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 Compassionate, the Merciful
By the angels who violently tear-out the souls of the disbelievers from their bodies, (1) by the angels who gently release the souls of the believers, (2) By the angels who glide swimmingly, (3) and the outstrippers (angels), outstripping, (4) and then manage the affairs of the Universe (according to their Lord's commands). (5) On the Day, the shiverer shivers (6) followed by the succeeding, (7) Hearts will pound loudly on that day, (8) While eyes are downcast (9) They say: 'What, are we being restored as we were before, (10) Even if we should be decayed bones? (11) They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding. (12) It will be only one scaring shout, (13) And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth's surface. (14) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (15) When his Lord called to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) And say (unto him): Hast thou (will) to grow (in grace)? (18) And I will guide you to your Lord so that you should fear. (19) Then did (Moses) show him the Great Sign. (20) But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned back striving. (22) And assembled (his council) and proclaimed, (23) then said: 'I am your lord, the most high' (24) Thereupon Allah seized him for the chastisement of the World to Come as well as of the present. (25) Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth. (26)
