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 Beneficent, the 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 who glide along (on errands of mercy), (3) by those that outstrip them suddenly, (4) by those that direct an affair! (5) Upon the day when the first blast shivers (6) and the second blast follows it, (7) Hearts on that Day will be throbbing; (8) While eyes are downcast (9) They say: shall we indeed be restored to the first state, (10) Even after we are crumbled bones? (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) But all it will take is a single blast, (13) And they will wake up suddenly. (14) Hath there come unto thee the history of Moses? (15) When his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa. (16) "Go unto Pharaoh - for, verily, he has transgressed all bounds of what is right (17) And say, "Hast thou the will to purify thyself; (18) ‘And I may guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear.’” (19) And he showed him the tremendous token. (20) but he denied it as false and disobeyed, (21) Then he quickly turned his back. (22) Then gathered he and summoned (23) Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all." (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) In this there is a lesson for those who have fear of God. (26)
