The surah that opens with the oath of the Divine One swearing by The Wresters, the angelic pullers, who shall harshly wrest out the souls of the unbelievers at their appointed time of death. It takes its name from "the wresters" (al-nāziʿāt) mentioned in verse 1. The main theme of the surah is the possibility and inevitability of the Resurrection, its results, and its timing. The story of Moses and Pharaoh acts as encouragement to the Prophet and a warning to the disbelievers.
The surah is also known as: (Soul-)Snatchers, Extractors, The Angelic Pullers, The Forceful Chargers, The Pluckers, The Soul-Snatchers, Those That Rise, Those Who Pull and Withdraw, Those Who Tear Out.
