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 Merciful, the Compassionate
By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence; 1 and gently take it away; 2 by the swimmers (angels) swimming gently 3 Then press forward as in a race, 4 and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! 5 A Day shall come whereon the quaking will quake, 6 and the second blast follows it, 7 On that Day some hearts shall tremble (with fright), 8 Their eyes humbled. 9 They say: “Shall we indeed be restored to life, 10 after we have become bones and dust?" 11 They say: Then that would be a vain proceeding. 12 So that is not but a single shout. 13 When, behold, they will be in the (full) awakening (to Judgment). 14 Has there reached you the story of Moses? - 15 When his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa. 16 Go to Firon, surely he has become inordinate. 17 And say to him, 'Would you [be willing to] purify yourself 18 And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'" 19 Then [Musa (Moses)] showed him the great sign (miracles). 20 But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] belied and disobeyed; 21 Then he went back hastily. 22 And he summoned all his people, 23 “I am the supreme lord of you all.” 24 So God struck him with the torment of this life and the life hereafter. 25 Surely in that is a lesson for him who fears! 26
