In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
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 honored 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 .
