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 those that pluck out vehemently (1) And those who undo the bonds gently, (2) By the angels who glide swimmingly, (3) Then those who are foremost going ahead, (4) Then arrange to do (the Commands of their Lord), (5) On the Day when a violent convulsion will convulse [the world], (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) hearts will undergo terrible trembling, (8) and their eyes shall be downcast with dread. (9) They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? (10) What, when we are bones old and wasted?' (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) It will be only one scaring shout, (13) and then, lo, they will be fully awakened [to the truth]! (14) Hath there come unto thee the story of Musa! (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) (Saying:) Go thou unto Pharaoh - Lo! he hath rebelled - (17) And say to him, 'Would you [be willing to] purify yourself (18) Do you want me to guide you to your Lord, so that you should fear Him?'" (19) Moses showed him the great miracle (20) In response, he denied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned away, deliberating, (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) Then he said: I am your lord, the most high. (24) Wherefore Allah laid hold of him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of the present. (25) In this there is a lesson for those who have fear of God. (26)
