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 Compassionate, the Merciful
I CALL TO WITNESS those who dive and drag, (1) By the meteors rushing, (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) [HENCE, think of] the Day when a violent convulsion will convulse [the world,] (6) And the second followeth it, (7) Hearts will pound loudly on that day, (8) while eyes will be downcast. (9) They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, (10) Even if we should be decayed bones? (11) They say, "That, then, would be a losing return." (12) But it shall be only a single cry, (13) to bring them out of their graves and back to life on the earth's surface. (14) Have you received the story of Moses? (15) When his Lord called upon him in the holy valley, twice, (16) and directed him: “Go to Pharaoh, he has rebelled, (17) And say, "Hast thou the will to purify thyself; (18) I shall guide you to your Lord so that you may perhaps have fear of Him". (19) So he showed him the great sign, (20) but he cried lies, and rebelled, (21) He then turned away, striving in his effort. (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) and said, "I am your Lord All-Highest!" (24) Wherefore Allah laid hold of him with the punishment of the Hereafter and of the present. (25) Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth. (26)
