The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
I swear by the angels who violently pull out the souls of the wicked, (1) And [by] those who remove with ease (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) And who quickly present themselves. (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) On the Day, the shiverer shivers (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) (Some) hearts that Day will shake with fear and anxiety. (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They say: "Shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state of life? (10) “When we have become decayed bones?” (11) They have said, "Such a resurrection will certainly be a great loss". (12) But verily, it will be but a single (Compelling) Cry, (13) and behold, they are awakened. (14) Has the story of Moses come to you (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) "Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds: (17) "And say to him, 'Wouldst thou that thou shouldst be purified (from sin)?- (18) And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'" (19) Then he shewed him the great sign. (20) but he denied it and refused [the faith]. (21) Then he quickly turned his back. (22) Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present. (25) Surely in that is a lesson for him who fears! (26)
