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 Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those [angels] who extract with violence (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) by the angels who hasten along (4) And those who govern the event, (5) On the Day, the shiverer shivers (6) Followed by oft-repeated (commotions): (7) hearts will be throbbing, (8) Eyes be lowered in submission. (9) They say: 'What, are we being restored as we were before, (10) after we have become bones and dust?" (11) They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” (12) It will be only one scaring shout, (13) And lo! they will be awakened. (14) Have you received the story of Moses? (15) Lo! His Sustainer called out to him in the twice-hallowed valley: (16) saying, "Go to the Pharaoh. He has transgressed beyond all bounds. (17) And say to him, "Would you like to reform yourself? (18) and that I should guide thee to thy Lord, then thou shalt fear?"' (19) And he showed him the tremendous token. (20) But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed. (21) then he turned away hastily, (22) Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, (23) Then he said: I am your lord, the most high. (24) So God seized him with the chastisement of the Last World and the First. (25) surely there is in this a lesson for the God-fearing. (26)
