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 Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Say, "It has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened [to the Quran] and they said, "We have heard a really wonderful recital, (1) that guides to the Right Path. We believe in it and we will not associate anyone with our Lord. (2) for [we know] that sublimely exalted is our Sustainer's majesty: no consort has He ever taken unto Himself, nor a son! (3) The ignorant fool among us has spoken outrageously against Allah, (4) And that we thought that men and jinn did 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 indeed they supposed, even as ye suppose, that Allah would not raise anyone (from the dead) - (7) And we stretched towards heaven, but we found it filled with terrible guards and 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) And we do not know [therefore] whether evil is intended for those on earth or whether their Lord intends for them a right course. (10) And of us there are some righteous, and of us are some otherwise; we have been following very diverse paths. (11) and that “we thought that we will neither be able to frustrate Allah on earth, nor frustrate Him 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) Some of us are Muslims and some of us have deviated from the Truth. Whoever has embraced Islam has followed the right guidance. (14) But those who are iniquitous will be fuel for Hell. (15) If they (non-Muslims) had believed in Allah, and went on the Right Way (i.e. Islam) We should surely have bestowed on them water (rain) in abundance. (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 the prostrations are for Allah; wherefore call not along with Allah anyone. (18) "Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd." (19)
