1 . He frowned and turned away
2 . Because the blind man came unto him.
3 . What could inform thee but that he might grow (in grace)
4 . Or take heed and so the reminder might avail him?
5 . As for him who thinketh himself independent,
6 . Unto him thou payest regard.
7 . Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace).
8 . But as for him who cometh unto thee with earnest purpose
9 . And hath fear,
10 . From him thou art distracted.
11 . Nay, but verily it is an Admonishment,
12 . So let whosoever will pay heed to it,
13 . On honoured leaves
14 . Exalted, purified,
15 . (Set down) by scribes
16 . Noble and righteous.
17 . Man is (self-)destroyed: how ungrateful!
18 . From what thing doth He create him?
19 . From a drop of seed. He createth him and proportioneth him,
20 . Then maketh the way easy for him,
21 . Then causeth him to die, and burieth him;
22 . Then, when He will, He bringeth him again to life.
23 . Nay, but (man) hath not done what He commanded him.
24 . Let man consider his food:
25 . How We pour water in showers
26 . Then split the earth in clefts
27 . And cause the grain to grow therein
28 . And grapes and green fodder
29 . And olive-trees and palm-trees
30 . And garden-closes of thick foliage
31 . And fruits and grasses:
32 . Provision for you and your cattle.
33 . But when the Shout cometh
34 . On the day when a man fleeth from his brother
35 . And his mother and his father
36 . And his wife and his children,
37 . Every man that day will have concern enough to make him heedless (of others).
38 . On that day faces will be bright as dawn,
39 . Laughing, rejoicing at good news;
40 . And other faces, on that day, with dust upon them,
41 . Veiled in darkness,
42 . Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
