Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that some jinns attentively listened to my recitation, so they said, ‘We have heard a unique Qur’an.’ (1) which guides people to the right path and we believe in it. We shall never consider anyone equal to our Lord; (2) He -- exalted be our Lord's majesty! has not taken to Himself either consort or a son. (3) And that the foolish one among us used to speak concerning Allah an atrocious lie. (4) We had in fact thought that men and jinns would never speak a lie about God, (5) Yet [it has always happened] that certain kinds of humans would seek refuge with certain kinds of [such] invisible forces: but these only increased their confusion (6) Those people thought, like you, that God would never send down a Messenger. (7) And we have sought [to reach] the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards and burning flames. (8) notwithstanding that we were established in positions [which we had thought well-suited] to listening to [whatever secrets might be in] it: and anyone who now [or ever] tries to listen will [likewise] find a flame lying in wait for him! (9) And we do not know [therefore] whether evil is intended for those on earth or whether their Lord intends for them a right course. (10) And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways. (11) and that “we thought that we will neither be able to frustrate Allah on earth, nor frustrate 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) However, the deviators from the Truth will be the fuel for hell". (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) and tested them with it. And whosoever turns away from his Lord's Remembrance, He will hurl him into a stern punishment. (17) And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. (18) When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen). (19)
