The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those who drag forth to destruction, (1) By the angels who release with gentle release. (2) and by [the clouds] that swim serenely and (3) Then those who are foremost going ahead, (4) And then they manage the affair, (5) The day on which the quaking one shall quake, (6) Followed by oft-repeated (commotions): (7) Many a heart will flutter on that day! (8) while eyes will be downcast. (9) They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, (10) even after we are fragmented bones' (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) But all it will take is a single blast, (13) And lo! they all shall appear on the surface. (14) Hast thou received the story of Moses? (15) Lo! His Sustainer called out to him in the twice-hallowed valley: (16) That “Go to Firaun he has rebelled.” (17) And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? (18) that I may direct you to your Lord and then you hold Him in awe?'” (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) Yet he belied and disobeyed. (21) and hastily turned away, (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) and said, "I am your Lord All-Highest!" (24) So God seized him with the chastisement of the Last World and the First. (25) Indeed in this is a lesson for one who fears. (26)
