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 benevolent, ever-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 those who glide swimmingly, (3) Then press forward as in a race, (4) by the managers (angels) affair. (5) On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation], (6) And the following event will come after it. (7) On that day hearts beat painfully (8) and their eyes shall be humbled. (9) They say: Shall we indeed be restored to (our) first state? (10) When we have become bones decayed! (11) They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” (12) It will be only one scaring shout, (13) and then, lo, they will be fully awakened [to the truth]! (14) Has there come to you the story of Musa (Moses)? (15) When his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa. (16) "Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds: (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 he denied it and refused [the faith]. (21) Then he turned back striving. (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) and said, "I am your Lord All-Highest!" (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Truly there is a lesson in this for those who fear (the consequences). (26)
