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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Say, (O Prophet), it was revealed to me that a band of jinn attentively listened to (the recitation of the Qur'an) and then (went back to their people) and said: (1) “We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur'an which guides to the Right Way; so we have come to believe in it, and we will not associate aught with Our Lord in His Divinity”; (2) 'And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children). (3) The dimwit one (the devil) among us has been telling confused lies about God. (4) and that “we had thought that men and jinn would never speak a lie about Allah”, (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 thought as you think, that Allah would not raise anyone: (7) 'And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. (8) and that “we would take up stations in the heaven to try to hear but anyone who now attempts to listen finds a shooting meteor in wait for him”; (9) we cannot tell if this bodes evil to those who dwell 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 that we know that we cannot escape Allah in the earth, nor can we escape Him by flight: (12) ‘And that when we heard the guidance, we accepted faith in it; so whoever accepts faith in his Lord, has no fear neither of any loss nor of any injustice.’ (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) And as for the Qasitun (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell, (15) And proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that ‘Had they remained upright on the straight path, We would have given them abundant water.’ (16) So We might test them therein. And whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord He will put into arduous punishment. (17) The mosques are for God's worship -- so do not invoke anyone else along with God -- (18) And that when the servant of Allah stood up calling upon Him, they wellnigh crowded him (to death). (19)
