;

1 . He frowned and turned away.

2 . Because there came Unto him a blind man.

3 . How canst thou know, whether haply he might be cleansed,

4 . Or be admonished, so that the admonition might have profited him?

5 . As for him who regardeth himself self-sufficient-

6 . Unto him thou attendest.

7 . Whereas it is not on thee that he is not cleansed.

8 . And as for him who cometh Unto thee running,

9 . And he feareth´-

10 . Him thou neglectest!

11 . By no means! Verily it is an admonition.

12 . So whosoever willeth-let him be admonished therewlth.

13 . Inscribed in Writs honoured,"

14 . Exalted, Purified,

15 . By the hands of scribes.

16 . Honourable and virtuous.

17 . Perish man! how ungrateful he is!

18 . Of what thing hath He created him?

19 . Of a drop of seed. He created him and formed him according to a measure.

20 . Then the way He made easy.

21 . Then He caused him to die and made him to be buried.

22 . Then when He listeth, He shall raise him to life.

23 . By no means He performed not that which He had commanded him.

24 . Let man look at his food:

25 . It is We Who pour forth water, pouring,

26 . Thereafter We cleave the earth in clefts,

27 . Then We cause therein the grain to grow,

28 . And grapes and vegetables

29 . And olives and palms

30 . And enclosed gardens luxuriant.

31 . And fruits and herbage:

32 . A provision for you and for your cattle.

33 . Then when cometh the Deafening Cry-

34 . On the Day whereon a man shall flee from his brother,

35 . And his mother and his father,

36 . And his wife and his sons;

37 . For every one of them on that Day shall be business enough to occupy

38 . Faces on that Day shall be beaming,

39 . Laughing, rejoicing.

40 . And faces on that Day! upon them shall be gloom.

41 . Dust shall cover them

42 . Those! they are the infidels, the ungodly.
