28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur'an). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital! (1) 'It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord. (2) our Lord is too exalted to have either a wife or son. (3) ‘And that the fool among us used to utter false exaggerations against Allah.’ (4) And lo! we had supposed that humankind and jinn would not speak a lie concerning Allah - (5) But there were certain men from mankind who would take refuge with certain males from the jinn and they increased them in tyranny. (6) Like you, they thought that Allah would never raise the dead. (7) And that we sought to reach heaven, but we found it filled with strong guards and flaming stars. (8) 'And verily, we used to sit there in stations, to (steal) a hearing, but any who listens now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush. (9) We do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them. (10) And among us there are righteous folk and among us there are far from that. We are sects having different rules. (11) And we know that we cannot frustrate Allah in the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight. (12) When we heard the guidance, we believed in it; and whosoever believes in his Lord, he shall fear neither paltriness nor vileness. (13) Some of us are Muslims and some of us have deviated from the Truth. Whoever has embraced Islam has followed the right guidance. (14) But those who are iniquitous will be fuel for Hell. (15) If they had followed the right path, We would have provided them with abundant rain -- (16) So that We might try them with respect to it; and whoever turns aside from the reminder of his Lord, He will make him enter into an afflicting chastisement: (17) ‘And that the mosques are for Allah only therefore do not worship anyone along with Allah.’ (18) ‘And that when Allah’s bondman stood up to worship Him, the jinns had almost crowded upon him.’” (19)
