80 HE FROWNED (1 – 23)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

He frowned and turned away that the blind man came to him. And what should teach thee? Perchance he would cleanse him, or yet remember, and the Reminder profit him. 5But the self-sufficient, to him thou attendest though it is not thy concern, if he does not cleanse himself. And he who comes to thee eagerly and fearfully, 10to him thou payest no heed.

No indeed; it is a Reminder (and whoso wills, shall remember it) upon pages high-honoured, uplifted, purified, 15by the hands of scribes noble, pious.

Perish Man! How unthankful he is! Of what did He create him? Of a sperm-drop He created him, and determined him, 20then the way eased for him, then makes him to die, and buries him, then, when He wills, He raises him. No indeed! Man has not accomplished His bidding.
