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 Merciful, the Compassionate
By [the winds] that pluck out vehemently 1 and move [in their orbits] with steady motion, 2 and float [through space] with floating serene, 3 by those that outstrip them suddenly, 4 And those who arrange [each] matter, 5 The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsively 6 What must happen afterwards shall follow it. 7 Hearts will pound loudly on that day, 8 Their eyes cast down. 9 They say: shall we indeed be restored to the first state, 10 Even if we should be decayed bones? 11 They said: That then would be a return occasioning loss. 12 It will be only one scaring shout, 13 and lo, they will all be in the open plain. 14 Hath there come unto thee the history of Moses? 15 How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa, 16 Saying: go thou unto Fir'awn; verily he hath waxen exorbitant. 17 And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? 18 And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'" 19 Then he shewed him the great sign. 20 In response, he denied and disobeyed. 21 Then he turned his back, striving. 22 Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, 23 Saying: "I am your lord, most high", 24 Wherefore Allah laid hold of him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of the present. 25 Surely there is a great lesson in it for whoever would fear (Allah). 26
