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 a company of the jinn gave ear, then they said, "We have indeed heard a Koran wonderful, (1) Guiding unto rectitude; wherefore we have believed therein, and we shall by no means associate with our Lord anyone. (2) ‘And that our Lord’s Majesty is Supreme He has neither chosen a wife nor a child.’ (3) And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah: (4) and that [we were mistaken when] we thought that neither man nor [any of] the invisible forces would ever tell a lie about God. (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) 'And they (came to) think as ye thought, that Allah would not raise up any one (to Judgment). (7) ‘And we reached the sky, so we found it strongly guarded and filled with comets.’ (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 we do not know [therefore] whether evil is intended for those on earth or whether their Lord intends for them a right course. (10) Some of us are righteous, but some are otherwise, we are sects that differ. (11) And we have become certain that we will never cause failure to Allah upon earth, nor can we escape 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 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) ‘And as for the unjust they are the fuel of hell.’” (15) And proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that ‘Had they remained upright on the straight path, We would have given them abundant water.’ (16) so that We might try them through this bounty. Whoso turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to suffer a grievous chastisement; (17) And the mosques are for Allah (Alone), so invoke not 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)
