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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths, (1) and gently take it away; (2) and by [the clouds] that swim serenely and (3) by the angels who hasten along (4) and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord's commands). (5) The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsively (6) and will be followed by another quaking. (7) Hearts, that Day, will tremble, (8) Unable to lift their gaze. (9) They say (now): "What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state? (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) and they say, "That indeed would be a losing return." (12) But it will be only a single blow, (13) When, behold, they will be in the (full) awakening (to Judgment). (14) Has not there come to you the story of Musa? (15) When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale? (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) “Tell him ‘Do you have the inclination to become pure?’ (18) And I will guide you to your Lord so that you should fear. (19) So he showed him the great sign, (20) but he cried lies, and rebelled, (21) Then he turned away in a hurry, (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) and proclaimed, and he said, 'I am your Lord, the Most High!' (24) Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present. (25) Surely, in this there is a lesson for he that fears! (26)
