PICKTHAL: He frowned and turned away

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.002

PICKTHAL: Because the blind man came unto him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.003

PICKTHAL: What could inform thee but that he might grow (in grace)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.004

PICKTHAL: Or take heed and so the reminder might avail him?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.005

PICKTHAL: As for him who thinketh himself independent,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.006

PICKTHAL: Unto him thou payest regard.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.007

PICKTHAL: Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.008

PICKTHAL: But as for him who cometh unto thee with earnest purpose

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.009

PICKTHAL: And hath fear,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.010

PICKTHAL: From him thou art distracted.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.011

PICKTHAL: Nay, but verily it is an Admonishment,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.012

PICKTHAL: So let whosoever will pay heed to it,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.013

PICKTHAL: On honoured leaves

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.014

PICKTHAL: Exalted, purified,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.015

PICKTHAL: (Set down) by scribes

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.016

PICKTHAL: Noble and righteous.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.017

PICKTHAL: Man is (self-)destroyed: how ungrateful!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.018

PICKTHAL: From what thing doth He create him?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.019

PICKTHAL: From a drop of seed. He createth him and proportioneth him,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.020

PICKTHAL: Then maketh the way easy for him,

SHAKIR: Then (as for) the way-- He has made it easy (for him)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.021

PICKTHAL: Then causeth him to die, and burieth him;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.022

PICKTHAL: Then, when He will, He bringeth him again to life.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.023

PICKTHAL: Nay, but (man) hath not done what He commanded him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.024

PICKTHAL: Let man consider his food:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.025

PICKTHAL: How We pour water in showers

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.026

PICKTHAL: Then split the earth in clefts

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.027

PICKTHAL: And cause the grain to grow therein

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.028

PICKTHAL: And grapes and green fodder

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.029

PICKTHAL: And olive-trees and palm-trees

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.030

PICKTHAL: And garden-closes of thick foliage

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.031

PICKTHAL: And fruits and grasses:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.032

PICKTHAL: Provision for you and your cattle.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.033

PICKTHAL: But when the Shout cometh

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.034

PICKTHAL: On the day when a man fleeth from his brother

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.035

PICKTHAL: And his mother and his father

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.036

PICKTHAL: And his wife and his children,

SHAKIR: And his spouse and his son--

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.037

PICKTHAL: Every man that day will have concern enough to make him heedless
(of others).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.038

PICKTHAL: On that day faces will be bright as dawn,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.039

PICKTHAL: Laughing, rejoicing at good news;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.040

PICKTHAL: And other faces, on that day, with dust upon them,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.041

PICKTHAL: Veiled in darkness,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

080.042

PICKTHAL: Those are the disbelievers, the wicked.
