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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By oath of those who harshly pull out the soul. (Of the disbeliever) (1) by the drawers (the angels of death), gently drawing (the souls of the believers), (2) By the lone stars floating, (3) And those who race each other in a race (4) And who plan the implementation. (5) On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation], (6) followed by the succeeding, (7) hearts upon that day shall be athrob (8) and eyes will be humbly cast down. (9) They say (now): "What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state? (10) What! when we are rotten bones? (11) They said, “So this return is an obvious loss!” (12) Surely it will need but one shout, (13) And lo! they will be awakened. (14) Has there reached you the story of Moses? - (15) when his Lord called him in the holy valley of Tuwa, (16) That “Go to Firaun he has rebelled.” (17) Then say: Have you (a desire) to purify yourself: (18) Then I shall guide thee unto thy Lord so that thou shalt fear. (19) Moses showed him the great miracle (20) Yet he belied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned his back, striving hard (against Allah). (22) So he gathered the people, and proclaimed. (23) Then he said: I am your lord, the most high. (24) So Allah seized him with the punishment of the hereafter and the former life. (25) Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [Allah].
