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 drag forth vehemently. (1) And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed, (2) And [by] those who glide [as if] swimming (3) by those that outstrip them suddenly, (4) Then arrange to do (the Commands of their Lord), (5) The day on which the quaking one shall quake, (6) to be followed by further [convulsions], (7) (Some) hearts that Day will shake with fear and anxiety. (8) [and] their eyes downcast... (9) They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, (10) When we have become bones decayed! (11) They say: "It would in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) But it shall be only a single scare, (13) and behold! They will all come out in the open. (14) Has Moses' story reached you? (15) How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa, (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? (18) Do you want me to guide you to your Lord, so that you should fear Him?'" (19) So he showed him the great sign, (20) But he denied and disobeyed, (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) Then he collected (his men) and made a proclamation, (23) And proclaimed: "I (Pharaoh) am your Lord the Highest." (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth. (26)
