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: "I HAVE been informed that a number of jinns had listened; then said: 'We have heard the wondrous Qur'an, (1) that guides to the Right Path. We believe in it and we will not associate anyone with our Lord. (2) He -- exalted be our Lord's majesty! has not taken to Himself either consort or 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) 'And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief. (6) So they began to think, even as you do, that God would not resurrect any one. (7) 'And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we 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 so we do not know whether evil is intended for those on earth, or whether their Lord intends to guide them. (10) As for us, some of us are righteous and others are not. We have all followed different ways. (11) ‘And we are certain that we cannot defeat Allah in the earth, nor can we run out of His grasp.’ (12) So when we heard the guidance we believed in it; and he who believes in his Lord will neither fear loss nor force. (13) And some of us have surrendered, and some of us have deviated. Those who have surrendered sought rectitude; (14) And as for the Qasitun (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell, (15) And [Allah revealed] that if they had remained straight on the way, We would have given them abundant provision (16) That We may test them thereby, and whoso turneth away from the remembrance of his Lord; He will thrust him into ever-growing torment. (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).
