him your attention.

 

[80:7]  Even though you could not guarantee his salvation.

 

[80:8]  The one who came to you eagerly.

 

[80:9]  And is really reverent.

 

[80:10]  You ignored him.

 

[80:11]  Indeed, this is a reminder.

 

[80:12]  Whoever wills shall take heed.

 

[80:13]  In honorable scriptures.

 

[80:14]  Exalted and pure.

 

[80:15]  (Written) by the hands of messengers.

 

[80:16]  Who are honorable and righteous.

 

[80:17]  Woe to the human being; he is so unappreciative!

 

[80:18]  What did He create him from?

 

[80:19]  From a tiny drop, He creates him and designs him.

 

[80:20]  Then He points out the path for him.

 

[80:21]  Then He puts him to death, and into the grave.

 

[80:22]  When He wills, He resurrects him.

 

[80:23]  He shall uphold His commandments.

 

[80:24]  Let the human consider his food!

 

[80:25]  We pour the water generously.

 

[80:26]  Then we split the soil open.

 

[80:27]  We grow in it grains.

 

[80:28]  Grapes and pasture.

 

[80:29]  Olives and palms.

 

[80:30]  A variety of orchards.

 

[80:31]  Fruits and vegetables.

 

[80:32]  To provide life support for you and your animals.

 

[80:33]  Then, when the blow comes to pass.

 

[80:34]  That is the day when one flees from his brother.

 

[80:35]  From his mother and father.

 

[80:36]  From his spouse and children.

 

[80:37]  Each one of them, on that day, worries about his own destiny.

 

[80:38]  Some faces on that day will be happy.

 

[80:39]  Laughing and joyful.

 

[80:40]  Other faces, on that day, will be covered with misery.

 

[80:41]  Overwhelmed by remorse.

 

[80:42]  These are the wicked disbelievers.
