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 benevolent, ever-merciful
By the angels who drag forth vehemently. 1 By the meteors rushing, 2 And those who glide swimmingly, 3 Then those who are foremost going ahead, 4 Then arrange to do (the Commands of their Lord), 5 Upon the day when the first blast shivers 6 and will be followed by another quaking. 7 hearts will undergo terrible trembling, 8 Unable to lift their gaze. 9 They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, 10 even after we are fragmented bones' 11 They will say: 'Then we are returned lost' 12 It will be only one scaring shout, 13 to bring them out of their graves and back to life on the earth's surface. 14 Hast thou received the story of Moses? 15 When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, 16 "Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. 17 and say [unto him,] 'Art thou desirous of attaining to purity? 18 I shall guide you to your Lord so that you may perhaps have fear of Him". 19 Moses showed him the great sign, 20 but the Pharaoh rejected it and disobeyed (Moses). 21 Then turned he away in haste, 22 Then gathered he and summoned 23 and proclaimed, and he said, 'I am your Lord, the Most High!' 24 So God struck him with the torment of this life and the life hereafter. 25 Truly there is a lesson in this for those who fear (the consequences). 26
