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 band of the jinn listened [to the Quran] and they said, "We have heard a really wonderful recital, (1) It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it. And we will never associate with our Lord anyone. (2) And (we believe) that He - exalted be the glory of our Lord! - hath taken neither wife nor son, (3) Certainly the foolish among us say preposterous things of God. (4) and we had thought that men and jinn would never speak against God a lie. (5) And indeed (O Muhammad) individuals of humankind used to invoke the protection of individuals of the jinn, so that they increased them in revolt against Allah); (6) ‘And that they assumed, like you humans assume, that Allah would not send any Noble Messenger.’ (7) "'And [so it happened] that we reached out towards heaven: but we found it filled with mighty guards and flames, (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 [now we have become aware] that we [created beings] may not know whether evil fortune is intended for [any of] those who live on earth, or whether it is their Sustainer's will to endow them with consciousness of what is right: (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 that “we thought that we will neither be able to frustrate Allah on earth, nor frustrate Him by flight”; (12) When we heard the call to guidance, we believed in it. He who believes in his Lord has no fear of loss or of injustice. (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) but as for those who have deviated, they have become firewood for Gehenna!"' (15) (Say): "If they keep to the right path We shall give them water in abundance to drink (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) All places of worship are for God; so do not invoke any one with God. (18) and when Allah's servant stood up to call on Him, they well-nigh swarmed him. (19)
