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
By those (angels) that pluck out the soul from depths, 1 And those who undo the bonds gently, 2 and float [through space] with floating serene, 3 By the angels hastening, 4 and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord's commands). 5 The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, 6 And the second followeth it, 7 Hearts on that Day will be throbbing; 8 and their eyes shall be humbled. 9 They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, 10 What! when we are rotten bones? 11 They shall say, 'That then were a losing return!' 12 But all it will take is a single blast, 13 When lo! they shall be wakeful. 14 Hath there come unto thee the history of Moses? 15 When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, 16 saying 'Go to Pharaoh, he has become exceedingly insolent, 17 And say to him, 'Would you [be willing to] purify yourself 18 that I may direct you to your Lord and then you hold Him in awe?'” 19 He showed him the mighty sign, 20 but he belied and disobeyed, 21 and brusquely turned his back [on Moses]; 22 and gathered his people and declared: 23 And he said: I am your Lord, most high. 24 Allah therefore seized him, in the punishment of this world and the Hereafter. 25 Surely there is a great lesson in it for whoever would fear (Allah). 26
