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
۞ 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) Guiding to the right way, so we believe in it, and we will not set up any one with our Lord: (2) And He - exalted be the majesty of our Lord! hath taken neither a spouse nor a son. (3) and that “the foolish among us have been wont to say outrageous things about Allah”; (4) 'And verily, we thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allah. (5) And persons among humankind have been seeking refuge with persons of the jinn, so that they increased them in evil disposition. (6) 'And they thought as you thought, that Allah will not send any Messenger (to mankind or jinns). (7) and that “we tried to pry (the secrets of) the heaven, but we found it full of terrible guards and shooting meteors”; (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 whether by this arrangement God intends benefit and guidance for the people of the earth or only evil. (10) And that some of us are good and others of us are below that: we are sects following different ways: (11) ‘And we are certain that we cannot defeat Allah in the earth, nor can we run out of His grasp.’ (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) and that “among us some are Muslims (Those who have submitted to Allah), and some of us are deviant. So those who became Muslims found the Right Course; (14) But those who are iniquitous will be fuel for Hell. (15) And proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that ‘Had they remained upright on the straight path, We would have given them abundant water.’ (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 that “mosques belong to Allah, so do not invoke anyone with Him”; (18) And when the slave of Allah stood up in prayer to Him, they crowded on him, almost stifling. (19)
