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 who drag forth to destruction, 1 By the meteors rushing, 2 by the swimmers (angels) swimming gently 3 And then they speed with foremost speed. 4 and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord's commands). 5 On the day when the first trumpet sound blasts 6 Followed by oft-repeated (commotions): 7 Many a heart will flutter on that day! 8 While eyes are downcast 9 They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? 10 After having turned to carious bones?" 11 They say: "Then this returning will be a dead loss." 12 However, it will only take a single blast 13 and they will be upon the surface of the earth (alive). 14 Has Moses' story reached you? 15 when his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa, 16 saying 'Go to Pharaoh, he has become exceedingly insolent, 17 And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? 18 Do you want me to guide you to your Lord, so that you should fear Him?'" 19 So he showed him the mighty sign. 20 But (the Pharaoh) disavowed and disobeyed. 21 Then he quickly turned his back. 22 And he summoned all his people, 23 Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all." 24 So Allah seized him (and made him) an example for the after (life) and for the former. 25 Surely, in this there is a lesson for he that fears! 26
