Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ (Muhammad), say, "It has been revealed to me that a party of jinn has listened (to the recitation) of the Quran and has told (their people), "We heard an amazing reading (1) which guides to the right path; so we have believed in it and we will not associate anyone with our Lord, (2) And [it teaches] that exalted is the nobleness of our Lord; He has not taken a wife or a son (3) ‘And that the fool among us used to utter false exaggerations against Allah.’ (4) And that we thought that men and jinn did not utter a lie against Allah: (5) and that “some from among the humans used to seek protection of some among the jinn, and thus they increased the arrogance of the jinn”; (6) So they began to think, even as you do, that God would not resurrect any one. (7) We sought to reach heaven, but found it filled with strong guards and flames -- (8) We used to sit near by and try to listen to the heavens, but shooting flames now await those who try to do that. (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) Just as [we do not know how it happens] that some from among us are righteous, while some of us are [far] below that: we have always followed widely divergent 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 accepted faith in it; so whoever accepts faith in his Lord, has no fear neither of any loss nor of any injustice.’ (13) Some of us are obedient while others are wrongdoers; it is the obedient who have found the right path, (14) ‘And as for the unjust they are the fuel of hell.’” (15) [KNOW,] THEN, that if they [who have heard Our call] keep firmly to the [right] path, We shall certainly shower them with blessings abundant, (16) That We might try them there by. And whosoever turneth aside from the remembrance of his Lord, him He shall thrust into a torment vehement. (17) Mosques belong to Allah, so do not call to anyone else, other than Allah. (18) when God's servant stood up to pray to Him, they pressed close to him in great numbers, almost stifling him. (19)
