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 has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an. (1) ‘That guides to the path of goodness, we have therefore accepted faith in it; and we shall never ascribe anyone as a partner to our Lord.’ (2) and exalted is the majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife nor a son. (3) Certainly the foolish among us say preposterous things of God. (4) and that “we had thought that men and jinn would never speak a lie about Allah”, (5) But there were certain men of mankind who would take refuge with certain men of the jinn, and they increased them in vileness, (6) And indeed they supposed, even as ye suppose, that Allah would not raise anyone (from the dead) - (7) We sought to pry into the secrets of the heavens, but found it full of fierce guards and shooting flames. (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 do not know whether harm is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends goodness for them.’ (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 know that we cannot escape from Allah in the earth, nor can we escape by flight. (12) and that “when we heard the teaching of the Right Way we came to believe in it; he who believes in His Lord shall have no fear of suffering loss or being subjected to any injustice”; (13) 'And of us some are Muslims (who have submitted to Allah, after listening to this Quran), and of us some are Al-Qasitun (disbelievers those who have deviated from the Right Path)'. And whosoever has embraced Islam (i.e. has become a Muslim by submitting to Allah), then such have sought the Right Path." (14) but those who have deviated shall become the fuel of Gehenna (Hell). (15) Had they (jinn and mankind) remained steadfast in their religion (Islam), We would certainly have given them abundant water to drink (16) So We might test them therein. And whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord He will put into arduous punishment. (17) and that “mosques belong to Allah, so do not invoke anyone with Him”; (18) And when the bondman of Allah stood calling upon Him, they well nigh pressed on him stifling. (19)
