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 Compassionate, the Merciful
By the pluckers (the angels of death), violently plucking (the souls of the unbelievers), (1) by the angels who gently release the souls of the believers, (2) And by those who float in space, (3) And by those that press forward as in a race (i.e. the angels or stars or the horses, etc.). (4) And by those angels who arrange to do the Commands of their Lord, (so verily, you disbelievers will be called to account). (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) What must happen afterwards shall follow it. (7) Hearts on that day shall palpitate, (8) and their eyes shall be humbled. (9) They say, "What? shall we be brought back to life, (10) even after we are fragmented bones' (11) They say, "That, then, would be a losing return." (12) So that is not but a single shout. (13) to bring them out of their graves and back to life on the earth's surface. (14) Has the story of Moses reached thee? (15) When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tuwa, (16) [saying], "Go to Pharaoh, he has exceeded all bounds, (17) Then say: Have you (a desire) to purify yourself: (18) Do you want me to guide you to your Lord, so that you should fear Him?'" (19) So he showed him the great sign, (20) but he belied and disobeyed, (21) Then he went back hastily. (22) Then he gathered and cried aloud, (23) then said: 'I am your lord, the most high' (24) So God struck him with the torment of this life and the life hereafter. (25) Verily herein is lesson for him who feareth. (26)
