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: "I HAVE been informed that a number of jinns had listened; then said: 'We have heard the wondrous Qur'an, (1) Which guideth unto righteousness, so we believe in it and we ascribe no partner unto our Lord. (2) And [it teaches] that exalted is the nobleness of our Lord; He has not taken a wife or a son (3) 'There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah; (4) And we had thought that mankind and the jinn would never speak about Allah a lie. (5) Some men used to seek refuge with the jinn in the past, but that only increased their insolence. (6) so much so that they came to think, as you [once] thought, that God would never [again] send forth anyone [as His apostle]. (7) (The jinn continued saying): "We made our way towards heaven, but we found it filled with stern guards and a flame. (8) We used to sit near by and try to listen to the heavens, but shooting flames now await those who try to do that. (9) And so we know not whether evil is intended for those in the earth, or whether their Lord intends for them rectitude. (10) For some of us are upright and some otherwise: Surely we follow different ways. (11) We knew that we could never challenge God whether we stayed on earth or fled elsewhere. (12) Hence, as soon as we heard this [call to His] guidance, we came to believe in it: and he who believes in his Sustainer need never have fear of loss or injustice. (13) "'Yet [it is true] that among us are such as have surrendered themselves to God - just as there are among us such as have abandoned themselves to wrongdoing. Now as for those who surrender themselves to Him - it is they that have attained to consciousness of what is right; (14) 'But those who swerve,- they are (but) fuel for Hell-fire'- (15) [KNOW,] THEN, that if they [who have heard Our call] keep firmly to the [right] path, We shall certainly shower them with blessings abundant, (16) so that We might try them through this bounty. Whoso turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to suffer a grievous chastisement; (17) The mosques are for God's worship -- so do not invoke anyone else along with God -- (18) Do not prostrate before anyone other than Him. When the servant of God (Muhammad) preached (his message) the jinn would all crowd around him. (19)
