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 Compassionate, the 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 to rectitude. We believe in it, and we will not associate with our Lord anyone. (2) And He - exalted be the majesty of our Lord! hath taken neither a spouse nor a son. (3) And that our foolish one has been saying about Allah an excessive transgression. (4) ‘Whereas we thought that men and jinns would never fabricate a lie against Allah!’ (5) "Certain human beings sought refuge with certain jinn and this increased the rebelliousness of those jinn. (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) We would sit there on seats to hear; but any listening now finds a meteor in wait for him. (9) and that “we do not know whether evil is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends to direct them to the Right Way”; (10) 'There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths. (11) "'And withal, we have come to know that we can never elude God [while we live] on earth, and that we can never elude Him by escaping [from life]. (12) And when we heard the guidance, we believed therein, and whoso believeth in his Lord, he feareth neither loss nor oppression. (13) ‘And that some among us are Muslims and some are the unjust; and whoever has accepted Islam it is they who have thought rightly.’ (14) However, the deviators from the Truth will be the fuel 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) "That We might try them by that (means). But if any turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to undergo a severe Penalty. (17) Mosques belong to Allah, so do not call to anyone else, other than Allah. (18) And when the bondman of Allah stood calling upon Him, they well nigh pressed on him stifling. (19)
