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 Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur'an). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital! (1) Guiding unto rectitude; wherefore we have believed therein, and we shall by no means associate with our Lord anyone. (2) 'And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children). (3) And [now we know] that the foolish among us have been saying outrageous things about God. (4) we never thought that either human or jinn would ever tell a lie against Allah!' (5) And indeed (O Muhammad) individuals of humankind used to invoke the protection of individuals of the jinn, so that they increased them in revolt against Allah); (6) 'And they (came to) think as ye thought, that Allah would not raise up any one (to Judgment). (7) And we stretched towards heaven, but we found it filled with terrible guards and meteors. (8) And that we used to sit in some of the sitting-places thereof to steal a hearing, but he who would (try to) listen now would find a flame lying in wait for him: (9) We do not know whether by this arrangement God intends benefit and guidance for the people of the earth or only evil. (10) and that “some of us are upright and some of us are otherwise for we follow widely divergent paths”; (11) We have realized that we could never thwart God on earth and that we would never be able to thwart Him by flight. (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 among us are Muslims [in submission to Allah], and among us are the unjust. And whoever has become Muslim - those have sought out the right course. (14) but those who deviated from the Truth, will be the fuel for Hell.” (15) Would they but go straight on the way, We would give them to drink of water copious, (16) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Quran, and practice not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. Hell). (17) And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. (18) when God's servant stood up to pray to Him, they pressed close to him in great numbers, almost stifling him. (19)
