Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ 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) Which guideth unto righteousness, so we believe in it and we ascribe no partner unto our Lord. (2) 'And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children). (3) And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah: (4) and that [we were mistaken when] we thought that neither man nor [any of] the invisible forces would ever tell a lie about God. (5) 'True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly. (6) ‘And that they assumed, like you humans assume, that Allah would not send any Noble Messenger.’ (7) 'And we have sought to reach the heaven; but found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. (8) we used to take up a position to listen, but whoever listens now finds a flaming fire lying in wait for him -- (9) And that we know not whether evil is meant for those who are on earth or whether their Lord means to bring them good: (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups each having a different way (religious sect, etc.). (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) And of us some are Muslims, and of us some are deviators. Then whosoever hath embraced Islam - such have endeavoured after a path of rectitude. (14) but as for those who abandon themselves to wrongdoing - they are indeed but fuel for [the fires of] hell!'" (15) If they (the idolaters) tread the right path, We shall give them to drink of water in abundance (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) and that “mosques belong to Allah, so do not invoke anyone with Him”; (18) When the servant of God stood calling on Him, they were wellnigh upon him in swarms. (19)
