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 Compassionate
CONSIDER those [stars] that rise only to set, (1) And [by] those who remove with ease (2) by the swimmers (angels) swimming gently (3) By the angels hastening, (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) One Day everything that can be in commotion will be in violent commotion, (6) to be followed by further [convulsions]! (7) On that day hearts beat painfully (8) and eyes will be humbly cast down. (9) They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, (10) Even after we are crumbled bones? (11) They said: That then would be a return occasioning loss. (12) So that is not but a single shout. (13) and behold! They will all come out in the open. (14) (Muhammad), have you heard the story of Moses (15) When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale? (16) (Saying:) Go thou unto Pharaoh - Lo! he hath rebelled - (17) And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? (18) that I might guide you to your Lord, so that you fear (Him)." (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed. (21) Then he went back hastily. (22) And he summoned all his people, (23) Saying, "I am your Lord, Most High". (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Surely there is a great lesson in it for whoever would fear (Allah). (26)
