The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By [the winds] that pluck out vehemently (1) By those who gently draw out (the souls of the blessed); (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) and vie with the others (in carrying out their Lord's behests); (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) Followed by oft-repeated (commotions): (7) On that Day will [men's] hearts be throbbing, (8) While eyes are downcast (9) [And yet,] some say: "What! Are we indeed to be restored to our former state (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” (12) [But,] then, that [Last Hour] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry (13) And they will wake up suddenly. (14) Did the news of Moosa reach you? (15) Recall what time his Lord called unto him in the holy vale of Tuwa. (16) "Go to the Pharaoh who has become refractory, (17) and say to him: 'Are you willing to be purified, (18) I shall guide you to your Lord so that you may perhaps have fear of Him". (19) So Moosa showed him a magnificent sign. (20) but he cried lies, and rebelled, (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) and then he gathered [his great ones,] and called [unto his people,] (23) “I am the supreme lord of you all.” (24) But Allah did punish him, (and made an) example of him, - in the Hereafter, as in this life. (25) Surely in that is a lesson for him who fears! (26)
