The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
CONSIDER those [stars] that rise only to set, (1) And [by] those who remove with ease (2) and float [through space] with floating serene, (3) and those that outstrip suddenly (4) and by those who regulate events. (5) The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsively (6) And the second followeth it, (7) Hearts on that day shall palpitate, (8) Their looks will be downcast. (9) They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? (10) "What! - when we shall have become rotten bones?" (11) They said: That then would be a return occasioning loss. (12) Surely it will need but one shout, (13) When, behold, they find themselves over the earth alive after their death, (14) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (15) When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale? (16) "Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. (17) and say: "Will you purify yourself, (18) I shall guide you to your Lord so that you may perhaps have fear of Him". (19) Moses showed him the great miracle (20) But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed. (21) Then he went back hastily. (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (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) In this, behold, there is a lesson indeed for all who stand in awe [of God]. (26)
