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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the angels who violently tear-out the souls of the disbelievers from their bodies, (1) by the drawers (the angels of death), gently drawing (the souls of the believers), (2) and float [through space] with floating serene, (3) and those that outstrip suddenly (4) And those who arrange [each] matter, (5) On the day when the trembling one will tremble. (The disbelievers will certainly taste the punishment.) (6) And the second followeth it, (7) Hearts will pound loudly on that day, (8) Cast down will be (their owners') eyes. (9) The disbelievers say, “Will we really return to our former state?” (10) “When we have become decayed bones?” (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) It will only be a single blast, (13) and behold, they are awakened. (14) Has there come to you the story of Musa (Moses)? (15) His Lord called out to him by the sacred valley of Tuwa: (16) Go to Firon, surely he has become inordinate. (17) “Tell him ‘Do you have the inclination to become pure?’ (18) Then I will guide thee to thy Lord and thou shalt fear (Him). (19) And thereupon he [went to Pharaoh and] made him aware of the great wonder [of God's grace]. (20) But he denied and disobeyed, (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all." (24) So Allah seized him in exemplary punishment for the last and the first [transgression]. (25) Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [Allah]. (26)
