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 pluckers (the angels of death), violently plucking (the souls of the unbelievers), (1) And who softly release the soul. (Of the believer) (2) And by those who glide along (on errands of mercy), (3) And who quickly present themselves. (4) And those who govern the event, (5) Upon the day when the first blast shivers (6) and the second blast follows it, (7) On that Day will [men's] hearts be throbbing, (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) They say (now): "What! shall we indeed be returned to (our) former state? (10) even after we are fragmented bones' (11) They say: “That will then be a return with a great loss!” (12) It will be only one scaring shout, (13) and they will be upon the surface of the earth (alive). (14) Has the story of Moses come to you (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) That “Go to Firaun he has rebelled.” (17) And say to him: "Would you purify yourself (from the sin of disbelief by becoming a believer)", (18) [If so,] then I shall guide thee towards [a cognition of] thy Sustainer, so that [henceforth] thou wilt stand in awe [of Him].'" (19) And he showed him the greatest sign, (20) Yet he belied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned his back, striving. (22) Then he gathered (men) and called out. (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) So God seized him for the punishment of the Hereafter and this world. (25) Surely in that is a lesson for him who fears! (26)
