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 Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By [the winds] that pluck out vehemently (1) By the meteors rushing, (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) and those that outstrip suddenly (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) On the day when the first trump resoundeth. (6) and will be followed by another quaking. (7) Hearts on that day shall palpitate, (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They say: "Shall we go back to our original state (10) When we have become bones decayed! (11) They shall say, 'That then were a losing return!' (12) [But,] then, that [Last Hour] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry (13) And lo! they all shall appear on the surface. (14) Have you received the story of Moses? (15) when his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa, (16) saying 'Go to Pharaoh, he has become exceedingly insolent, (17) “Tell him ‘Do you have the inclination to become pure?’ (18) ‘And I may guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear.’” (19) Moses showed him the great sign, (20) But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed. (21) then he turned away hastily, (22) and gathered his people together (23) saying, "I am your supreme lord". (24) but God seized him and meted out to him the chastisement of both the next world and the present: (25) surely there is in this a lesson for the God-fearing. (26)
