The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence; (1) by the drawers (the angels of death), gently drawing (the souls of the believers), (2) And by those that swim along (i.e. angels or planets in their orbits, etc.). (3) and those that outstrip suddenly (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) to be followed by further [convulsions], (7) hearts upon that day shall be athrob (8) Eyes be lowered in submission. (9) They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, (10) Even after we are crumbled bones? (11) They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding. (12) So that is not but a single shout. (13) And lo! they will be awakened. (14) Did the news of Moosa reach you? (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) "Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed. (17) “Tell him ‘Do you have the inclination to become pure?’ (18) Do you want me to guide you to your Lord, so that you should fear Him?'" (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) but he cried lies, and rebelled, (21) Then he quickly turned his back. (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) and proclaimed, and he said, 'I am your Lord, the Most High!' (24) So Allah seized him (and made him) an example for the after (life) and for the former. (25) In this, behold, there is a lesson indeed for all who stand in awe [of God]. (26)
