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
۞ Say, [O Muhammad], "It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an. (1) Which guideth unto righteousness, so we believe in it and we ascribe no partner unto 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 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 verily, we thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allah. (5) But some men used to seek refuge with some jinns, and this increased their waywardness; (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 take up a position to listen, but whoever listens now finds a flaming fire lying 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) For some of us are upright and some otherwise: Surely we follow different ways. (11) Indeed, we thought that we should never be able to frustrate God in the earth, neither be able to frustrate Him by flight. (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) Some of us are obedient while others are wrongdoers; it is the obedient who have found the right path, (14) But as for the unjust, they will be, for Hell, firewood.' (15) If they (the idolaters) tread the right path, We shall give them to drink of water in abundance (16) So that We might try them with respect to it; and whoever turns aside from the reminder of his Lord, He will make him enter into an afflicting chastisement: (17) Mosques belong to Allah, so do not call to anyone else, other than Allah. (18) When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen). (19)
