72: Al-Jinn (الجن)
1: Say: It has been revealed to me that a party of the jinn listened, and they said: Surely we have heard a wonderful Quran,
2: Guiding to the right way, so we believe in it, and we will not set up any one with our Lord:
3: And that He-- exalted be the majesty of our Lord-- has not taken a consort, nor a son:
4: And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah:
5: And that we thought that men and jinn did not utter a lie against Allah:
6: And that persons from among men used to seek refuge with persons from among jinn, so they increased them in wrongdoing:
7: And that they thought as you think, that Allah would not raise anyone:
8: And that we sought to reach heaven, but we found it filled with strong guards and flaming stars.
9: And that we used to sit in some of the sitting-places thereof to steal a hearing, but he who would (try to) listen now would find a flame lying in wait for him:
10: And that we know not whether evil is meant for those who are on earth or whether their Lord means to bring them good:
11: And that some of us are good and others of us are below that: we are sects following different ways:
12: And that we know that we cannot escape Allah in the earth, nor can we escape Him by flight:
13: And that when we heard the guidance, we believed in it; so whoever believes in his Lord, he should neither fear loss nor being overtaken (by disgrace):
14: And that some of us are those who submit, and some of us are the deviators; so whoever submits, these aim at the right way:
15: And as to the deviators, they are fuel of hell:
16: And that if they should keep to the (right) way, We would certainly give them to drink of abundant water,
17: So that We might try them with respect to it; and whoever turns aside from the reminder of his Lord, He will make him enter into an afflicting chastisement:
18: And that the mosques are Allah's, therefore call not upon any one with Allah:
19: And that when the servant of Allah stood up calling upon Him, they wellnigh crowded him (to death).
20: Say: I only call upon my Lord, and I do not associate any one with Him.
21: Say: I do not control for you evil or good.
22: Say: Surely no one can protect me against Allah, nor can I find besides Him any place of refuge:
23: (It is) only a delivering (of communications) from Allah and His messages; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger surely he shall have the fire of hell to abide therein for a long time.
24: Until when they see what they are threatened with, then shall they know who is weaker in helpers and fewer in number.
25: Say: I do not know whether that with which you are threatened be nigh or whether my Lord will appoint for it a term:
26: The Knower of the unseen! so He does not reveal His secrets to any,
27: Except to him whom He chooses as a messenger; for surely He makes a guard to march before him and after him,
28: So that He may know that they have truly delivered the messages of their Lord, and He encompasses what is with them and He records the number of all things.
