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
By the angels who drag forth vehemently. (1) by the angels who gently release the souls of the believers, (2) And those who glide swimmingly, (3) And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) A Day shall come whereon the quaking will quake, (6) Followed by oft-repeated (commotions): (7) (Some) hearts that Day will shake with fear and anxiety. (8) [and] their eyes downcast... (9) They say (now): "What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state? (10) What, when we are bones old and wasted?' (11) They said, “So this return is an obvious loss!” (12) Surely they will need no more than a single stern blast, (13) When, behold, they find themselves over the earth alive after their death, (14) Has Moses' story reached you? (15) His Lord called to him in the Sacred Valley of Towa, (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) Then say: Have you (a desire) to purify yourself: (18) Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'" (19) Moses showed him the great sign, (20) but he denied it and refused [the faith]. (21) Then turned he away in haste, (22) And he gathered [his people] and called out (23) And he said: I am your Lord, most high. (24) but God seized him and meted out to him the chastisement of both the next world and the present: (25) Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth. (26)
