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
۞ (Muhammad), say, "It has been revealed to me that a party of jinn has listened (to the recitation) of the Quran and has told (their people), "We heard an amazing reading (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 the Majesty of our Lord, who has neither taken to Himself a wife, nor a son! (3) The ignorant fool among us has spoken outrageously against Allah, (4) and that [we were mistaken when] we thought that neither man nor [any of] the invisible forces would ever tell a lie about God. (5) 'True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly. (6) 'And they thought as you thought, that Allah will not send any Messenger (to mankind or jinns). (7) And that we sought to reach heaven, but we found it filled with strong guards and flaming stars. (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 do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them. (10) ‘And among us some are virtuous and some are the other type; we are split into several branches.’ (11) And we have become certain that we will never cause failure to Allah upon 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) Some of us are Muslims and some of us have deviated from the Truth. Whoever has embraced Islam has followed the right guidance. (14) However, the deviators from the Truth will be the fuel for hell". (15) And had they kept to the path surely We would have watered them with rain plenteous. (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) The places of worship belong to God; so call not, along with God, upon anyone. (18) when God's servant stood up to pray to Him, they pressed close to him in great numbers, almost stifling him.
