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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER those [stars] that rise only to set, (1) By those (angels) who gently take out (the souls of the believers); (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). (4) And direct affairs by command, (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) Followed by the second blast, (7) Hearts on that day shall palpitate, (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They say: "Shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state of life? (10) Even after we are crumbled bones? (11) They shall say, 'That then were a losing return!' (12) Surely they will need no more than a single stern blast, (13) and behold, they are awakened. (14) Has there reached you the story of Moses? - (15) When his Lord called to him in the holy valley, Towa: (16) "Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. (17) And say (unto him): Hast thou (will) to grow (in grace)? (18) ‘And I may guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear.’” (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) But (the Pharaoh) disavowed and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned away in a hurry, (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) and proclaimed, "I am your supreme Lord," (24) but God seized him and meted out to him the chastisement of both the next world and the present: (25) Surely, in this there is a lesson for he that fears! (26)
