Surah An-Naazi'aat is the seventy-ninth chapter of the Quran, consisting of 46 verses. The title of the surah, An-Naazi'aat, translates to "Those who drag forth" or "Those who pull out" and is derived from the first verse of the surah.

It serves as a powerful admonition to reflect on one's choices and to prepare for the inevitable Day of Judgment.

Overall, Surah An-Naazi'aat serves as a profound reminder of the transient nature of life, the certainty of the Hereafter, and the ultimate justice of Allah. It calls upon believers to remain steadfast in their faith, to reflect on the signs of Allah, and to prepare for the Day of Reckoning.
