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 pluckers (the angels of death), violently plucking (the souls of the unbelievers), (1) and those that draw out violently, (2) And by those who float in space, (3) and yet overtake [one another] with swift overtaking: (4) And those who arrange [each] matter, (5) On the day when the first trumpet sound blasts (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) On that Day will [men's] hearts be throbbing, (8) and their eyes shall be downcast with dread. (9) They are [presently] saying, "Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]? (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) But all it will take is a single blast, (13) And lo! they will be awakened. (14) Have you received the story of Moses? (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) (Saying:) Go thou unto Pharaoh - Lo! he hath rebelled - (17) And say (unto him): Hast thou (will) to grow (in grace)? (18) Then I shall guide thee unto thy Lord so that thou shalt fear. (19) So he showed him the greater sign; (20) But (the Pharaoh) disavowed and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) then, he gathered, proclaimed, (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) Allah therefore seized him, in the punishment of this world and the Hereafter. (25) In this, behold, there is a lesson indeed for all who stand in awe [of God]. (26)
