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 Dispenser of Grace
۞ 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) guiding towards consciousness of what is right; and so we have come to believe in it. And we shall never ascribe divinity to anyone beside our Sustainer, (2) He -- exalted be our Lord's majesty! has not taken to Himself either consort or a son. (3) 'And that the foolish among us [i.e. Iblis (Satan) or the polytheists amongst the jinns] used to utter against Allah that which was wrong and not right. (4) and we had thought that men and jinn would never speak against God a lie. (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) so much so that they came to think, as you [once] thought, that God would never [again] send forth anyone [as His apostle]. (7) And we have sought [to reach] the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards and burning flames. (8) And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him. (9) And so we do not know whether evil is intended for those on earth, or whether their Lord intends to guide them. (10) And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways. (11) We realised that we could not weaken the power of God on earth, nor outpace Him by running away. (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) Some of us are Muslims and some of us have deviated from the Truth. Whoever has embraced Islam has followed the right guidance. (14) And as for the Qasitun (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell, (15) (Say): "If they keep to the right path We shall give them water in abundance to drink (16) so that We may test them by it -- whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord shall be sternly punished. (17) And that the mosques are Allah's, therefore call not upon any one with Allah: (18) Yet [thus it is] that whenever a servant of God stands up in prayer to Him, they [who are bent on denying the truth] would gladly overwhelm him with their crowds. (19)
