The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths, (1) and move [in their orbits] with steady motion, (2) and by those that speedily glide along (the cosmos), (3) Then press forward as in a race, (4) And then they manage the affair, (5) On the Day (when the first blowing of the Trumpet is blown), the earth and the mountains will shake violently (and everybody will die), (6) Followed by the second blast, (7) hearts will be throbbing, (8) and their eyes will be humbled. (9) They say: 'What, are we being restored as we were before, (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) They will say: 'Then we are returned lost' (12) It will only be a single blast, (13) And lo! they will be awakened. (14) Has there reached you the story of Moses? - (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) "Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. (17) and say to him: 'Are you willing to be purified, (18) that I may direct you to your Lord and then you hold Him in awe?'” (19) Moses showed him the great miracle (20) Yet he belied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned his back, striving. (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all." (24) And thereupon God took him to task, [and made him] a warning example in the life to come as well as in this world. (25) Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [Allah]. (26)
