Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Say (O Muhammad): It is revealed unto me that a company of the Jinn gave ear, and they said: Lo! we have heard a marvellous Qur'an, (1) 'It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord. (2) ‘And that our Lord’s Majesty is Supreme He has neither chosen a wife nor a child.’ (3) The ignorant fool among us has spoken outrageously against Allah, (4) and we had thought that men and jinn would never speak against God a lie. (5) But some men used to seek refuge with some jinns, and this increased their waywardness; (6) And that they thought as you think, that Allah would not raise anyone: (7) and that “we tried to pry (the secrets of) the heaven, but we found it full of terrible guards and shooting meteors”; (8) And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him. (9) 'And we know not whether evil is intended for those on earth, or whether their Lord intends for them a Right Path. (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths. (11) We have realized that we could never thwart God on earth and that we would never be able to thwart Him by flight. (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) Some of us have come to submission, and some of us are iniquitous.'" Those who have submitted have taken the right course; (14) but those who deviated from the Truth, will be the fuel for Hell.” (15) And that if they should keep to the (right) way, We would certainly give them to drink of abundant water, (16) In order to try them through it. But whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, will be given increasing torment by Him." (17) Mosques belong to Allah, so do not call to anyone else, other than Allah. (18) And when the bondman of Allah stood calling upon Him, they well nigh pressed on him stifling. (19)
