Free Quran Chapter 79: The Snatchers (Al-Naaze’aat)

Learn from GOD that angels are constantly active around us, and they are only gentle towards believers. Only the disbelievers will be snatched away from their body when they die. Believers are instead gently invited to the afterlife. It is not wrong to appreciate the hard work the angels are doing, as long as you understand that it is all thanks to GOD. In this chapter you also learn that our planet Earth is egg shaped, it is not a perfect sphere and it is definitely not flat. There is actually still people out there who believe that our planet is flat. And they don’t live in caves. They live TODAY, in the developed first world, and they went to school and they have had access to education. Yet they still believe our planet is flat. This is interesting because it shows exactly how people behave when presented with a miracle. For example in this chapter you will read about Moses and how he revealed a miracle to convince Pharaoh, but Pharaoh didn’t believe, even though the evidence was looking straight into his face. Then another example is when Moses split the sea with his staff, the Hebrews were amazed, however, it didn’t stop them from disbelieving. They created a golden statue of an animal, the golden calf. And began to worship it. Even though Moses showed them proof that GOD is powerful enough to split an entire ocean. But the israelites still preferred to worship a statute whose only power was to make animal sounds? This behavior is beyond brain dead. But those were different times right? RIGHT? Oh, never mind, people still believe our planet is flat. And likewise there will be people who will disbelieve in the Quran and its miracle. But does it really matter if those people don’t believe? Think about that for a moment. If someone is that stupid and arrogant, does it then not make sense that they end up in hell? So yes, people will disblieve in the mathematical miracle of the Quran, and that’s perfectly alright, everything is as it should be, like clockwork.

Quran Chapter 79: The Snatchers (Al-Naaze’aat)

[79:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[79:1] The (angels who) snatch (the souls of the disbelievers) forcibly.

[79:2] And those who gently take (the souls of the believers) joyfully.

[79:3] And those floating everywhere.

[79:4] Eagerly racing with one another –

[79:5] to carry out various commands.

[79:6] The day the quake quakes.

[79:7] Followed by the second blow.

[79:8] Certain minds will be terrified.

[79:9] Their eyes will be subdued.

[79:10] They will say, “We have been recreated from the grave!

[79:11] “How did this happen after we had turned into rotten bones?”

[79:12] They had said, “This is an impossible recurrence.”

[79:13] All it takes is one nudge.

[79:14] Whereupon they get up.

[79:15] Have you known about the history of Moses?

[79:16] His Lord called him at the holy valley of Tuwaa.

[79:17] “Go to Pharaoh; he has transgressed.”

[79:18] Tell him, “Would you not reform?

[79:19] “Let me guide you to your Lord, that you may turn reverent.”

[79:20] He then showed him the great miracle.

[79:21] But he disbelieved and rebelled.

[79:22] Then he turned away in a hurry.

[79:23] He summoned and proclaimed.

[79:24] He said, “I am your Lord; most high.”

[79:25] Consequently, God committed him to the retribution in the Hereafter, as well as in the first life.

[79:26] This is a lesson for the reverent.

[79:27] Are you more difficult to create than the heaven? He constructed it.

[79:28] He raised its masses, and perfected it.

[79:29] He made its night dark, and brightened its morn.

[79:30] He made the earth egg-shaped.*

*79:30 The Arabic word “dahhaahaa” is derived from “Dahhyah” which means “egg.”

[79:31] From it, He produced its own water and pasture.

[79:32] He established the mountains.

[79:33] All this to provide life support for you and your animals.

[79:34] Then, when the great blow comes.

[79:35] That is the day when the human will remember everything he did.

[79:36] Hell will be brought into existence.

[79:37] As for the one who transgressed.

[79:38] Who was preoccupied with this life.

[79:39] Hell will be the abode.

[79:40] As for the one who reverenced the majesty of his Lord, and enjoined the self from sinful lusts.

[79:41] Paradise will be the abode.

[79:42] They ask you about the Hour, and when it will take place!

[79:43] It is not you (Muhammad) who is destined to announce its time.

[79:44] Your Lord decides its fate.

[79:45] Your mission is to warn those who expect it.

[79:46] The day they see it, they will feel as if they lasted one evening or half a day.
