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 those [angels] who extract with violence (1) And who softly release the soul. (Of the believer) (2) and float [through space] with floating serene, (3) and yet overtake [one another] with swift overtaking: (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) On the Day, the shiverer shivers (6) What must happen afterwards shall follow it. (7) hearts upon that day shall be athrob (8) and eyes will be humbly cast down. (9) They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) They said, “So this return is an obvious loss!” (12) But it will be only a single blow, (13) And they will wake up suddenly. (14) Did the news of Moosa reach you? (15) Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:- (16) Saying: go thou unto Fir'awn; verily he hath waxen exorbitant. (17) and say to him: 'Are you willing to be purified, (18) Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'" (19) He showed him the mighty sign, (20) But he rejected (the truth) and disobeyed. (21) Further, he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, (23) saying, "I am your supreme lord". (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the Everlasting Life, and of this world. (25) Most surely there is in this a lesson to him who fears. (26)
