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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Say, "It has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened [to the Quran] and they said, "We have heard a really wonderful recital, (1) It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it. And we will never associate with our Lord anyone. (2) He -- exalted be our Lord's majesty! has not taken to Himself either consort or a son. (3) And that the foolish one among us used to speak concerning Allah an atrocious lie. (4) And that we thought that men and jinn did not utter a lie against Allah: (5) And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden. (6) so much so that they came to think, as you [once] thought, that God would never [again] send forth anyone [as His apostle]. (7) We sought to reach heaven, but found it filled with strong guards and flames -- (8) There, we would sit to eavesdrop, but now an eavesdropper finds a flame in wait for him. (9) And we know not whether evil is boded for those who are on the earth, or whether their Lord intendeth for them a right direction. (10) And some of us are the righteous, and some of us are otherwise; we are sects differing. (11) 'But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight. (12) And when we heard the Message of guidance, we believed therein; and whosoever believeth in his Lord, he shall fear neither diminution nor wrong. (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 are wrongdoers will become the fuel of 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 therein. And whosoever turns away from the Remembrance of his Lord, He will thrust him into chastisement rigorous. (17) ‘And that the mosques are for Allah only therefore do not worship anyone along with Allah.’ (18) When the worshiper of Allah stood supplicating to Him, they swarmed around him (Prophet Muhammad).
