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 some of the unseen beings gave ear [to this divine writ,] and thereupon said [unto their fellow-beings]: "'Verily, we have heard a wondrous discourse, (1) Guiding unto rectitude; wherefore we have believed therein, and we shall by no means associate with our Lord anyone. (2) Exalted is the glory of our Lord; He has neither wife nor son. (3) 'There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah; (4) And verily we! we had imagined that humankind and jinn would never forge against Allah a lie. (5) And persons among humankind have been seeking refuge with persons of the jinn, so that they increased them in evil disposition. (6) and that “they thought, even as you thought, that Allah would never raise anyone (as a Messenger)”; (7) 'And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. (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) We do not know whether by this arrangement God intends benefit and guidance for the people of the earth or only evil. (10) As for us, some of us are righteous and others are not. We have all followed different ways. (11) 'But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight. (12) And when we heard the guidance, we believed in it. And whoever believes in his Lord will not fear deprivation or burden. (13) And some of us have surrendered, and some of us have deviated. Those who have surrendered sought rectitude; (14) but as for those who abandon themselves to wrongdoing - they are indeed but fuel for [the fires of] hell!'" (15) If they had followed the Path We would give to them abundant water to drink, (16) ‘In order to test them with it; and whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord He will put him in a punishment that keeps on increasing.’ (17) "And the places of worship are for Allah (alone): So invoke not any one along with Allah; (18) "Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd." (19)
