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
۞ Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur'an). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital! (1) guiding to rectitude. We believe in it, and we will not associate with our Lord anyone. (2) 'And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children). (3) The fool among us spoke against God outrage, (4) And verily we! we had imagined that humankind and jinn would never forge against Allah a lie. (5) And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden. (6) And indeed they imagined, even as ye imagined, that Allah will not raise any one. (7) We sought to pry into the secrets of the heavens, but found it full of fierce guards and shooting flames. (8) and that “we would take up stations in the heaven to try to hear but anyone who now attempts to listen finds a shooting meteor in wait for him”; (9) And so we know not whether evil is intended for those in the earth, or whether their Lord intends for them rectitude. (10) and that “some of us are upright and some of us are otherwise for we follow widely divergent paths”; (11) ‘And we are certain that we cannot defeat Allah in the earth, nor can we run out of His grasp.’ (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) and that “among us some are Muslims (Those who have submitted to Allah), and some of us are deviant. So those who became Muslims found the Right Course; (14) And as for those who are unjust, they are firewood for hell. (15) And had they kept to the path surely We would have watered them with rain plenteous. (16) as a trial for them. God will make those who disregard the guidance from their Lord suffer increasing torment. (17) The mosques are for God's worship -- so do not invoke anyone else along with God -- (18) when God's servant stood up to pray to Him, they pressed close to him in great numbers, almost stifling him. (19)
