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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence; (1) by the drawers (the angels of death), gently drawing (the souls of the believers), (2) by the angels who float (in the heavens by the will of God), (3) by those that outstrip them suddenly, (4) And direct affairs by command, (5) On the day when the trembling one will tremble. (The disbelievers will certainly taste the punishment.) (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) On that day hearts beat painfully (8) While eyes are downcast (9) (Now) they are saying: Shall we really be restored to our first state (10) after we have become bones and dust?" (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) [But,] then, that [Last Hour] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry (13) And lo! they all shall appear on the surface. (14) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (15) His Lord called to him in the Sacred Valley of Towa, (16) "Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds: (17) and say, 'Will you reform yourself? (18) [If so,] then I shall guide thee towards [a cognition of] thy Sustainer, so that [henceforth] thou wilt stand in awe [of Him].'" (19) So Moosa showed him a magnificent sign. (20) but he cried lies, and rebelled, (21) and then he turned back to have recourse to his craftiness, (22) then he mustered (23) “I am the supreme lord of you all.” (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the hereafter and the former life. (25) In this there is a lesson for those who have fear of God. (26)
