The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
I CALL TO WITNESS those who dive and drag, (1) by the drawers (the angels of death), gently drawing (the souls of the believers), (2) by those that swim serenely (3) And who quickly present themselves. (4) by those that direct an affair! (5) The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsively (6) Followed by the second blast, (7) hearts will undergo terrible trembling, (8) Their looks will be downcast. (9) They say: "Shall we go back to our original state (10) even after we have been reduced to bones, hollow and rotten?” (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) But verily, it will be but a single (Compelling) Cry, (13) and behold, they are awakened. (14) HAS THE STORY of Moses ever come within thy ken. (15) His Lord called out to him by the sacred valley of Tuwa: (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) and say, 'Will you reform yourself? (18) Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'" (19) So Moosa showed him a magnificent sign. (20) but he denied it and refused [the faith]. (21) Then turned he away in haste, (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) and proclaimed, and he said, 'I am your Lord, the Most High!' (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Indeed in this is a lesson for one who fears. (26)
