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 Muhammad SAW): "It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns listened (to this Quran). They said: 'Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Quran)! (1) “We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur'an which guides to the Right Way; so we have come to believe in it, and we will not associate aught with Our Lord in His Divinity”; (2) ‘And that our Lord’s Majesty is Supreme He has neither chosen a wife nor a child.’ (3) ‘And that the fool among us used to utter false exaggerations against Allah.’ (4) and we had thought that men and jinn would never speak against God a lie. (5) and that “some from among the humans used to seek protection of some among the jinn, and thus they increased the arrogance of the jinn”; (6) And they had thought, as you thought, that Allah would never send anyone [as a messenger]. (7) And we stretched towards heaven, but we found it filled with terrible guards and meteors. (8) and that “we would take up stations in the heaven to try to hear but anyone who now attempts to listen finds a shooting meteor in wait for him”; (9) "'And [now we have become aware] that we [created beings] may not know whether evil fortune is intended for [any of] those who live on earth, or whether it is their Sustainer's will to endow them with consciousness of what is right: (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths. (11) We realised that we could not weaken the power of God on earth, nor outpace Him by running away. (12) 'And indeed when we heard the Guidance (this Quran), we believed therein (Islamic Monotheism), and whosoever believes in his Lord shall have no fear, either of a decrease in the reward of his good deeds or an increase in punishment for his sins. (13) And there are among us some who have surrendered (to Allah) and there are among us some who are unjust. And whoso hath surrendered to Allah, such have taken the right path purposefully. (14) but those who deviated from the Truth, will be the fuel for Hell.” (15) Had they (jinn and mankind) remained steadfast in their religion (Islam), We would certainly have given them abundant water to drink (16) That We might try them there by. And whosoever turneth aside from the remembrance of his Lord, him He shall thrust into a torment vehement. (17) And the prostrations are for Allah; wherefore call not along with Allah anyone. (18) When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen). (19)
