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: 'It is revealed to me that a party of jinn listened then said: "We have indeed heard a wonderful Koran, (1) which guides to the right path; so we have believed in it and we will not associate anyone with our Lord, (2) our Lord is too exalted to have either a wife or son. (3) Certainly the foolish among us say preposterous things of God. (4) And that we thought that men and jinn did not utter a lie against Allah: (5) "Certain human beings sought refuge with certain jinn and this increased the rebelliousness of those jinn. (6) and they thought, even as you also thought, that God would never raise up anyone. (7) 'And we have sought to reach the heaven; but found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. (8) 'And verily, we used to sit there in stations, to (steal) a hearing, but any who listens now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush. (9) We do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them. (10) Some of us are righteous, while others are not; we follow divergent paths. (11) 'And we think that we cannot escape (from the punishment of) Allah in the earth, nor can we escape (from the punishment) by flight. (12) And that when we heard the guidance, we believed in it; so whoever believes in his Lord, he should neither fear loss nor being overtaken (by disgrace): (13) And that some of us are those who submit, and some of us are the deviators; so whoever submits, these aim at the right way: (14) But those who are iniquitous will be fuel for Hell. (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 through this bounty. Whoso turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to suffer a grievous chastisement; (17) The places of worship belong to God; so call not, along with God, upon anyone. (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)
