Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
Allah - beginning with the name of - 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) It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it. And we will never associate with our Lord anyone. (2) and that “He exalted be His Majesty has not taken to Himself either a wife or a son”; (3) And the foolish among us were wont to forge lies against Allah exceedingly. (4) 'And verily, we thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allah. (5) But there were certain men of mankind who would take refuge with certain men of the jinn, and they increased them in vileness, (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) we used to take up a position to listen, but whoever listens now finds a flaming fire lying in wait for him -- (9) And we know not whether harm is boded unto all who are in the earth, or whether their Lord intendeth guidance for them. (10) And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways. (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 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 have surrendered (Muslims) and some of us have deviated. Those who surrendered sought the Right Path, (14) But as for the unjust, they will be, for Hell, firewood.' (15) If people were to keep firmly to the Right Way, We would have vouchsafed them abundant rain (16) and tested them with it. And whosoever turns away from his Lord's Remembrance, He will hurl him into a stern punishment. (17) And [know] that all worship is due to God [alone]: hence, do not invoke anyone side by side with God! (18) ‘And that when Allah’s bondman stood up to worship Him, the jinns had almost crowded upon him.’” (19)
