Number of verses in sura: 42

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.
