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 benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ SAY: "It has been revealed to me that some of the unseen beings gave ear [to this divine writ,] and thereupon said [unto their fellow-beings]: "'Verily, we have heard a wondrous discourse, (1) guiding towards consciousness of what is right; and so we have come to believe in it. And we shall never ascribe divinity to anyone beside our Sustainer, (2) and exalted is the majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife nor a son. (3) The dimwit one (the devil) among us has been telling confused lies about God. (4) We had supposed that men and jinn would never utter a lie against 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 thought, even as you also thought, that God would never raise up anyone. (7) "'And [so it happened] that we reached out towards heaven: but we found it filled with mighty 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) And that we know not whether evil is meant for those who are on earth or whether their Lord means to bring them good: (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 we know that we cannot escape from Allah in the earth, nor can we escape by flight. (12) When we heard the Guidance, we believed in it, and whosoever believes in his Lord shall fear neither shortage nor injustice. (13) And among us are Muslims [in submission to Allah], and among us are the unjust. And whoever has become Muslim - those have sought out the right course. (14) And as for the Qasitun (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for 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) so as to test them by this means: for he who shall turn away from the remembrance of his Sustainer, him will He cause to undergo suffering most grievous. (17) The mosques are for God's worship -- so do not invoke anyone else along with God -- (18) When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen). (19)
