Jinns (Al-Jinn)
28 verses, revealed in Mecca after A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf) before Y S (Yaa Seen)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ 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 the right way, so we believe in it, and we will not set up any one with our Lord: (2) and exalted is the majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife nor a son. (3) "'And [now we know] that the foolish among us were wont to say outrageous things about God, (4) 'And verily, we thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allah. (5) And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in men from the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden. (6) And that they thought as you think, that Allah would not raise anyone: (7) And that we sought to reach heaven, but we found it filled with strong guards and flaming stars. (8) And we were wont to sit on seats therein to listen; but whosoever listeneth now findeth for him a dartin meteor in wait. (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) And that some of us are good and others of us are below that: we are sects following different ways: (11) And that we know that we cannot escape Allah in the earth, nor can we escape Him by flight: (12) Hence, as soon as we heard this [call to His] guidance, we came to believe in it: and he who believes in his Sustainer need never have fear of loss or injustice. (13) Some of us have surrendered (Muslims) and some of us have deviated. Those who surrendered sought the Right Path, (14) but as for those who abandon themselves to wrongdoing - they are indeed but fuel for [the fires 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) 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) And the prostrations are for Allah; wherefore call not along with Allah anyone. (18) and when Allah's servant stood up to call on Him, they well-nigh swarmed him. (19)
