The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By those who drag forth to destruction, (1) and those that blow gently, (2) And those who glide swimmingly, (3) and the outstrippers (angels), outstripping, (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) And the following event will come after it. (7) Hearts on that day shall palpitate, (8) Unable to lift their gaze. (9) They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? (10) Even after we are crumbled bones? (11) They say, "That, then, would be a losing return." (12) [But,] then, that [Last Hour] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry (13) And lo! they all shall appear on the surface. (14) Has Moses' story reached you? (15) How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa, (16) "Go to the Pharaoh who has become refractory, (17) And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? (18) Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'" (19) So he showed him the great sign, (20) but he belied and disobeyed, (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) and gathered his people together (23) And then said, “I am your most supreme lord.” (24) Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present. (25) Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth (Allah). (26)
