The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By those who drag forth to destruction, (1) And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed, (2) and by those that speedily glide along (the cosmos), (3) And then they speed with foremost speed. (4) And by those angels who arrange to do the Commands of their Lord, (so verily, you disbelievers will be called to account). (5) On the Day when a violent convulsion will convulse [the world], (6) and will be followed by the second one, (7) hearts upon that day shall be athrob (8) while eyes will be downcast. (9) (Now) they are saying: Shall we really be restored to our first state (10) after we have become bones and dust?" (11) They said, “So this return is an obvious loss!” (12) Surely it will need but one shout, (13) When lo! they shall be wakeful. (14) Have you heard the story of Moses? (15) His Lord called out to him by the sacred valley of Tuwa: (16) saying 'Go to Pharaoh, he has become exceedingly insolent, (17) and say: "Will you purify yourself, (18) that I might guide you to your Lord, so that you fear (Him)." (19) Then Moses (went to Pharaoh and) showed him the Great Sign; (20) but he denied it as false and disobeyed, (21) Then he turned his back, striving. (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) And then said, “I am your most supreme lord.” (24) And thereupon God took him to task, [and made him] a warning example in the life to come as well as in this world. (25) Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth (Allah). (26)
