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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By the (angels) who tear out (the souls of the wicked) with violence; (1) by the angels who gently release the souls of the believers, (2) And those who glide swimmingly, (3) Then outpace the others swiftly (4) Then those who regulate the affair. (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) and will be followed by another quaking. (7) Hearts will pound loudly on that day, (8) Cast down will be (their owners') eyes. (9) They say: shall we indeed be restored to the first state, (10) “When we have become decayed bones?” (11) They say: "Then this returning will be a dead loss." (12) But all it will take is a single blast, (13) and behold, they are awakened. (14) (Muhammad), have you heard the story of Moses (15) How his Lord called him in the holy vale of Tuwa, (16) 'Go to Pharaoh; he has waxed insolent. (17) And say to him: "Would you purify yourself (from the sin of disbelief by becoming a believer)", (18) Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'" (19) And thereupon he [went to Pharaoh and] made him aware of the great wonder [of God's grace]. (20) But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed. (21) Then he turned back striving. (22) Then gathered he and summoned (23) then said: 'I am your lord, the most high' (24) So God seized him for the punishment of the Hereafter and this world. (25) In this there is a lesson for those who have fear of God. (26)
