The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the angels who violently tear-out the souls of the disbelievers from their bodies, (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 vie with the others (in carrying out their Lord's behests); (4) And direct affairs by command, (5) On the Day (when the first blowing of the Trumpet is blown), the earth and the mountains will shake violently (and everybody will die), (6) And there will follow it the next blast. (7) Many a heart will flutter on that day! (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They shall say, 'What, are we being restored as we were before? (10) When we have become bones decayed! (11) They have said, "Such a resurrection will certainly be a great loss". (12) So that is not but a single shout. (13) and behold! They will all come out in the open. (14) HAS THE STORY of Moses ever come within thy ken. (15) Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:- (16) "Go thou to Pharaoh for he has indeed transgressed all bounds: (17) and say: "Will you purify yourself, (18) "'And that I guide thee to thy Lord, so thou shouldst fear Him?'" (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) But [Pharaoh] gave him the lie and rebelliously rejected [all guidance,] (21) He then turned away, striving in his effort. (22) then he mustered (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) And thereupon God took him to task, [and made him] a warning example in the life to come as well as in this world. (25) Indeed in this is a lesson for one who fears. (26)
