He frowned and turned ˹his attention˺ away,

80:2

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹simply˺ because the blind man came to him ˹interrupting˺.1

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

You never know ˹O Prophet˺, perhaps he may be purified,

80:4

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

or he may be mindful, benefitting from the reminder.

80:5

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

As for the one who was indifferent,

80:6

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

you gave him your ˹undivided˺ attention,

80:7

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

even though you are not to blame if he would not be purified.

80:8

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

80:9

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

80:10

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

you were inattentive to him.
