Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Say, (O Prophet), it was revealed to me that a band of jinn attentively listened to (the recitation of the Qur'an) and then (went back to their people) and said: (1) which guides people to the right path and we believe in it. We shall never consider anyone equal to our Lord; (2) And that He-- exalted be the majesty of our Lord-- has not taken a consort, nor a son: (3) And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah: (4) 'But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah. (5) But there were certain men of mankind who would take refuge with certain men of the jinn, and they increased them in vileness, (6) Those people thought, like you, that God would never send down a Messenger. (7) "'And [so it happened] that we reached out towards heaven: but we found it filled with mighty guards and flames, (8) And we were wont to sit on seats therein to listen; but whosoever listeneth now findeth for him a dartin meteor in wait. (9) ‘And we do not know whether harm is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends goodness for them.’ (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups each having a different way (religious sect, etc.). (11) We knew that we could never challenge God whether we stayed on earth or fled elsewhere. (12) When we heard the call to guidance, we believed in it. He who believes in his Lord has no fear of loss or of injustice. (13) ‘And that some among us are Muslims and some are the unjust; and whoever has accepted Islam it is they who have thought rightly.’ (14) ‘And as for the unjust they are the fuel of hell.’” (15) And [Allah revealed] that if they had remained straight on the way, We would have given them abundant provision (16) ‘In order to test them with it; and whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord He will put him in a punishment that keeps on increasing.’ (17) And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. (18) When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen). (19)
