28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ 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) 'It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allah). (2) and that “He exalted be His Majesty has not taken to Himself either a wife 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 that “we had thought that men and jinn would never speak a lie about Allah”, (5) ‘And indeed some men among humans used to take the protection of some men among jinns, so it further increased their haughtiness.’ (6) Those people thought, like you, that God would never send down a Messenger. (7) and that “we tried to pry (the secrets of) the heaven, but we found it full of terrible guards and shooting meteors”; (8) notwithstanding that we were established in positions [which we had thought well-suited] to listening to [whatever secrets might be in] it: and anyone who now [or ever] tries to listen will [likewise] find a flame lying in wait for him! (9) "'And [now we have become aware] that we [created beings] may not know whether evil fortune is intended for [any of] those who live on earth, or whether it is their Sustainer's will to endow them with consciousness of what is right: (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups each having a different way (religious sect, etc.). (11) ‘And we are certain that we cannot defeat Allah in the earth, nor can we run out of His grasp.’ (12) And when we heard the Message of guidance, we believed therein; and whosoever believeth in his Lord, he shall fear neither diminution nor wrong. (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) ‘And as for the unjust they are the fuel of hell.’” (15) If people were to keep firmly to the Right Way, We would have vouchsafed them abundant rain (16) "That We might try them by that (means). But if any turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to undergo a severe Penalty. (17) And the mosques are for Allah (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Allah. (18) and when Allah's servant stood up to call on Him, they well-nigh swarmed him. (19)
