The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the pluckers (the angels of death), violently plucking (the souls of the unbelievers), (1) And by those who gently draw out the souls of the blessed, (2) and float [through space] with floating serene, (3) And those who race each other in a race (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) One Day everything that can be in commotion will be in violent commotion, (6) to be followed by further [convulsions]! (7) hearts will throb on that Day (8) Their looks will be downcast. (9) [And yet,] some say: "What! Are we indeed to be restored to our former state (10) even though we may have become [a heap of] crumbling bones?" (11) They shall say, 'That then were a losing return!' (12) It will only be a single blast, (13) And they will wake up suddenly. (14) Has the story of Moses come to you (15) Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:- (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)? (18) And I will guide you to your Lord so that you should fear. (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] belied and disobeyed; (21) then he turned away hastily, (22) then he mustered (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) And thereupon God took him to task, [and made him] a warning example in the life to come as well as in this world. (25) Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth (Allah). (26)
