The Snatchers (Al-Naze'aat)
46 verses, revealed in Mecca after The News (Al-Naba') before Shattering (Al-Infitaar)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the angels who violently tear-out the souls of the disbelievers from their bodies, (1) and those that draw out violently, (2) by those that swim serenely (3) by those that outstrip them suddenly, (4) and thus they fulfil the [Creator's] behest! (5) The Day when the quaking will cause a violent convulsion, (6) and will be followed by another quaking. (7) Many a heart will flutter on that day! (8) Their eyes cast down. (9) The disbelievers say, “Will we really return to our former state?” (10) even after we are fragmented bones' (11) They say: "It would, in that case, be a return with loss!" (12) Indeed, it will be but one shout, (13) And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth's surface. (14) Has there reached you the story of Moses? - (15) Behold, thy Lord did call to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa:- (16) [saying], "Go to Pharaoh, he has exceeded all bounds, (17) And say to him: "Would you purify yourself (from the sin of disbelief by becoming a believer)", (18) ‘And I may guide you to your Lord, so that you may fear.’” (19) Moses showed him the great sign, (20) Yet he belied and disobeyed. (21) and hastily turned away, (22) Then he collected (his men) and made a proclamation, (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) But Allah did punish him, (and made an) example of him, - in the Hereafter, as in this life. (25) Verily in this is an instructive warning for whosoever feareth (Allah). (26)
