Jinns (Al-Jinn)
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
۞ (Muhammad), say, "It has been revealed to me that a party of jinn has listened (to the recitation) of the Quran and has told (their people), "We heard an amazing reading (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 He - exalted be the majesty of our Lord! hath taken neither a spouse nor a son. (3) And the foolish among us were wont to forge lies against Allah exceedingly. (4) And we had thought that mankind and the jinn would never speak about Allah a lie. (5) And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden. (6) Those people thought, like you, that God would never send down a Messenger. (7) And (the Jinn who had listened to the Qur'an said): We had sought the heaven but had found it filled with strong warders and meteors. (8) 'We used, indeed, to sit there in (hidden) stations, to (steal) a hearing; but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush. (9) and that “we do not know whether evil is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends to direct them to the Right Way”; (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 think that we cannot escape (from the punishment of) Allah in the earth, nor can we escape (from the punishment) by flight. (12) Hence, as soon as we heard this [call to His] guidance, we came to believe in it: and he who believes in his Sustainer need never have fear of loss or injustice. (13) And some of us have surrendered, and some of us have deviated. Those who have surrendered sought rectitude; (14) And as for the Qasitun (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood 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 thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Quran, and practice not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. Hell). (17) The places of worship belong to God; so call not, along with God, upon anyone. (18) ‘And that when Allah’s bondman stood up to worship Him, the jinns had almost crowded upon him.’” (19)
