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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By [the winds] that pluck out vehemently (1) By the angels who release with gentle release. (2) by the angels who float (in the heavens by the will of God), (3) and yet overtake [one another] with swift overtaking: (4) And those who govern the event, (5) The day on which the quaking one shall quake, (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) On that Day will [men's] hearts be throbbing, (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? (10) Even if we should be decayed bones? (11) They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” (12) But it shall be only a single scare, (13) And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth's surface. (14) Has Moses' story reached you? (15) When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale? (16) [saying], "Go to Pharaoh, he has exceeded all bounds, (17) Then say thou: wouldst thou to be purified? (18) And that I guide you to your Lord, so you should fear Him? (19) Then he shewed him the great sign. (20) but he belied and disobeyed, (21) Then he quickly turned his back. (22) And he summoned all his people, (23) And he said: I am your Lord, most high. (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears. (26)
