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 is revealed to me that a party of jinn listened then said: "We have indeed heard a wonderful Koran, (1) “We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur'an which guides to the Right Way; so we have come to believe in it, and we will not associate aught with Our Lord in His Divinity”; (2) for [we know] that sublimely exalted is our Sustainer's majesty: no consort has He ever taken unto Himself, nor a son! (3) And that our foolish one has been saying about Allah an excessive transgression. (4) we never thought that either human or jinn would ever tell a lie against Allah!' (5) 'And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief. (6) so much so that they came to think, as you [once] thought, that God would never [again] send forth anyone [as His apostle]. (7) We sought to reach heaven, but found it filled with strong guards and flames -- (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) We do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them. (10) ‘And among us some are virtuous and some are the other type; we are split into several branches.’ (11) Indeed, we thought that we should never be able to frustrate God in the earth, neither be able to frustrate Him by flight. (12) and that “when we heard the teaching of the Right Way we came to believe in it; he who believes in His Lord shall have no fear of suffering loss or being subjected to any injustice”; (13) And there are among us some who have surrendered (to Allah) and there are among us some who are unjust. And whoso hath surrendered to Allah, such have taken the right path purposefully. (14) but as for those who have deviated, they have become firewood for Gehenna!"' (15) If they (the idolaters) tread the right path, We shall give them to drink of water in abundance (16) so that We may test them by it -- whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord shall be sternly punished. (17) And the places of worship are only for Allah, so pray not unto anyone along with Allah. (18) "Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd." (19)
