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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Say: It has been revealed to me that a party of the jinn listened, and they said: Surely we have heard a wonderful Quran, (1) Guiding to the right way, so we believe in it, and we will not set up any one with our Lord: (2) And [it teaches] that exalted is the nobleness of our Lord; He has not taken a wife or a son (3) And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah: (4) and that “we had thought that men and jinn would never speak a lie about Allah”, (5) Yet [it has always happened] that certain kinds of humans would seek refuge with certain kinds of [such] invisible forces: but these only increased their confusion (6) and they thought, even as you also thought, that God would never raise up 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) We sat in observatories to listen; but any one who listened found a shooting star 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) ‘And among us some are virtuous and some are the other type; we are split into several branches.’ (11) We know that we cannot frustrate Allah in the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight. (12) And that when we heard the guidance, we believed in it; so whoever believes in his Lord, he should neither fear loss nor being overtaken (by disgrace): (13) Some of us are obedient while others are wrongdoers; it is the obedient who have found the right path, (14) But as for the unjust, they will be, for Hell, firewood.' (15) (Say): "If they keep to the right path We shall give them water in abundance to drink (16) "That We might try them by that (means). But if any turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to undergo a severe Penalty. (17) And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. (18) And that when the Servant of Allah stood up supplicating Him, they almost became about him a compacted mass." (19)
