The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those who drag forth to destruction, (1) By those (angels) who gently take out (the souls of the believers); (2) by the angels who float (in the heavens by the will of God), (3) And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). (4) and by the angels who regulate the affairs, (you will certainly be resurrected). (5) On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation], (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) On that Day will [men's] hearts be throbbing, (8) and their eyes will be humbled. (9) (The disbelievers) say, "Shall we be brought back to life again (10) even after we have been reduced to bones, hollow and rotten?” (11) They say, "That, then, would be a losing return." (12) But all it will take is a single blast, (13) And lo! they all shall appear on the surface. (14) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (15) When his Lord called to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) saying, "Go to the Pharaoh. He has transgressed beyond all bounds. (17) "And say to him, 'Wouldst thou that thou shouldst be purified (from sin)?- (18) that I might guide you to your Lord, so that you fear (Him)." (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] belied and disobeyed; (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) and gathered his people and declared: (23) Then he said: I am your lord, the most high. (24) Wherefore Allah laid hold of him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of the present. (25) Indeed in this is a lesson for one who fears. (26)
